Approaching these points means that trend is over and it can change direction.  Line 0 is accepted as centre. For example, average line exceeds value of +100 and it indicates that prices reach at overbought area, and purchase is not made in the areas so selling might begin. Line, which is under -100, indicates that prices are at oversold areas. And it is construed that selling shouldn’t be made in these areas, and prices will increase again.
