I have a very simple x-len momentum strategy that trades on CL (1 hr bar). The performance has positive for the past 5 years. But what has been negatively impacting the performance is sometimes the momentum indicator flip-flop between positive and negative and lead the buy and sell every bar for a couple of hrs....

What is the best secondary indicator that can help slow down the sensitivity of my momentum indicator?

I recommend to use price confirmation. If the indicator produced a buy signal, get into the trade on a BUY STOP if it breaks a certain high/ price confirmation, that will probably be the best filter for the "noise"
