MetaStock Formulas

 

SVE_ARSI

Looking for a way to have as much as possible reliable divergence signals, I was thinking of using a smaller average in the creation of the RSI oscillator. The original RSI uses the same RSI averaging period both for the up closing and down closing bars. However, to me, more logical could be using the number of up bars for averaging the up closing and the number of down bars for averaging the down closing in the selected RSI period. So, I created ARSI, an RSI with an “Asymmetrical” averaging period. The formula is here.

 

Average heikin ashi closing price

Heikin ashi, Japanese for “average bar”, is a technique using a special kind of candle stick bars for better visualizing price trends. This technique has been introduced by Dan Valcu in the February 2004 issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine.

 

 

SVAPO

SVAPO or "Short term Volume And Price Oscillator", is my oscillator based on price and volume, looking at the relationship between these two components in an up trending and a down trending market. I like the name SVAPO, because it also starts with my initials! Find the SVAPO formule HERE.

 

SVE_Stop_Trail%

The basic trailing stop trading method formula will switch from support to resistance and visa-versa when breaking support or resistance. For the fixed percentage trailing stop method we calculate the maximum allowed loss based on a fixed percentage of the closing price. Additionally I am showing you the formulas to use a fixed percentage trailing stop from a start date for either a long or a short trade. HERE are the formulas.

SVE_Stop_Trail_ATR

The basic ATR trailing stop trading method formula will switch from support to resistance and visa-versa when breaking support or resistance. For the ATR trailing stop method we calculate the maximum allowed loss based on the basic ATR function multiplied by a factor. HERE are the formulas.

 

SVE_Stop_Trail_ModATR

The basic modified ATR trailing stop trading method formula will switch from support to resistance and visa-versa when breaking support or resistance. For the modified ATR trailing stop method we calculate the maximum allowed loss based on the ATR function multiplied by a factor. HERE are the formulas.

 

SVE_TRENDS_Trail

The basic trailing stop trading method formula will switch from support to resistance and visa-versa when breaking support or resistance. If we want a short term trailing stop it will have to move much closer to the price action. So, for the creation of TR&NDS we will look directly at the price movement. HERE are the formulas.


HACO

Analyzing a candlestick chart gives a quite good idea of what is going on in the market. Candlestick patterns and the resistance or support from price pivots and rising or falling gaps together with the use of trend lines are excellent technical trading tools. Nevertheless starting a trade and deciding to close a trade, candle after candle, remains a difficult task. HACO or the "Heikin Ashi Candles Oscillator" will help you to decide. Find the formula HERE.

Heikin ashi TEMA average crossing

Heikin ashi, Japanese for “average bar,” is a technique used to better visualize price trends by recalculating the standard candlesticks. This technique was introduced by Dan Valcu in 2004. The average heikin ashi closing I calculate dividing the sum of the re-calculated heikin ashi values for open, high, low and close by 4. You can use a heikin ashi TEMA average smoothed value to create fast reliable crossings. HERE is the formula.

 

Smoothed Bollinger %b indicator

%b is a measure of where price is in relation to the outer Bollinger bands and therefore strongly related to volatility. %b is created as an oscillator to show overbought and oversold situations when price is moving close or beyond the upper or lower Bollinger bands. HERE is a nicely smoothed version of this oscillator.
