Stochastic RSI

Program 60 consists of a stochastic of the RSI indicator and show me study. The stochastic of the RSI can be helpful in identifying potential  tops and bottoms on a chart.

The program 60 packages includes:

  • An indicator (_Program60) that plots the stochastic of RSI and a smoothed version of the stochastic of RSI. It also looks for divergence between price and either the stochastic of RSI or the smoothed version of the stochastic of RSI, depending on a user input. When divergence is found, lines are drawn between the price points on the chart.
  • A show me study (_Program60-ShowMe) that plots at the turning points of the stochastic of RSI or the smoothed version of the stochastic of RSI, depending on a user input. It is filtered according to a stochastic being overbought or oversold.
  • Gold pass members can also access a free video below that shows how to use a GlobalValue to communicate a user input from the indicator to the show me study.

The programs work with charts, RadarScreen and Scanner and with both TradeStation and MultiCharts. An ELD file containing both programs may be downloaded for $49.95.

In order to be MultiCharts compatible, the indicator uses legacy drawing object to draw lines on the charts indicating divergence. On tick charts these lines may be misplaced by several bars if those bars share the same minute based time signature.
