File Name: RSI_ROC.efs
Description:
RSI based on ROC
Formula Parameters:
- Length of RSI : 20
- Length of ROC : 20
- Source of ROC : Close
- Upper : 70
- Lower : 30
Notes:
This is the new-age indicator which is version of RSI calculated upon the Rate-of-change indicator.
The name "Relative Strength Index" is slightly misleading as the RSI does not compare the relative strength of two securities, but rather the internal strength of a single security. A more appropriate name
might be "Internal Strength Index." Relative strength charts that compare two market indices, which are often referred to as Comparative Relative Strength.
And in its turn, the Rate-of-Change ("ROC") indicator displays the difference between the current price and the price x-time periods ago. The difference can be displayed in either points or as a percentage. The Momentum indicator displays the same information, but expresses it as a ratio.
