Description:

This is one of the techniques described by William Blau in his book "Momentum, Direction and Divergence" (1995). If you like to learn more, we advise you to read this book. His book focuses on three key aspects of trading: momentum, direction and divergence. Blau, who was an electrical engineer before becoming a trader, thoroughly examines the relationship between price and momentum in step-by-step examples. From this grounding, he then looks at the deficiencies in other oscillators and introduces some innovative techniques, including a fresh twist on Stochastics. On directional issues, he analyzes the intricacies of ADX and offers a unique approach to help define trending and non-trending periods.

Usage:

The TSI is a smoothed price momentum oscillator and is something of a cross between the RSI and the MACD. The indicator looks for changes in the direction of momentum (reversals). True Strength is a variation of the Relative Strength indicator. It uses a double smoothed exponential moving average of price momentum to eliminate choppy price changes and spot trend changes. This indicator has little or no time lag. An increasing True Strength value indicates increasing momentum in the direction of price movement.




Inputs:

Price - data series
r - Length of first EMA smoothing of 1 day momentum
s - Length of second EMA smoothing of 1 day smoothing
u - Length of third EMA smoothing of 1 day momentum
Zeroline - zeroline
SmthLen - Length of EMA signal line

EasyLanguage Code:
INPUTS: PRICE(C), R(4),  S(8), U(6), ZEROLINE(0), SMTHLEN(3);


VALUE1 = TSI(PRICE, R, S, U);

VALUE2 = XAVERAGE(TSI(PRICE, R, S, U), SMTHLEN);

PLOT1(VALUE1, "ERGOTIC");
PLOT2(0," ZLINE");
PLOT3(VALUE2, "SIGLIN");
