Short Summary
  • This indicator takes the differences in the previous 4 period OHLC inputs, and compares them to the previously closed candle input. The difference is then placed into an oscillator that when all four inputs are scrolled back on, shows an EKG appearing oscillator / volatility measure for traders to use on indexes, tickers and markets that do not allow typical volume based indicators.
