Indicator: Derivative Oscillator

9057 7 301
Constance Brown's Derivative Oscillator was published in her book "Technical Analysis for the Trading Professional".

The oscillator uses a 14-period RSI . The RSI is then double smoothed with exponential moving averages. The default settings for the smoothing periods are 5 and 3.

In a second step a signal line is generated from the smoothed RSI by calculating a simple moving average with a period of 9.

The Derivative Oscillator is calculated as the difference between the smoothed RSI and the signal line and displayed as histogram.

All the values are configurable.

Thanks for your prompt reply. I am trying to read her paper on how to trade with this indicator.
Please pardon the newbie question, but is there a way to import the derivative oscillator into Thinkorswim's Thinkscript?
