Force Index

774 2 284
Hi,
This Indicator plots the Force Index as described by Dr             . Alexander
Elder in "Trading For a Living." The ForceIndex indicator relates
price to volume by multiplying net change and volume . ForceIndex is
calculated using the following equation:
ForceIndex = Volume (today) * (Close(this period) - Close(last period))
ForceIndex is typically presented as two smoothed averages (slow and fast)
to avoid false signals.

Great indicator, thanks!!

One issue that I have if you can help....the 13 EMA is normally really close to the 0 line, then it is complicated to see if it is positive or negative sometime and if it is far or not from 0.

I have the same indicator in ProRealTime, there you have the possibility of apply a "vertical displacement" to the EMA, I use 350% for example, then it is really easy to see if it is near 0 or not.

Do you know a way to do the same in this Script?

Thanks a lot!!!

Great stuff. I was thinking to write something similar, but that in a cumulative way, more like a mix between this and the OBV. Unfortunately my Pine knowledge is not developed enough yet to do this. If anybody knows if such a thing already exists, please let me know. And thanks for all the great indicators Harry :)
