What is the purpose of this indicator?
This indicator shows how the price changes for each bar at different time frames we have chosen. By examining the percentage change in different time periods, we can easily look at the change in the face of the market during the time interval. Also if the price is above or below the value of 0 during the specified time, the color of our percentage line changes.
- IMPLEMENTATION DETAILS:
The difference between the old and new value of a quantity given in percentages is known as a percent change. It's rather simple to calculate the % difference between two given quantities.
The formula is given by;
The price of a kilo of rice went from 10$ to12.5$, what is the percentage change?
• The old value of sugar = $ 10
• New value = $12.5
• Now apply the percent change formula;
• Percentage change = ×100%
= x 100%
= (2.5/10) x 100%
In this case, the percent change is positive and therefore, it is an increase.
