Rate of Change Candle Standardized (ROCCS)

ROCCS is a standardized rate of change oscillator with "error bars". Rate of change helps traders gauge momentum in a market by comparing the current price with the price "n" periods ago. What makes this special is you get to see the momentum of the momentum via the candle view. The candle transformation utilizes a moving average to smooth the signal however this is only used for the close price. The high and low prices are not smoothed. The moving average has an adjustable period, and so does the standardization.

I hope you can find great use in this upgraded roc indicator.
