Relative Strength Index is a momentum oscillator developed by J. Wilder. The original version of RSI rescaled the relative strength measurement to range. While the rescaling is useful for readability, This non-rescaled version tells the exact average relative strength of the movement for the past period, and give another way to put the relative strength reading into context of current market condition.
█ Description & How To Use
1. The (+/-) in relative strength value indicates the direction
Example 1: Relative Strength of 2.33 means average gain is 2.33 bigger than average loss for the past period (Equivalent to RSI 70)
Example 2: Relative Strength of -2.33 means average loss is 2.33 bigger than average gain for the past period (Equivalent to RSI 30)
Example 3: Relative Strength of 0 means average gain is equal to average loss for the past period (Equivalent to RSI 50)
Look at comparison below:
2. You can use it exactly how you would use RSI: Overbought/Oversold state, Divergence, Trend identification, Failure Swings etc..
- Overbought/Oversold line still maintainable as standard RSI level (70,30) in user input screen. The script will recalculate and plot the ob/os level accordingly
- Value Label to indicate the RSI and RS value
- Custom Gradient Color Scheme
The Relative Strength absolute value is capped at 20 to avoid ratio value too big(or too small). This is enough to get accurate equivalent of RSI reading between 5-95
