Range Indicator (RIND)

Description

Jack Weinberg created the Range Indicator (RIND), which was first published in 1954. The RIND compares the intraday span (range) between the high and low to the span (range) between the current closing price and the closing price from the day before.

Interpretation

When the span between the current close and the previous day's close is bigger than the intraday span between high and low, the indicator will display a high value. This signals a potential trend change...

Usage

RIND(int periodQ, int smooth)
RIND(IDataSeries inSeries, int periodQ, int smooth)
RIND(int periodQ, int smooth)[int barsAgo]
RIND(IDataSeries inSeries, int periodQ, int smooth)[int barsAgo]

Return value

double

When using this method with an index (e.g. RIND(3,10)[int barsAgo] ), the value of the indicator will be issued for the referenced bar.

Parameters

inSeries Input data series for the indicator

periodQ Number of bars used for the short-term stochastic

smooth Number of bars used for smoothing the indicator (using an EMA)

Visualization

Example

//Output
Print("The current value for the PFE is: " + RIND(3, 10)[0]);
