ECO - R Krauz

The Robert Krauz article I read described the ECO as "a double smoothed ratio of the difference between the close(C) and open(O) of each bar, and the difference between the high(H) and low(L) prices for each bar" originally created by William Blau.

FWI my interpretation is:

{ECO[Ergodic Candlestick Oscillator]}
(MOV(MOV(C-O,5,E))26,E)/MOV(MOV(H-L,5,E))26,E))*100

Elliot Wave Identification

As far as using MetaStock for identifying waves, use a 5/34 histogram for
finding wave 4, the end of wave 3 and for help with identifying wave 1/2,
which apparently Advanced Get uses extensively. You can write MetaStock
explorations/templates/experts, etc., with this indicator; e.g.,
explorations to find the peaks and troughs of the 5/34 histogram.

The version of the indicator I use in MetaStock v6.52 is:

Mov(OscP(5,34,E,$),5,S)

-150 days minimum of data.

The peaks of the histogram help identify waves 1, 3 and 5 and troughs for
waves 2 and 4. Use MetaStock line studies (both trendlines, channels and
fib retracements) for additional wave identification/analysis. Of course,
you can label the waves with the text box.

EMA Cross System

avoid using when the market has no clear direction --
enter long
mov(c,5,e)>mov(c,21,e) and
ref(mov(c,5,e),-1)<=ref(mov(c,21,e),-1)
exit long
mov(c,5,e)<mov(c,21,e) and
ref(mov(c,5,e),-1)>=ref(mov(c,21,e),-1)

End Point Moving Average

{The End Point Moving Average was introduced in the October 95 issue of
Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities in the article "The End Point
Moving Average", by Patrick E. Lafferty. The exact formula for the End Point
Moving average is as follows:}

( 14 * Sum( Cum( 1 ) * C,14 ) - Sum( Cum( 1 ),14) * Sum( C,14) ) / (14
* Sum( Pwr( Cum( 1 ),2),14 ) - Pwr( Sum( Cum( 1 ),14 ),2 ) ) * Cum( 1 )
+ (Mov(C,14,S) - Mov( Cum( 1 ),14,S) * (14 * Sum( Cum( 1 ) * C,14) -
Sum( Cum( 1 ),14 ) * Sum( C,14) ) / (14 * Sum( Pwr( Cum( 1 ),2 ),14) -
Pwr( Sum( Cum( 1 ),14 ),2 ) ) )

{The above formula plots the last value of a linear regression line of the
previous 14 periods. The Time Series Forecast (TSF) takes this value and the
slope of the regression line to forecast the next day and then plots this
forecasted price as today's value. from Equis.}

Enter 20 Days after MOV Signal

I am trying to use the MetaStock Explorer to find all stocks with the following:

1. c - mov(c,60,s)<0
2. Above condition should be in place for 20 days/

I use c - Mov(c,60,s)<0 but how do I write the Exploration?

from wsb


Use (C - Mov(C,60,S))<0 AND Ref((C - Mov(C,60,S))<0),-1) AND ... Ref((C -Mov(C,60,S))<0),-19)

where ... stands for all Ref( x,-i) with i between 2 and 18.

Equivalent to Wilders TR

Excel Confidence %

This is the calculation:

Take todays volume * 50 and find the square root of that number. Then divide 2.5 by your result. Then take the result of dividing by 2.5 and * todays close. Write this figure down.
Then plot a 10 day moving average of this figure. This is the fundamental calculation which we shall call a.

Take the value for a and take it away from the lowest value of itself over the past 5 days. Add up these results for the past 3 days. This number is called b.

Now take the highest value for a over the past 5 days and subtract the lowest value for a, also over the past 5 days. Call this number c.

Finally, divide b by c and multiply the answer by 100. (phew!)

Simple Interpretation:
Excel Confidence % should oscillate between 0 and 100, usually at the extreme ends of the scale. A value of 0 indicates no confidence in the market going up, whilst 100 indicates perfect confidence in the market going up. Although this obviously isn't the holy grail of indicators, it does offer some insight into what the market is thinking and how one can measure investor sentiment.
You might like to add a slower version of this (just increase the 3 day and 5 day calculations to something you believe to be appropriate - try 7 & 15) and trade the crossovers, as with stochastics.
You can also just trade the values ie 90 or higher, buy, 10 or lower, sell.

Metastock code for Excel Confidence %:

(Sum(
Mov(C * (2.5/ Sqrt(50 * V)),10,S)-
LLV(Mov(C * (2.5/ Sqrt(50 * V)),10,S),5), 3 ) /
Sum(
HHV(Mov(C * (2.5/ Sqrt(50 * V)),10,S),5) -
LLV(Mov(C * (2.5/ Sqrt(50 * V)),10,S),5), 3) ) * 100

Experimental Williams Trading System

A trading system based on work of Bill Williams

Enter Long:
Cross(C,Fml("chaos green bl")) AND Fml("chaos green bl") > Fml("chaos blue bl")
Close Long:
Cross(Fml("chaos green bl"),C) AND Fml("chaos blue bl") > Fml("chaos green bl")

I tested this on several different stocks and it shows potential. I really
haven't spent too much time on it yet so I'm not yet sure of the
significance of the other indicators. The above was just what I could throw together based upon what my eyes on the chart with the indicators showed me.

End Points of a Linear Regression with Standard Deviations

In MetaStock 5.x for Windows there is a way to plot the end points of a linear regression line
with channels +/- 2 Standard Deviations.

Here are the three formulas:

*Linear Regression (14):
(14 * Sum(Cum(1) * C,14) - Sum(Cum(1),14)* Sum(C,14)) /(14 * Sum(Pwr(Cum(1),2),14)
- Pwr(Sum(Cum(1),14),2)) * Cum(1) + (Mov(C,14,S) - Mov(Cum(1),14,S) * (14 *
Sum(Cum(1) * C,14) - Sum(Cum(1),14) * Sum(C,14))/(14 * Sum(Pwr(Cum(1),2),14)
- Pwr(Sum(Cum(1),14),2)))

*Linear Regression Lower Band:
Fml( "*Linear Regression (14)" ) - 2* Stdev( Fml( "*Linear Regression (14)" ) ,14)

*Linear Regression Upper:
Fml( "*Linear Regression (14)" ) + 2* Stdev( Fml( "*Linear Regression (14)" ) ,14)
