Absolute Strength

Absolute Strength

The Absolute Strength indicator indicates the current market “strength” in two different ways possible:

  1. RSI Method
  2. Stochastic Method

and by separating the bulls and bears into 2 curves.

The results are then averaged with the same “length” as the one used for these 2 above methods and smoothed a second time using the “Smooth” variable. The moving average mode used is by default the Weighted one.

    Hi Nicolas,

    How do I incorporate this indicator into my strategy?
    I mean what do I call the indicator.

    trend = supertrend[7,3] //This is for Supertrend indicator
    Confirmations = Absolutestrength[??] //What do I add here to use it in the syntax


    • Nicolas • 01/16/2019 #

      Use the CALL function: https://www.prorealcode.com/documentation/call/
      or use the ‘fx’ button in the ProBacktest window to add it automatically in your program.

    How do I add Absolute Strength indicator into my chart

  5. Jo han • 01/16/2019 #

    I am trying to call Absolute Strength into ProScreener (PRT 11.1)
    But i do not get any results “matches” in my ProSreener Window.
    Works fine with other indicators. It’s like it not calling the indicator properly?

    Code in proscreener;

    ignored, ignored, indicator1, indicator2 = CALL “PRC_Absolute Strength”[0, 9, 1, 2](close)
    c1 = (indicator1 >= indicator2)

    SCREENER[c1] ((close/DClose(1)-1)*100 AS “%Chg yest.”)

    Best Regards,

    • Nicolas • 01/16/2019 #

      The moving average mode is not working in ProScreener, you have to change the code for the appropriate moving average type. By default it is set to Weighted Average, so you have to change all lines containing MODEMA with WeightedAverage, see https://www.prorealcode.com/documentation/weightedaverage/

    Thanks for the explanation!

    Tried to change ModeMA (4 rows at the bottom) with WeightedAverage[9](close)
    but get “A positive integer field is expected with average”

    //Nicolas @ http://www.prorealcode.com
    //Sharing ProRealTime knowledge

    // — settings
    //Mode =0 // 0-RSI method 1-Stoch method
    //Length = 9 // Period
    //Smooth = 1 // Period of smoothing
    //ModeMA = 2 // Mode of Moving Average
    // — end of settings

    if barindex>max(Length,Smooth) then

    if Mode=0 then
    if Mode=1 then
    Bulls=Price1 – smin
    Bears=smax – Price1

    // AvgBulls=average[Length,ModeMA](Bulls)





    RETURN SmthBulls coloured(0,0,255,50) style(histogram), SmthBears coloured(255,0,0,50) style(histogram) , SmthBears coloured(255,0,0) style(line,3), SmthBulls coloured(0,191,255) style(line,3)

    Also tried to replace the whole average line with

    // AvgBulls=average[Length,ModeMA](Bulls)




    Do not get any errors with this but it is still not working with proscreener
    Any pointers in the right direction (I’m really a beginner in programming)


    Best Regards,

    • Nicolas • 01/16/2019 #

      Please open a new topic with the code and an explanation, you have messed up the initial code 🙂

  7. Jo han • 01/16/2019 #

    Ok 🙂

    Are the Bulls Blue & the Bears Red?
