RocketRSI by John Ehlers

RocketRSI by John Ehlers

In “RocketRSI—A Solid Propellant For Your Rocket Science Trading” in the may 2018 issue of Traders tips, author John Ehlers introduces a new take on the classic RSI indicator originally developed by J. Welles Wilder. Ehlers begins by introducing a new version of the RSI based on a simple accumulation of up and down closes rather than averages. To this he applies a Fisher transform. He tells us that the resultant output is statistically significant spikes that indicate cyclic turning points with precision.

    Cheers for doing Ehler’s latest indicator Despair, much appreciated.

    Hi, thanks for proving this code.
    I would like to contribute by adding a computation speedup. figures are unchanged, the indicator computes 5x faster.

    //Compute Super Smoother coefficients once
    if barindex = 1 then
    a1 = exp( -1.414 * 3.14159/ ( SmoothLength ) )
    b1 = 2 * a1 * Cos( 1.414 * 180/ ( SmoothLength ) )
    c2 = b1
    c3 = -square(a1)
    c1 = 1 – c2 – c3

    drawhline (0)
    drawhline (OBOSLevel) coloured(255,0,0)
    drawhline (-OBOSLevel) coloured(255,0,0)

    if barindex > RSILength then
    //Create half dominant cycle Momentum
    Mom = Close – Close[RSILength – 1]

    //SuperSmoother Filter
    Filt = c1 * ( Mom + Mom[1] ) / 2 + c2 * Filt[1] + c3 * Filt[2]

    //Accumulate “Closes Up” and “Closes Down”
    CD = 0
    CU = 0

    if Filt[0] > Filt[1] then
    CU = Filt[0] – Filt[1]
    CD = Filt[1] – Filt[0]

    RCU = summation[RSILength](CU)
    RCD = summation[RSILength](CD)

    if RCU + RCD 0 then
    MyRSI = ( RCU – RCD ) / ( RCU + RCD )

    //Limit RocketRSI output to
    //+/- 3 Standard Deviations
    MyRSI = min(max(MyRSI,-.999),.999)

    //Apply Fisher Transform to establish
    //Gaussian Probability Distribution
    RocketRSI = .5 * Log( ( 1 + MyRSI ) / ( 1 – MyRSI ) )

    return RocketRSI coloured(0,0,255) as “RocketRSI”
