Midas Indicator

RSS

Syntax

public Midas(Bars ds, int startBar, string description)
public static Midas Series(Bars ds, int startBar)

Parameter Description

ds The symbol's Bars object
startBar The bar number at which Midas should start; generally a peak or trough.

Description

The Midas indicators from the September 2008 issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine. Midas is the cumulative Price * Volume (PV) minus the cumulative PV from the startBar divided by the cumulative Volume minus the cumulative Volume from the startBar. The articles author, Andrew Coles, PhD., claims that "the MIDAS algorithm locates the real underlying order of markets — the fractally ordered hierarchical levels of support and resistance — at the volume-weighted average price taken over an interval subsequent to a reversal in trend."
