public static TRIX Series(DataSeries source, int period)
public TRIX(DataSeries source, int period, string description)

Parameter Description

source The source DataSeries
period Indicator calculation period


TRIX displays the percentage Rate of Change, ROC, of a triple exponentially-smoothed moving average, EMA, over the specified Period. TRIX oscillates above and below the zero value. The indicator applies triple smoothing in an attempt to eliminate insignificant price movements within the trend that you're trying to isolate.


TRIX generates a signal when it changes direction (turns up or down). Alternately, you can create a signal line using a moving average and wait until TRIX crosses this signal line.
