The Rex oscillator measures market behavior based on the relationship of the close to the open, high and low values of the same bar. A big difference between the high and close on a bar indicates weakness, and wide disparity between the low and close indicates strength. The difference between open and close also indicates market performance.

The True Value of a Bar (TVB) gives an indication of how healthy the market is. A negative close and a positive TVB (or vice versa) is an indication of the market building strength on the opposing side of the trend. The Rex oscillator is a moving average (SMA, EMA, WMA or SMMA) of the TVB value with the specified period.


When the Rex Oscillator turns positive in a bearish trend, a reversal is indicated. Likewise, Rex turning negative in a bull market indicates a reversal to the downside.


The TVB is defined as:

TVB = (Close-Low) + (Close - Open) - (High - Close), or

= 3 * Close - (Low + Open + High)

Rex Oscillator (n periods) = moving average (n periods) of TVB
