TASC 2008-09 | The Midas Touch (Cole)


Traders' Tip text

We’ve added Midas to our collection of drag-and-drop indicators from TASC magazine (Fig. 1, inset). By including the starting bar number as a parameter, the indicator is fully programmable, and, our script demonstrates how a number of Midas curves can be effortlessly added to a chart for quick viewing. The script plots five Midas indicators for the most-recent 7% peaks and troughs.


Figure 1. The indicators were plotted automatically by programming a simple peak/trough search and using the bar number results to obtain a new Midas indicator.

Strategy Code

Note! Requires TASCIndicators 1.0.2 or greater.
