public static VMMinus Series(Bars bars, int period)

Parameter Description

Bars The symbol's Bars object
period The lookback period


The VMPlus and VMMinus indicators were introduced in the January 2010 issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine. Similar to directional movement (DX, DIPlus, DIMinus) in function and construction, VMPlus and VMMinus are a pair of divergent indicators and their crossing points represent changes in trend.


When VM+ is above VM-, the market is trending up and vice-versa. The authors claim that you can use the Vortex Indicators to identify a trend's "start, existence, or trend continuation" in any market."
