Rapid RSI Indicator, from Ian Copsey's article in the October 2006 issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine.

RapidRSI resembles Wilder's RSI, but uses a SMA instead of a WilderMA for internal smoothing of price change accumulators.


Rapid RSI = 100 - ( 100 / ( 1 - RS ) )
where RS = sum of up closes divided by the sum of down closes over the specified period.
