TASC 2019-02 | The V-Trade Part 6 (Vervoort)


Traders' Tip text

The SVEStochRSI indicator created by Sylvain Vervoort is a price oscillator similar to StochRSI in its application and interpretation. Oscillating between 0 and 100, it becomes overbought after reaching 80 and oversold after dropping below 20. Author highlights its usage as a tool for confirming price reversals based on divergences between price and indicator.

The example WealthScript code can also be downloaded straight from Wealth-Lab ("Open Strategy", then "Download...") and includes a simple shorting Strategy which triggers and entry when the a) SVEStochRSI crosses under 70, and, b) price negatively diverges with the SVEStochRSI. A divergence detection routine focuses on the two indicator peaks just prior to the crossunder. The code compares the relative price peaks corresponding to the SVEStochRSI peak bars, and, if a negative divergence is detected the strategy draws in the divergence lines and initiates a short Position which is simply closed with a time-based exit.

After updating the TASCIndicators library to its latest version, the SVEStochRSI indicator can be found under the TASC Magazine Indicators group. You can plot it on a chart or use it as an entry or exit condition in a Rule-based Strategy without having to program a line of code yourself.
