The Midas indicators from the September 2008 issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine. Midas is the cumulative Price * Volume (PV) minus the cumulative PV from the startBar divided by the cumulative Volume minus the cumulative Volume from the startBar. The articles author, Andrew Coles, PhD., claims that "the MIDAS algorithm locates the real underlying order of markets — the fractally ordered hierarchical levels of support and resistance — at the volume-weighted average price taken over an interval subsequent to a reversal in trend."
