trix 2 line

Postby ph7 » Tue Jul 25, 2006 5:10 pm

hello everyone,
I found this trix 2 line very helpful. thanks TRO. I have a newb question. is it possible to do something similar to the Williams % R indicator? what I mean is to smooth it out like that. maybe it's already been done but I can't find any reference to it. any help will be greatly appreciated. btw, great forum! good trading...

Yes, you could use the code and put the Williams %R in there.

Please do NOT PM me with trading or coding questions, post them in a thread.

Thanks,

How does one use this thing? Looking at the above picture, doesn't seem to be doing anything? Is it better on other timeframes? What timeframes do people use it on it? How are you using it...anybody???

Trix is a triple smoothed exponential moving average "TRIX". When you have a signal included with it, you look for trade opportunities when they cross.

It is good for eliminating whipsaws and doesn't have too much lag.
