I am a big fan of Constance Brown. Her book "Technical Analysis for Trading Professionals" is an absolute classic (get the 2nd edition).

I have included here 2 of the indicators she uses in all her charts.

Composite Index
----------------------------------------
This is a formula Ms Brown developed (Cardwell may not agree!) to identify divergence failures with in the RSI . This also highlights the horizontal support levels with in the indicator area.

This index removes the normalization range restrictions in RSI . This means it is not bound with in 0-100 range. Also, this has embedded momentum calculation in it.

The fine nuances of this indicator are not documented well enough, if you find some good documentation, do let me know. Always use this with RSI (like the next one).

RSI+Avgs
----------------------------------------
This is plain 14 period RSI with a 9-period EMA and 45-period SMA overlaid.

Hi there, are you aware of the fact that Andrew Cardwell copywrited this indicator a long time ago?

Thank you for sharing this. Is this a ThinkScript for TOS? I doesn't seem to work in TOS.

I wanted to test these indicators but I cant see the "Make It Mine" button. Anyone knows why? What am I missing?

Sir, could u please do similar work of overlaying EMA9 and SMA 26 on a Ultimate oscillator. I m not a programmer. Thanks

It may be because I'm just too tired, but I'm not finding the code of the RSI w/MAs... I copied and pasted the Composite code, and it works fine, but where is the RSI w/MAs code? Sorry if I'm being dense...

Use this guide to import / use RSI+MAs. Note that this PDF shows the old UI, the "Share" button is the last button on the left side in the current UI.
