Topic: Anchor Question
Posted: Tuesday, September 18, 2018 3:53:55 PM

Let's observe SPWR as an example.  On a Log Daily Chart, I've placed an Anchor drawing tool on the Gap Down on Fri 8/10/18--and a Horizontal Line at 9/14/19 High which could suggest a Long Entry.

When I change the chart from Log 6M to Arithmetic 1D, the same Anchor placed on the Log Daily Chart appears--but it appears at prices that don't match those on the Log Daily Chart.

Neither box is check on the Anchor drawing tool.

Can you please explain what happens to the Anchor when I switch from the Log Chart to an Arithmetic Chart?

I meant to say for CVNA "At the close today (Monday 9/10/18) % Change was 11.02%.

Another question about percentage change...

When I right click on a column tab, then select value, then select basic, and finally select "Today's %" what appears in the new column tab is named "% Change".

My understanding of "Today's %" which is also named "% Change" is the Price Percent Change from Yesterday's Close thru today's Open.

At the close today (Monday 9/10/18) % Change was 11.02%.

Unfortunately, when a TC subscriber clicks on % Change, the formula is hidden from the subscriber.

Now backing up to our previous posts, Bruce, you offered the following (bolded below):

If the basis was yesterday's close, then the second C would need to be C1 instead.

100 * (C - O) / C1

However, when I use this exact formula, the result was 9.79%.

I am seeking a formula that will duplicate Todays% called % Change on the tab.

I've not used Trend Stabity Factor Calculations before and am just wondering...

If I wanted a faster calculation speed than slow, let's say I changed the values to those below:

AVG(((((XAVGC34.0 - XAVGC34.1) / XAVGC34.1) * 100) * 5) + (((XAVGC21.0 - XAVGC21.1) / XAVGC21.1) * 100), 60)

Then would the bolded values of 5 and 60 remain the same or need to be changed. 

If they need to be changed, what is the logic behind the values one might choose?

Regarding your explanation of the second formula below:

((C - O) / C) * 100

Do you mean that kthis represents the percentage that price is above or below the open as a percentage of the previous day's close?

Each of the PCF Indicator formulas below typically provide slightly difference values (although ocassionally they are the same).

Can you tell me which formula based on Daily Candles is more accurate?

((C-O)/O)*100

or

100 * (1 - O/C)
