Hi,

I have a PCF which shows stocks that closed above a 10,8 upper Bollinger Band today: C > AVGC10 + .8 * SQR(ABS(C ^ 2 + C1 ^ 2 + C2 ^ 2 + C3 ^ 2 + C4 ^ 2 + C5 ^ 2 + C6 ^ 2 + C7 ^ 2 + C8 ^ 2 + C9 ^ 2 - 10 * AVGC10 ^ 2) / 9) 

How would I modify this to show stocks that closed below the 10,8 upper Bollinger Bands yesterday?

Then I have a PCF which shows stocks that closed below a 10,8 lower Bollinger Band today: C < AVGC10 - .8 * SQR(ABS(C ^ 2 + C1 ^ 2 + C2 ^ 2 + C3 ^ 2 + C4 ^ 2 + C5 ^ 2 + C6 ^ 2 + C7 ^ 2 + C8 ^ 2 + C9 ^ 2 - 10 * AVGC10 ^ 2) / 9) 

How would I modify this to show stocks that closed above the 10,8 lower Bollinger Band yesterday?

thanks,

George Kern
Topic: how to get a numeric value from PCF instead of 'true'
Posted: Thursday, April 24, 2008 12:48:00 PM
I want to sort a watch list by volume surge today. The formula 100 * V / AVGV100 returns a numeric value, but it mixes red and green volume days. I want to separate the formula: one  for  price up volume and another one for price down volume. But the formula I came up with does not return numeric values anymore, just 'true'. I want to get the same numeric results as in the basic formula.

Hi,
I have a PCF for 'volume surge up today': 100 * V / AVGV100 AND C > O AND C > C1
I have it on a tab, and it returns 'true' if applicable. How can I change the PCF so that it returns and sorts by a numeric value instead of 'true'?

thanks,

thanks, it works great. One more question: Larry Williams suggests to construct a 14 period stochastic of his VIX FIX indicator. How would I do that?

I had previously written this formula  ((MAXC22 - L)  /  MAX C22) * 100 , but when I tested it, I got the error message 'missing argument'. What did I do wrong?

Hi, I read an article by Larry Williams about constructing a synthetic vix indicator. He gives the formula and instructions. Can you help by writing a PCF that I can use to create a custom indicator?
thanks, George Kern

WVF (Williams Vix Fix) = (Highest (Close,22)

- Low)/(Highest(Close,22))*100

This means you find the highest close

of the past 22 bars and then subtract the

low of the current bar from this price.

The result is divided by the highest close

of the last 22 bars. Finally, the result is

multiplied by 100 to normalize the indicator

readings.

thanks, that will work. Do you happen to know if the ETNs trade just like ETFs, i.e. can be bought and sold anytime?
