Making The Most Of A Trend With The Disparity Index

In his article ďMaking The Most Of A Trend With The Disparity IndexĒ, Dan Valcu has analyzed volatile markets where the formation of peaks and troughs is difficult to forecast. The disparity index is an indicator that should help to squeeze the best out of a trend whether you are trading equities, futures, or Forex.

Using Function Builder, one needs to create the Disparity function:

Disparity function:

function (Price:Numeric=Close, N:Numeric=10, 
Method:Numeric = E):Numeric;

Disparity:= 100*(Price -  MOV(Price,N,Method))/Price;

return Disparity;

Also, one needs to create the Disparity indicator using Tradecisionís Indicator Builder:

Disparity indicator:

 Price:"Enter the price:", Close;
 Length:"Enter the Length:", 20;
 Method:"Enter the Moving Average Method:", E;

return Disparity(Price,Length,Method);

In NeatScan market scanner, one needs to create the DIX scan with the following code:

return true;

Then one needs to add three custom columns to the scan to display the indicator reading for three different average smoothing lengths:

Column DIX(20):

 nper1 := 20;
 dix20:= 0;


return dix20;

Column DIX(50):

 nper1 := 50;
 dix50:= 0;


return dix50;

Column DIX(200):

 nper1 := 200;
 dix200:= 0;


return dix200;
