Pivot Detector Oscillator, Simplified

Giorgos E. Siligardos's article, "Pivot Detector Oscillator, Simplified", introduces a simplified version of the pivot detector (Pid) oscillator to improve your timing by leaps and bounds.

Using Function Builder, one needs to create the PIDocs function; then, using Indicator Builder, one can quickly write the corresponding indicator and plot it on a price chart.

The following is the code for Mr. Siligardos's function and indicator which can help define oversold and overbought instances more precisely than RSI.

PIDocs Function:

function (Length:Numeric = 14):Numeric;

 sma200:= Mov(C,200,S);
 bull:= C>sma200;

 return iff(bull, (RSI(C,Length) - 35) / 
 (85 - 35), (RSI(C,Length) - 20) /
 (70 - 20)) * 100;

PIDocs Indicator:

return PIDocs(14);

For the creation of the PIDocs strategy, use Strategy Builder:

Entry Long Signal:

return CrossAbove(PIDocs(14),0);
Entry Short Signal:
return CrossAbove(PIDocs(14),100);
