RS Line - Gauge Performance vs Index

This implementation of the RS Line mimics how Investor's Business Daily and CANSLIM investors measure growth stock performance versus the S&P 500 .

If you are looking at a weekly chart, the RS Line is the performance of the stock over the past week versus the S&P 500 over that same time frame. The same logic applies to the daily and monthly charts, only the time frames are different.

If a stock moves up for the day/week/month and the S&P 500 does not, the RS Line will move up. If a stock ends the day/week/month flat, yet the S&P 500 moves up, the RS Line will go down.

- Look for an upward sloping line.
- The steeper the line, the better.
- Can be used for viewing long-term trend.
Catatan Pelepasan: Colors for all of the RS Line variations can now be configured.
Catatan Pelepasan: Version updates:

✓ Support for any index, defaults to S&P 500 (SPX).
✓ Default plot color now shows on both dark and light modes.
Catatan Pelepasan: v4 version updates:

The max vertical offset on where to show the RS Line is now 200. This is necessary to accommodate scaling requirements for some indexes.
Catatan Pelepasan: v5 version updates:

One helpful tool when viewing an RS Line is to use a trendline, which can provide insight into the bigger picture performance of a stock versus the S&P 500. With this release of the RS Line you can now configure two trendlines that will be drawn for you, based on the criteria you specify.

The trendlines will be colored green or red based on the direction of the trend. You can also configure how far to look-back for each line, providing information for both short-term and long-term traders. For example, if you set a trendline look-back to 10, it will look back 10 days on a daily chart, 10 weeks on a weekly chart, etc

The configurable trendlines offer the following features:

■ Trendlines can be used on any timeframe
■ Trendlines are automatically colored based on the direction:
green for uptrend, red for downtrend
■ Plot up to two trendlines
■ Trendline width can be adjusted
■ Configurable look-back values

Two examples are shown below: APPL and CRSR

Catatan Pelepasan: v6 version updates:

The following new features have been added:

■ Draw most recent high based on your preferred look-back range
■ Set color preferences for RS Line

Historical research of past big winners has shown that an RS Line at a new high before the price reaches a new high, may proceed a significant move up. This bullish signal is now much easier to identify.

Example #1 - Microsoft in 1986

Over approximately 8 months, MSFT was up over 200% before a decisive close below the 50-day SMA.

Example #2 - OKTA in 2020

A more recent example is OKTA. In just 5 months there was a 50% move up before closing below the 50-day SMA.

John - thanks for this indicator and all the work you do on the other ones as well. I find them very helpful in my daily process. Would it be possible to add an additional EMA? I'd like to use the RSI crossback w/ short term EMAs in my process. I see it in the script but dont want to miss out on any future edits you make either! Thanks again.

Thank you for the coins! Are you referring to adding an additional moving average that is based on the RS Line versus using two moving averages based on OHLC?
John, first and foremost, I dont think thanking you is enough for making this indicator available in TV.

@muheeb26023, some suggestions and I am not sure if this is possible, but asking is half way to find out, :-) is it possible to show how many times the bubble showed up in lets say the past 30 days? or on a certain time interval?

I like the idea. Two thoughts come to mind:

- One challenge is that the "bubble" indicating a new high may show up multiple times during any interval. For example, when on a daily chart the bubble may be shown and if at some point during the day the price goes down so it is no longer a new high, the bubble will be hidden. If you are a MarketSmith user, the same concept applies there as well.

- What's the best way to indicate on the chart that a recent high has occurred on previous bars?

I'll give this some additional thought. Thanks for the suggestion.
