Ultimate Strength Differential SE


This is the STANDARD EDITION of the ULTIMATE STRENGTH DIFFERENTIAL series. The indicator graphically shows the STRENGTH/WEAKNESS of the BASE currency relative to the QUOTE currency on any chart it is placed. It is an RSI based indicator that is backed by solid mathematical and statistical computation involving a robust method of determining statistical median of a sample The strength of each currency is calculated across all the pairs in its matrix. Depending on the chart it is placed on, data from more than 14 currency pairs is therefore employed in determining the STRENGTH/WEAKNESS of the BASE currency relative to the QUOTE currency.

We often forget that FOREX market works by forecasting the strength or weakness of a currency against another currency but this indicator would remind us of that. It will amaze you how this indicator clearly presents the STRENGTH/WEAKNESS of the BASE currency relative to the QUOTE currency.
