Fixed Reference Relative Strength

Relative Strength based on a fixed reference session date. This study works on day timeframe only.
The idea here is to "fix" a reference trading session day. The relative strength of subsequent candles are measured based on this reference day only. Relative strengths of bars before this bar is irrelevant and not plotted. As the plotting of the bars advances, the length is automatically adjusted so that the base reference is the "fixed" reference only. The RS value is multiplied by 100 to give a percentage value.

The other Relative Strength indicators that I have published (and other Relative Strength scripts generally available on TradingView), generally take a fixed length as input and that has to be advanced each trading session. What this results into is that only the "latest bar" RS is compared to the "reference" session date. All the RS values prior to this latest bar is actually compared to days previous to the reference date.

In the example above, we have input 13-Feb-2020 as the "fixed" reference trading session day. Starting from 14-Feb-2020, each session day, we calculate the RS always with respect to 13-Feb-2020, unlike the other scripts. When the RS value of today, 08-Sep-2020 is being calculated, it is using 13-Feb-2020 (as the other scripts do when the length is advanced one day each trading session day). However, when the RS value of 07-Sep-2020 is being calculated today (08-Sep-2020), it is still using 13-Feb-2020 as the reference. In the other scripts, a calculation of RS for 07-Sep-2020 on 08-Sep-2020 would have taken 12-Feb-2020 as the reference value.

This plot thus gives the exact performance of the script with respect to the benchmark index from the fixed reference each day. A performance trend is therefore possible to do on this plot.
Release Notes:
  • Added static reference plot
  • Changed name to include static reference
  • Changed the default Adaptive Reference Date
  • Added capability to mark an ARS Threshold value breakout

The basic model of this indicator now changes from calculating the adaptive relative strength to also include a static, "fixed length" relative strength. So from now it is possible to plot both of them simultaneously.
It is also possible to define an ARS threshold value, that will be marked separately (in a different colour) to show the breakout (Current ARS >= the ARS Threshold Level)
The short name as well as the long name of the indicator is changed to reflect the "dual" nature of the plots now.
Release Notes:
  • Added horizontal line for ARS threshold
  • Removed MA option
Release Notes:
  • Added time input for ARS date instead of text boxes
Automatically fixes the max_bars lookback error.
Release Notes:
  • Changed default ARS date
Release Notes:
  • Change default reference date (aka ARS Date)
  • Current CRS color to purple
Release Notes:
  • Color toggles based on zero line crossover and crossunder
Release Notes:
  • New ARS Date - 16 - Feb - 2021
Release Notes:
  • Changed default ARS Date
New ARS Date: 18th May 2021
Release Notes:
  • New ARS - 3rd Aug 2021
Release Notes:
  • New ARS - 18th Oct 2021
Release Notes:
  • Change ARS Date to 7th March 2022
