Finite Volume Elements (FVE) System by Markos Katsanos

Markos Katsanos' article "Detecting Breakouts" includes the MetaStock formula
for the finite volume elements (FVE) indicator. However, Katsanos lists six methods of detecting a divergence between the FVE and price. Three of those were formula-based. As no actual buy or sell signals were included, these are provided as indicators only.

The article also described a system test using the linear regression slope method. The coding for the test is different for MetaStock 8.0 than for earlier versions. MetaStock 8.0's formulas would be:

Finite Volume Elements (FVE) System - MS 8

pds:=22;
pds1:=35;
mf:=C-(H+L)/2+Typical()-Ref(Typical(),-1);
fve:=Sum(If(mf>0.3*C/100,+V, If(mf<-0.3*C/100, -V,0)),pds)/Mov(V,pds,S)/pds*100;
((If(LinRegSlope(fve,pds1)>0,1,-1)-
If(LinRegSlope(C,pds1)>0,1,-1))>0) and cross(fve,-5)

Sell Order

pds:=22;
pds1:=25;
mf:=C-(H+L)/2+Typical()-Ref(Typical(),-1);
fve:=Sum(If(mf>0.3*C/100,+V, If(mf<-0.3*C/100, -V,0)),pds)/Mov(V,pds,S)/pds*100;
LinRegSlope(fve,pds1)>0 OR
Simulation.CurrentPositionAge>=50

For all other versions of MetaStock, the formulas would be:
