Does anyone know the full formula for the RSI (relative strength index)?,
I know that metastock just uses rsi(length), but I'm trying to take the rsi of another indicator, not the close.
I've looked in a few books but I don't know how to translate the formula into metastock language.
Omega Research lets you simply use RSI(x, length), where x can be anything, even other indicators.

Thanks,

Dennis,

The following is copied from Formula Field of my *RSI canonical_12_day_for_P_I indicator. Change m if you choose another # of periods n for rsi.

Vitaly

I wrote my own "canonical" RSI(12) which coinsides with MS's RSI(12) if m=2*n-1 where m is used below in Mov( ,m,E); n - a number of periods in rsi(n). Mind that since I didn't use those particular tricks from the standard rsi(n) to shorten the initial transitional period, this function and standard rsi(n) differ for about month or so from the day 1. It was not that important for me, so I used this shortcut.

RSI - Canonical

100 - 100/
(1.+ If(Mov(If(P-Ref(P,-1)<0,-(P-Ref(P,-1)),0),23,E)=0,1000000,

Mov(If(P-Ref(P,-1)>0, P-Ref(P,-1), 0),23,E) /
Mov(If(P-Ref(P,-1)<0,-(P-Ref(P,-1)),0),23,E)
))
