Trix


Summary

TRIX was developed by Jack Huton. It is a momentum oscillator that will help you filter unimportant price movement.

Remarks

When TRIX is rising, it is a good signal to buy, whether when TRIX is falling, it is a good signal to sell.

Result PropertyGets the resulting time series of the Trix indicator calculation.

Example 1

private Trix _result;
protected override void Initialize()
{
    _result = Indicators.Trix(MarketSeries.Close, 14);
}
public override void Calculate(int index)
{
    double result = _result.Result[index];
}
