THANK YOU Yepher!!

TASC is "Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities". It is commonly found on the magazine rack of Borders and Barnes & Noble bookstores. However, it is probably hard to find the December issue now that January is out. Their website is

Sorry for the late reply I have been out of town for most of November and December. I will try and implement the featured indicator for January's TASC when I get home to read the magazine.


I saw in another thread you had asked about Metastock and Stockfetcher indicator. I use Metastock a lot and have made a document that shows the syntax relationship between both systems. I will try and pull it together into something that someone other than me can uderstand. I will post it when it is ready.

I tried to implement the break-out system from Jan TASC but I could not get it to work in SF. The issues I ran into are SF does not already have an FVE indicator and SF also does not support finding the Standard Deviation of a set of values.

Both of the problems are easy to solve by calculating them manually but the "set{...}" command does not allow you to nest very far.

Here is the link to the FVE article for those of you who subscribe to TASC:

and the Volatility-modified finite volume element (FVE) indicator formula:

PERIOD:= Input("PERIOD FOR FVE",5,80,22);
COEF:=Input("COEF FOR CUTOFF",0,2,.1);
FVE:=Sum(If(MF>CUTOFF, +V, If(MF <-CUTOFF, -V,0)),


Here is the link to TTF in TASC:

I really appreciate your effort. I use your site almost every day, btw. I would really like to emulate the zigzag, peak and trough functions in Metastock. If you have tackled that, I would really appreciate it, since that comprises a large part of my real life trading system.

I really like to buy on market structure, buying when the price exceeds the last peak - selling on the opposite condition. In real life I define a peak as a high bar preceded by two lower highs, and followed by two lower highs.

Metastock allows me to use the peak function, which isn't quite the same, but works for me. I set it at 1%, and that gives me pretty good peaks for what I trade.

Thanks for your help,
