There are all these different versions of volume. ie. vol(90), vol(10), Vol(30) etc.. What will all these different versions give me that volume(90) wont?.

The same thing with rsi, I hear a lot about rsi(2) . I use it . I like it.I saw another post where the fellow says he uses rsi(10) to enter a trade. What kind of edge does rsi(!0) give him that the other versions of rsi wont?
How can I learn more about these 2 indicators in this regard?. I have a big problem tring to download sf user guide. I dont have excel or what ever it takes to do it.. Are there any books on this subject?

ZUBER, in a post (9-16-03) Has a momentum filter: "rsi(15) is above 80 and rsi(15) is below 95 and price is between $2 and $15 and average volume(10) is above 100000"

Then he explains: "...wanted to screen out one day wonders so keep rsi below 95. Also, dont want to eliminate stocks that trade below 100000k shares ADV (does this mean "average day volume"?) but now are getting institutional support, so went to a short ADV parameter".

Is he saying in effect that by choosing an average vol of (10) rather than (90), (60), or (30) etc.

. that he can go deeper? Is it the lower the parameter number (?) the more sensitive or what?
any help with these questions will be very appreciated
I assure you. Thanks folks

p.s. what dose LOL stand for?

Here are two very good sites to learn about indicators and chart reading...

As to your question what you assumed is correct. The Parameter on these indicators is the "Look Back Period" and therefore the shorter LBP the more sensitive it would be to immediate market conditions. The trick is to find the LBP that is balanced; so as to be useful to your trading style and not be over sensitive. Hope this helps.

William Oneal uses RSI and his own proprietery rating system that is very useful.
He has a book well worth reading called, 'How To Make Money In Stocks'.

Most indicators are a mathematical "reflection" of what's happened to the stock (security) in the recent past. The "lookback" period is the number of periods
(ie. days) that the mathematical computation reflects upon. So a moving average of the volume for 90 days -avgVol(90)-, for example, has a "lookback" of 90 days or what ever time frame you are working with.

My suggestion is to go to the sites I listed above, and start with a simple moving average to initiate yourself to the basic concept of indicators. If you do have more questions after doing some diligent studying, post them and you'll find most people on this site will be willing to help.

Another "web speak" you may see a lot on stock sites:

YMMV - Your Milage May Vary (meaning "you'll probably get different results"). I always add it as a "disclaimer", so someone reading my post can't "blame" me if what I say doesn't work for them (although they often do <g>)...



(That's Hope This Helps)
