The linear regression intercept is used to calculate the linear regression slope but does not seem to be available as a separate indicator. Am I missing something? Any idea how to calculate it?

We recently added the linear regression slope. This measure compute the slope of the linear regression line for the given number of days. Below are some examples:

Fetcher[linear regression(10) slope reached a new 6 month high]

Fetcher[linear regression(10) slope crossed below 0 within the last 1 day]

Does this help?

The linear legression intercept is not used to calculate slope. Slope is rise over run - that's all. In the case of the linear regression line, it is a best fit linear interpolation of the data where the sum of the squares of the error is minimized.

Wht would the intercept be of value in trading?

kevin_in_ga the description says "The linear regression slope indicator simply computes the slope of the linear regression line. " so one would think the linear regression intercept is available. I know the definition of slope, in this case it's the "rise over run" of the linear regression line. My question was, is the linear regression line available by itself? That would give you the intercept.

I agree with Kevin. Why would anyone care about the intercepts for trading? All they tell you is where the line crosses the x or y axis

Well, not Linear Regression Slope....but I did Slope Angle in Degrees (short-term) for my DSP filter about 3 years ago. Easy to think about slope in terms of angle degrees when looking at just a number. You might find it amusing at least for applying trig to stocks :-)

Fetcher[close above 5
volume above 10000000

set{originxy, open 4 days ago}
set{adjacent, originxy * 0.0378}
set{opposite_vector, close - originxy}
set{radians, opposite_vector / adjacent}
set{atanval, atan(radians)}
set{hcircle, 180 / 3.14159}
set{angledeg, atanval * hcircle}

set{zenith90, 90}
set{nadir90, -90}
set{zero, 0}

and draw 5 day slope of open
and draw 5 day slope of close

and draw angledeg
and draw zenith90 on plot angledeg
and draw zero on plot angledeg
and draw nadir90 on plot angledeg

add column angledeg

and chart-length is 6 months

Sort column 5 descending

Sorry for the nubie question but what setting puts the statistics above all the charts like the above. My charts come up individually with the stats above each chart. Thanks
