Would you have this as a shared file?
 
@AnimalMother
and what advantage do i have using this rather than the old rsi 14?
Recommend you put it on your chart. Nothing beats personal experience ;) The only way you will know what works best for you is to play with the settings and see how the indicator compares to the "old rsi 14" and with your other indicators. To determine if this indicator brings value, analyze it over different timeframes, across history and with multiple instruments.
