# Premier Stochastic Oscillator

any help getting pso... its calculated as below.

%K = 100 X [(C – Ln) / (Hn – Ln)]

Where

• C = the most recent closing price
• n = the lookback period
• Ln = the low of the n previous price bars
• Hn = the highest price during the same n period

The premier stochastic oscillator normalizes the standard stochastic oscillator by applying a five-period double exponential smoothing average of the %K value, resulting in a symmetric scale of 1 to -1. The PSO calculation, then, is:

PSO = (exponential value (S) – 1) / (exponential value (S) + 1)

Where

• S = 5-period double smoothed exponential EMA ((%K – 50) * .1)
• %K = 8-period stochastic oscillator

This one ?

@manishji The study was provided. Besides I do not see any particular advantage. The stochastic values can be changed to give what I believe are better signals than the Premier Stochastic. Try playing with stochastic and see what you can get.

Example of Premier vs stochastic with changed values.

@horserider anyway of knowing the the exactly what exponential value is, thanks

This is the Premier Stochastics from the Stocks & Commodities August 6th 2008 By Lee Leibfarth, Does anyone you know exactly what exponential value is?

Do you know exactly what exponential value is? for the above premier stochastic. I think it’s the 3 in the code could someone confirm.

Here are the exponential calculations ;
def SmoothStoch = ExpAverage( ExpAverage( NormStoch, Length ), Length );
plot Premier = ( Exp( 1 * SmoothStoch ) - 1 ) / ( Exp( 1 * SmoothStoch ) + 1 );

I believe 3 is on of the stochastic lengths. Not sure, did not write it and do not use it.

Thanks for taking the time. Was wondering if you could turn the Premier line into a histogram thats green above .2 and red below.2? thanks have a great weekend

Ok Color coded line or remove the comment from front of this line of code if you prefer a histogram display.

what do you use for bar color?

I have the code up but not sure what you mean remove the comment #Premier.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM);, not code savy so not sure what to do

btw, a Comment is the pound sign # , just remove the sign from the line that was suggested. https://tlc.thinkorswim.com/center/reference/thinkScript.html

what do you use for bar color?
Good question. I did that chart just to display the stochastic comparison. Erased after. Just looking at it looks like RSI colored candles.

Did you know you can also go into study settings and change "line" to "histogram.

Did you know you can also go into study settings and change "line" to "histogram
OK I went in and I tried to change "Line" to Histogram several times, I looked in TOS trying to find this small error and couldn't figure it out, i only spent the time on these two lines of code line 64 and 65, i tried a bunch of different ways, i looked at Constant and paint strategy and histogram area i see how it works but my adjustment of this is wrong
#Premier.SetPaintingStrategy PaintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM
Premier.SetLineWeight(3);
What line of code do I change "Line" from and add in "Histogram" ...Thanks

Click on Studies. Click on GEAR icon on far right of the study of interest. Click on DRAW AS. Click on HISTOGRAM looking on.
APPLY

or

In the code;
#Premier.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM);
Change to;
Premier.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM);

So, Change to; was this missing piece I wasn’t even close into figuring that out.. thanks for helping me learn

I'm a two time frame trader, small-time and larger, its the only way thats comfortable for entries, my next step is how can I turn this into a MTF to use it on a higher time frame and a smaller, is it hard adding aggregations to this code or in general, it would be cool to understand or see how hard the process is, let me know and once again thanks for your help its much appreciated

Not hard once you understand the concept. Look in the thinkscript manual.
