 # Sell Relative Strength Index (sRSI) Indicator for ThinkorSwim

I'm trying to convert a Tradestation ELS into Thinkscript. Here is the Tradestation code:

Rich (BB code):
``````inputs:
Length(20);

vars:
srsi(0),
srsin(0),
k(0);

srsin = 0;
For k = 0 to Length - 1
Begin
Value1 = absvalue(close[k] - open[k];
Value2 = absvalue(high[k] - low[k];
If value2 = 0 then value3 = 0
Else
Value3 = value1/value2;
srsin = srsin + value3;
End;

srsi = srsin/length;

plot1(0.38);
plot2(srsi);
plot3(-0.38);
plot4(0);
If srsi > 0 then Setplotcolor(2,green);
If srsi < 0 then Setplotcolor(2,red);
If srsi >= -0.05 and srsi <= 0.05 then Setplotcolor(2,yellow);

Setplotcolor(1,darkred);
Setplotcolor(3,darkgreen);
Setplotcolor(4,yellow);``````

Here is my attempt at converting it to Thinkscript:

Rich (BB code):
``````declare lower;

input Length = 20;

def srsi = 0;
def srsin = 0;
def k = 0;

plot iteration = fold k = 0 to Length - 1;

def Value1 = absvalue(close[k] - open[k]);
def Value2 = absvalue(high[k] - low[k]);
def Value = if value2 == 0 then value3 == 0 else value3 == value1 / value2;

def srsin = srsin + value3;

def srsi = srsin / Length;

plot line1 = 0.38;
line1.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_RED);
line1.HideTitle();
line1.HideBubble();

plot line2 = srsi;
line2.AssignValueColor(if srsi > 0 then Color.GREEN
else if srsi < 0 then Color.RED
else if srsi >= -0.05 and srsi <= 0.05 then Color.YELLOW
else Color.GRAY);
line2.SetLineWeight(2);
line2.HideTitle();

plot line3 = -0.38;
line3.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_GREEN);
line3.HideTitle();
line3.HideBubble();

plot ZeroLine = 0;
ZeroLine.SetDefaultColor(Color.ORANGE);
ZeroLine.HideTitle();
ZeroLine.HideBubble();``````

The Thinkscript compiler says the fold statement is invalid. This is the first time I've attempted to work with a fold statement.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance...

##### Well-known member Success! For those of you whom might be interested in taking the converted code for a test drive:

Rich (BB code):
``````declare lower;

input len = 7; #changed from the setting of 20 per the instructions of the original author

def srsin;
def value1 = close - open;
def value2 = high - low;
def value3 = if value2 == 0 then 0
else value1 / value2;

srsin = Sum(value3, len);

plot srsi = srsin / len;
srsi.assignValueColor(if srsi > 0.05 then Color.GREEN
else if srsi<-0.05 then color.red
else color.yellow);

plot l1 = 0.38 ;
l1.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_RED);

plot l2 = -0.38;
l2.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_GREEN);

plot zline = 0;
zline.SetDefaultColor(Color.ORANGE);``````

@netarchitech What is this indicator called? I'll help you change the title and move it into the proper category?

Are you referring to the sRSI being shared in this post? It's right above.

Hello,

I am trying to piece together a study that shows the avg. srsi of two tickers. I have posted below what I have pieced together, but just doesn't appear correct. It could use a good editing above my cut and paste skills. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Code:
``````declare lower;

input len = 7; #changed from the setting of 20 per the instructions of the original author

input ticker_1 = "COMP";
input ticker_2 = "\$DJI";

def srsin_1;
def value1 = close(ticker_1) - open;
def value2 = high - low;
def value3 = if value2 == 0 then 0
else value1 / value2;

def srsin_2;
def value4 = close(ticker_2) - open;
def value5 = high - low;
def value6 = if value5 == 0 then 0
else value4 / value5;

srsin_1 = Sum(value3, len);
srsin_2 = sum(value6, len);

plot srsi = (srsin_1 + srsin_2) / 2;
srsi.assignValueColor(if srsi > 0.05 then Color.GREEN
else if srsi<-0.05 then color.red
else color.yellow);

plot l1 = 0.38 ;
l1.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_RED);

plot l2 = -0.38;
l2.SetDefaultColor(Color.DARK_GREEN);

plot zline = 0;
zline.SetDefaultColor(Color.ORANGE);``````
