DeMarker Indicator Formula

The DeMarker indicator is the sum of all price increment values recorded during the "i" period divided by the price minima. The Demarker indicator formula is:

The DeMax(i) is calculated:

If high(i) > high(i-1) , then DeMax(i) = high(i)-high(i-1), otherwise DeMax(i) = 0

The DeMin(i) is calculated:

If low(i) < low(i-1), then DeMin(i) = low(i-1)-low(i), otherwise DeMin(i) = 0

The value of the DeMarker is calculated as:

DMark(i) = SMA(DeMax, N)/(SMA(DeMax, N)+SMA(DeMin, N))

Where: SMA - Simple Moving Average;
N - the number of periods used in the calculation.
