The AIQ code based on Sylvain Vervoort’s article in the September issue of Stocks & Commodities, “Oscillators, Smoothed,” is provided at www.TradersEdgeSystems.com/traderstips.htm and is also shown below.

In the chart of Sanderson Farms (SANF) with a color bar study that shows potential buys (green bars) when both oscillators are moving up and they are both oversold (below 20). It sells (red bars) when both oscillators are moving down and they are both overbought (above 80). The bands shown are based on the modified Bollinger Bands that are used in the calculation of the modified Percent b oscillator. For comparison purposes, I have also provided the formula for John Bollinger’s original Percent b indicator as well as for the original smoothed %K indicator.
