AccumulativeSwingIndex

Summary

A variation on Wilder's swing index which plots an accumulation of the swing index value of each candlestick or bar.

Remarks

The accumulative swing index is used to gain a longer-term picture than the Wilder's swing index. When the accumulative swing index is positive, the long-term trend is up. When the accumulative swing index is negative, it signals a downwards long-term trend.
