Does anyone have any thoughts about how to approach using an adaptive length for something like an RSI? Thanks!

Vince, there are different approaches to establishing a variable lookback period for indicators.

One of them is my rendition called "Adaptive RSI 2.0" which is powered by my Adaptive Lookback indicator. The idea is to come up with a parameterless (almost), market-driven indicator that sets the period based on the frequency of swings as a measure of market dynamics.

Hi Eugene!

Thanks for the reply. I did see your Adaptive RSI script. In it you selected the equivalent value from the standard RSI
CODE:

Since the RSI value for any bar relies on the value for the previous bar I was looking for a slight different approach. I guess that the easiest way will be to roll my own RSI.
