Chapter 4 Trick or Treat

You’ve seen how the different functions are written and how to nest them to create a formula.

This covers half the difficulty in writing formulas. The next fifty percent is deciding what you

want the formula to tell you. In other words, you have to be able to express what you want the

formula to do.

When you sit down and to write a formula, try to express it in the simplest terms possible. If

you’re not sure how to write it mathematically, write it in English. If you still do not know how

to express it as a formula, try writing it as if you were explaining it to someone who just started

looking at technical analysis today.

After an idea has been written out, the formula should be easier to create. It may, however, be

very messy. Messy in this case refers to a formula being long, repetitive, and/or involved. This

chapter is devoted to showing you some tricks and shortcuts that just might save you many hours

of work.
