Fisher Transform

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Description

With distinct turning points and a rapid response time, the Fisher Transform uses the assumption that while prices do not have a normal or Gaussian probability density function (that familiar bell-shaped curve), you can create a nearly Gaussian probability density function by normalizing price (or an indicator such as RSI) and applying the Fisher Transform. Use the resulting peak swings to clearly identify price reversals.

 

 

Syntax

FisherTransform(int period)
FisherTransform(ISeries<double> input, int period)

 

Returns default value
FisherTransform(int period)[int barsAgo]
FisherTransform(ISeries<double> input, int period)[int barsAgo]

 

 

Return Value

double; Accessing this method via an index value [int barsAgo] returns the indicator value of the referenced bar.

 

 

Parameters

input

Indicator source data (?)

period

Number of bars used in the calculation

 

 

Example

ns


// Prints the current value of a 10 period using default (median) price type
double value = FisherTransform(10)[0];
Print("The current Fisher Transform value is " + value.ToString());
