A progamming look at Relative Strength Index - RSI
Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a technical momentum indicator that compares the magnitude of historical gains to recent losses base on the time it calculated. This is to determine over bought and over sold condition of that currency.
RSI = 100 - 100 / ( 1 + Average gain days / Average loss days)
* Average gains days is the average of x with bullish bars (High - low)
* Average loss days is the average of x with bear bars (Low - High)
X is the period defined by user.
