Qstick on the Charts
From Investopedia: The Qstick is calculated by taking an -n- period moving average of the difference between the open and closing prices. A Qstick value greater than zero means that the majority of the last -n- periods have been up, indicating that buying pressure has been increasing.
Key Takeaways:
  • A rising indicator signals the price is closing higher than it opened, on average.
  • A falling QStick signals the price is closing lower than it opened, on average.
  • The QStick can generate trade signals based on signal-line or zero-line crossovers.
