Could percent-based indicators be used on RAD futures data?

Post by yoyo2000 » Mon Sep 21, 2009 4:58 am

The RAD futures data from Mr. Strideman is a kind of continuous data which multiply a factor on the the data that should be adjustd,instead of moving it up or down to eliminate the price gaps.

Strideman said,the RAD data could keep the percent-based relationship between price data.Well, in the case of bar-by-bar,he's right,but in the case of data between rolling bar,he's still right?Theoritically,the point value before and after the rolling bar are different because of the factor,is the calculation of mixing different point vaule up reasonable?

Further more,could all the percent-based indicators could be used on the RAD data?I'm not sure about it.

regards.

Why not ask Thomas Stridsman himself? He invented RAD contracts; nobody knows more about them than he does.

The search engine "Cuil" found him: http://tinyurl.com/nnpt7k The link gives his telephone number.

Stridsman was a presenter at one of the Trading Blox Conferences; presumably, speaking in English. Thus I assume if you ask nicely, he will speak English to you, on the telephone.
