This indicator is intended to complement the Synergy indicator. It provides the following statistics:
- A percentage showing how often the two assets move in the opposite direction over a given lookback period.
- Similarly, another percentage showing how often the two assets move in the same direction over the same lookback period.
- Count the number of times (occurrences) when the two assets move in the same direction for more than 4 bars.
- Count the number of times the alternative asset moves more than x%
- Count the number of times that chart asset moved in the same direction of the alternative asset when the alternative asset moved more than x%
Both indicators were developed for use in an investigation/tutorial using Pine Script to analyse Gold and US Dollar Index correlation.
