Year to Date Change Indicator

The Year to date change is a trading indicator that is usually used to calculate the percentage change of a stock's last closing price compared to the previous year close price. You can also use the indicator to calculate the Year to date percentage change of any other time-series or indicator.

The trading indicator name is "YearGain". The first and only argument it accepts is the time-series that will be used to calculate the Year to date percentage gain. Example: YearGain(close) to get a stock percent increase or decrease in a given year. The indicator won't work if historical data of a stock covers less than one year.

The indicator has many applications. For example, the indicator can be applied to calculate the YTD change of another stock or index and compare that value to the YTD change of the current stock.
a = YearGain(GetSeries("^GSPC", close));
b = YearGain(close);
res = b - a;

In the above example, I simply referenced an external index (S&P 500) using the "GetSeries" function, and then calculated the difference between the Year to date change of current active stock and the Year to date change of the S&P 500 Index. The result can be called the Year to date relative strength index.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
