The Kdjperiod interval defines the MaxHigh, which is also the highest high and MinLow, which is also the lowest low.
This implies that if the MinLow is subtracted from the MaxHigh, what we’ll get is the height of the specified KdjPeriod interval.
Subsequently, we determine the distance between the Close price of the current bar and MinLow as a percentage of the height of the nominated KdjPeriod interval.
This is the base RSV line.
We get a smoothed K line by averaging the base RSV line with the M1 period.
We get a smoothed D line by averaging the smoothed K line with the M2 period.
The histograms of the KDJ is obtained from the difference between the K line and the D line.
