‘Know Sure Thing’ (KST)

The ‘Know Sure Thing’ is a momentum based oscillator and based on ROC.

Calculation:
Default Inputs:

roc1=10, roc2=15, roc3=20, roc4=30, sma1=10, sma2=10, sma3=10, sma4=15, signal=9, drift=1

ROC = Rate of Change SMA = Simple Moving Average rocsma1 = SMA(ROC(close, roc1), sma1) rocsma2 = SMA(ROC(close, roc2), sma2) rocsma3 = SMA(ROC(close, roc3), sma3) rocsma4 = SMA(ROC(close, roc4), sma4)

KST = 100 * (rocsma1 + 2 * rocsma2 + 3 * rocsma3 + 4 * rocsma4) KST_Signal = SMA(KST, signal)

Args:

close (pd.Series): Series of ‘close’s roc1 (int): ROC 1 period. Default: 10 roc2 (int): ROC 2 period. Default: 15 roc3 (int): ROC 3 period. Default: 20 roc4 (int): ROC 4 period. Default: 30 sma1 (int): SMA 1 period. Default: 10 sma2 (int): SMA 2 period. Default: 10 sma3 (int): SMA 3 period. Default: 10 sma4 (int): SMA 4 period. Default: 15 signal (int): It’s period. Default: 9 drift (int): The difference period. Default: 1 offset (int): How many periods to offset the result. Default: 0

Kwargs:

fillna (value, optional): pd.DataFrame.fillna(value) fill_method (value, optional): Type of fill method

Returns:

pd.DataFrame: kst and kst_signal columns
