The R-series are calculated by dividing the closing value of the stock index by the 'Moving Average' reading that day. As an example, the value for the Nasdaq R50 today is simply the closing value of the Nasdaq divided by the average value over the last 50 days. Generally, good buying opportunities begin to appear when the indicator is at a relatively low level. So, which period should you choose? The answer is simple. Shorter periods, such as 5 or 10 days, are suitable for short term trading strategies and longer periods, such as 50 or 200 days are suitable for longer term trading strategies. On the chart, you'll find that it is much better to plot short periods over a shorter range, such as 6 months.
