Speaking of IBD Relative Strength, does anyone know the indicator formula
for an IBD-type relative strength line. (I think it's a 200 day moving
average of close/indicator (S&P 500) with a 40% weighting toward the last
month, or something like that, but I called IBD a long time ago, and asked,
only to be told it was "proprietary".)

I also assumed that IBD RS <50 was weaker than the S&P and >50 was stronger,
but couldn't get a number that matched the IBD number.

Any one have this one figured out ?
