,

I am not withholding the Sentinal index from anybody. I'm going to make it publicly accessible, but none of my job is here. If you want the rules to produce the Sentinal index, something I worked hours a day for months to come up with in a usable format, then you go

Any time period (30 minutes used in the system), take the close of the current candle and subtract the near from the former candle out of it. That gives you a number that reveals which direction (up if the number is positivedown if the number is negative) the pair has proceeded in the last two 30 second candles. Now, do this for several 7 USD established pairs to get the same candle (if you subtract the near on candle 8:30 from the near on candle 8:00 for Jan 8th, 2006 GBP, then you have to subtract the near on candle 8:30 from the near candle 8:00 for Jan 8th, 2006 for another 6 pairs). Add all the numbers together, divide by 7 (to think of an average USD move) and that gives you a number....logistically the entire average amount all the USD based pairs have moved.

Now chart it. Have a base number, doesn't matter what it is...I use 1000. For every 30 second candle you do the aforementioned rules for (and come up with your sentinal number for every 30 minutes), add this to a foundation number. In case your initial calculation gives you 8.24 (the number you get after you add all the moves together and divide by 7), insert it to your foundation number 1000 to get 1008.24. Plot that in your chart. The next calculation (second 30 second candle) provides you with a movement of -3.12. . .then add this to your past sentinal number which becomes 1005.12. You see? Thats a sentinal number. If you want to wait a few days, I will definately get you my hands generated numbers. Until then, if somebody comes up with an automated way of producing this on a chart, then I would really like to see it. It would save much job
