I just started looking at RRG on stockcharts.
I am confused about what time period is being used to generate the plotting of the RS-Ratio and the RS-Momentum on the graph. Apparently, it has nothing to do with the 1, 3, 5, or 10 year time frame that you can select, because that only seems to impact the information on the S&P index (for illustration purposes only). So, what is the time period that is being used?
Whatever the time period is, it does not appear to be something that I can adjust - is that correct?
I also don't quite follow how the choice of daily or weekly is impacting the graph. I understand that daily or weekly just refers to the source of the data (daily or weekly) that is being used to generate the calculations and is not the actual time period over which you are doing the measurement - correct?
If that is the case, then I'm somewhat surprised by the degree of difference when I change from weekly to daily. Assuming that you are doing the calculation of RS-Ratio and RS-Momentum over the same time period (whatever it is), I did not expect to see the choice of daily or weekly data impacting the graph so much. Also, since you are ending up at the same end point and covering the same measurement period (I assume), but just using different inputs (daily or weekly), shouldn't the end location of a particular stock on the graph be essentially the same, regardless of the choice of daily or weekly?
