RTL is the Investor/RT Language, a formula language for composing trading signals, custom indicators, and scans. RTL is an end user language, designed to be used by those with little or no programming skills. RTL is used to write a formula. A formula may be a true/false condition, e.g. CLOSE < MA, that determines whether some condition is true or not for each bar (a signal) or the last bar (a scan). A formula may compute an arithmetic result, called a custom indicator. For example: MA ( HIGH – CLOSE ) computes a moving average of how far an instrument closes from its high.

  1. Simple scripting language used to write Custom Indicators, Signals and Scans within Investor/RT
  2. RTL is a tokenized language. Market data and indicator values are referenced using simple RTL tokens like OPEN, HIGH, CLOSE or MA (Moving Average), etc.
  3. Formulas can perform arithmetic operations (+, -, *, /) and relational comparisons (<, >, >=, <=). A complete library of built-in functions include Minimum, Maximum, Average, Sum, etc.

This video provides an introductory explanation of the data values within each bar upon which RTL operates:
