A technical indicator that measures downside risk in terms of both depth and duration of price declines. The Ulcer Index (UI) increases in value as the price moves farther away from a recent high and falls as the price rises to new highs. The indicator is usually calculated over 14 days with the UI showing the percentage drawdown a trader can expect from the high over that period. The greater the value of the UI the longer it takes for a stock to get back to the former high.
Calculation: Ulcer Index:
1) Percentage Drawdown = [(Close - 14-period High Close)/14-period High Close] x 100;
2) Squared Average = (14-period Sum of Percentage Drawdown Squared)/14;
3) Ulcer Index = Square Root of Squared Average;
