    Williams Percent Range (WPR) is a momentum indicator that can be used to identify where a security might be overbought or oversold. The indicator line oscillates on the scale from 0 to -100 with overbought and oversold levels at -20 and -80 respectively. WPR is calculated as a ratio between the closing price of a security and the high/low range over a specific period.

    WPR = (Highest High - Close) / (Highest High - Lowest Low) * -100
