"""Entropy (ENTP)

Introduced by Claude Shannon in 1948, entropy measures the unpredictability
of the data, or equivalently, of its average information. A die has higher
entropy (p=1/6) versus a coin (p=1/2).

Calculation:
Default Inputs:
length=10, base=2

P = close / SUM(close, length)
E = SUM(-P * npLog(P) / npLog(base), length)

Args:
close (pd.Series): Series of 'close's
length (int): It's period. Default: 10
base (float): Logarithmic Base. Default: 2
offset (int): How many periods to offset the result. Default: 0

Kwargs:
fillna (value, optional): pd.DataFrame.fillna(value)
fill_method (value, optional): Type of fill method

Returns:
pd.Series: New feature generated.
