API documentation for pandas_ta.trend.decreasing Python function.

decreasing(close, length=None, strict=None, asint=None, percent=None, drift=None, offset=None, **kwargs)[source]#


Returns True if the series is decreasing over a period, False otherwise. If the kwarg ‘strict’ is True, it returns True if it is continuously decreasing over the period. When using the kwarg ‘asint’, then it returns 1 for True or 0 for False.

if strict:

decreasing = all(i > j for i, j in zip(close[-length:], close[1:]))


decreasing = close.diff(length) < 0

if asint:

decreasing = decreasing.astype(int)


close (pd.Series): Series of ‘close’s length (int): It’s period. Default: 1 strict (bool): If True, checks if the series is continuously decreasing over the period. Default: False percent (float): Percent as an integer. Default: None asint (bool): Returns as binary. Default: True drift (int): The difference period. Default: 1 offset (int): How many periods to offset the result. Default: 0


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


pd.Series: New feature generated.
