Calculation of the Bilson Trend as a technical trading indicator.

1 | ```
trdbilson(y, exponent)
``` |

`y` |
Objects of classes: numeric, matrix, data.frame, ts, mts, and timeSeries are supported. |

`exponent` |
Numeric, the value for |

The Bilson trend is calculated according to the formula:

*
z = sign(y) \times |y|^{(1 - |y|^α)}
*

An object of the same class as `y`

, containing the computed
Bilson trend values.

- y = "data.frame"
The calculation is applied per column of the data.frame and only if all columns are numeric.

- y = "matrix"
The calculation is applied per column of the matrix.

- y = "mts"
The calculation is applied per column of the mts object. The attributes are preserved and an object of the same class is returned.

- y = "numeric"
Calculation of the bilson trend.

- y = "timeSeries"
The calculation is applied per column of the timeSeries object and an object of the same class is returned.

- y = "ts"
Calculation of the bilson trend. The attributes are preserved and an object of the same class is returned.

- y = "xts"
Calculation of the bilson trend. The attributes are preserved and an object of the same class is returned.
