Moving Average - Centered by Jose Silva

Here's a concept I thought about whilst on holidays:

Forward reference (shift backwards on charts) and center a Moving Average, then extend and project the last known MA direction into the future.

This method gets around the no-plot in null (N/A) zone limitation in MetaStock, and can apply to any indicator or oscillator on charts or separate windows.

Moving Average - Centered

{ Centered Moving Average - v3.0 }
{ Uses forward-referencing to center Mov Avg
and project future direction.}
{ Uses hindsight - do not trade! }

For personal use only.
