Subject: [EquisMetaStock Group] special moving averages

Hello,

I would like to get some help regarding coding some moving averages. Essentially, I wanted to duplicate the efforts of Mark Fisher's moving averages which are not typically plotted on either the High, low or close prices, but an average of ALL THREE values.

In other words, if the current bar had a high of 1.20, low of 1.15 and a close of 1.18, the typical moving average would use either of those values, but I would like to take the average:

1.20 + 1.15 + 1.18/3 = 1.176

Then I can simply stipulate the usual " simple" or "exponential" or "weighted" etc, and stipulate the number of bars.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Al

Hi,

I believe that (H+L+C)/3 is provided in metastock as TYP().

Various types of weighting factors can be applied to it, e.g. MOV(typ (),P,F) where P is the number of periods to be used and F is selected as one of the predefined weighting factors available with the MOV function.
