Trying to calculate the 5 day median of the high + low.
This doesn't work:

set {range, high + low}
set {range1, high 1 day ago + low 1 day ago}
set {range2, high 2 days ago + low 2 days ago}
set {range3, high 3 days ago + low 3 days ago}
set {range4, high 4 days ago + low 4 days ago}
set {total, range + range1 + range2 + range3 + range4}
set {floatingaxis, total / 10}

I'm trying to implement the equations for the value charts described in the book "Dynamic Trading Indicators."
I've struggled with this problem for quite a while so any help is appreciated.

CLICKABLE...

Fetcher[
set {range, high + low}
set {range1, high 1 day ago + low 1 day ago}
set {range2, high 2 days ago + low 2 days ago}
set {range3, high 3 days ago + low 3 days ago}
set {range4, high 4 days ago + low 4 days ago}
set {total, range + range1 + range2 + range3 + range4}
set {floatingaxis, total / 10}

MAYBE....

Fetcher[

SET{VAR1,WEEKLY HIGH + WEEKLY LOW}
SET{VAR2,VAR1 / 2}

DRAW VAR2 ON PLOT PRICE

I am sure there is an easier way ... but this works ...

Fetcher[
set{HL,high + low}
set{HL1,high 1 day ago + low 1 day ago}
set{HL2,high 2 day ago + low 2 day ago}
set{HL3,high 3 day ago + low 3 day ago}
set{HL4,high 4 day ago + low 4 day ago}

set {md, HL/2}
set {md1, HL1/2}
set {md2, HL2/2}
set {md3, HL3/2}
set {md4, HL4/2}

set {A, md + md1}
set {B,md2 + md3}
set {C,B + md4}
set {D,C + A}
set{Rtotal, D/5}

price is between 9.7 and 10.00
and average volume(30) is greater then 150000
and DRAW Rtotal ON PLOT PRICE

]



... now its time to clean it up and condense some of the code !

Chetron and Cacher - Thank you both for your help. I was able to finish programming the indicators.
I had struggled with the "SUM" function withoutsuccess. I have a tough time debugging Fetcher filters. It seems to require a trial and error approach. I expect it will become easier with experience.

ronun ... Sounds like you are onto a good filter. Glad I could help. Chetron turned some lights on for me too with that sweet sum function .... that was really nicely done. Coding is always alot of trial and error .... but its fun.... even the stockmarket is alot of trial and error.... and even more fun ;-)

This is not a filter - it is an indicator.

How does one use this? What are the signals for entering into a trade based on this, or on this plus some other indicator in combination?
