How can one find the average price change in x days?

Is there posible to use std dev of open - close? Or is this far off :)

Just add up the "price change for x days" and then divide the number by x days to get the average. Here's the average of the previous 5 days for stocks that had an average of at least 2%:

set{avg_chg,sum(day change,5) / 5}
avg_chg above 2
add column avg_chg
