High/Low Moving Average

Click here to read about Moving Averages.


How does the high/low Moving Average differ from the Simple Moving Average? Again like the Adaptive Moving Average, when the price is highly eratic there will not be a temptation to buy/sell, as the price will be contained within the high/low boundaries. While if the price is going in one direction, this can be seen clearly by the location of the price line, in comparison to the high/low moving average.

This chart study will plot the moving averages of both the high and low for the selected period.


Parameters: Period.
