I have a question with the calculation of these moving averages. From Friday's data 05/10/07, when depressing the period key twice on the DJ-30 I get a 50 simple moving average 10528.97 and a 200 simple moving average 10530.44. But when I test my pcf (AVGC50 / AVGC200) * 100 = (10528.92 / 10528.53) * 100.00. Why the difference in the values?

Your 200sma is not of price, it is of the 50sma (you want it to be an average of price.)

Hit the EDIT button on the chart.

Notice how the 50ma is indented under price? This means the 50 is a child of the price.

Notice how the 200 is indented under the 50? This means the 200 is a child of the 50, not of price. You want the 200 to be indented under price but flush left with the 50 (so they have the same parent).

Delete the 200 (use the trash can icon)

Hit the plus next to PRICE (not the 50ma) and add the 200. It will be indented under price but flush-left with the 50 (they will now have the same parent).
