I was unable to find an actual formula in the forum for a moving average channel of the highs and lows for a 5 SMA..

And there is apparently no way to do it in the indicator window..

Can someone please point me to a solution for this?  Thanks

Paul

I assume you want a channel around the 5 SMA? How are you determining the channel width?

You could just add two moving averages to the chart and change the Average Of setting to High for one and Low for the other.

If you really wanted to do it as a channel, you could use the following settings.

- Period: 5
- Average Type: Simple
- Width Multiplier: 1
- Indicator Line Formula: (H + L) / 2
- Channel Width Formula: (H - L) / 2

Bruce:

I'm using TC 2007 version and I don't see an option for setting that up in the indicator window:  https://www.screencast.com/t/hJ2ZUpP87rB3  

Are you referring to the web version 12?

Thanks!

Stockguy-I would think that whereever the channel width falls based on a 5 MA based on highs and 5 MA based on lows-I guess I would want the natural width and not a deviation...

The indicator you will want to add is called Price Channel in TC2000 v7, but the settings should be the same as given for the channel in my previous response.

Adding, removing and saving indicators to a chart template

There isn't an Average Of setting for the moving averages in v7. You could add Custom Indicators (just called Indicator in the list I think) set to Plot Using Price Scale to the price pane. You could use the following Indicator Formula for the high.

H

And the following Indicator Formula for the low.

L

You could then adjust the Smoothing Average and Average Type to match the desired moving average.
