# Envelope Channels

## Template

### Top Channel

`(1 + w / 100) * AVGCx`

### Bottom Channel

`(1 - w / 100) * AVGCx`

`AVGCx`

### Channel Width

`w / 50 * AVGCx`

Where `x` is the Period of the Envelope Channels.
Where `w` is the Width % setting of the Envelope Channels.

The template is based on the Average Type being set to Simple.
Change AVG to XAVG if the Average Type is Exponential.
Change AVG to FAVG if the Average Type is Front Weighted (v17+).
Change AVG to HAVG if the Average Type is Hull (v17+).

I am totally lost as to what a complete formula with Top Channel and Bottom Channel would be written

if you where writing to say to Say that C was inside the Channel, for example using VWAP and a width of 0.08

Thanks

Using the form Bruce provides.

If you wanted a 5 SMA center line with an 8% envelope it would be

Upper: (1+8/100)*AVGC5

Lower: (1-8/100)*AVGC5

I dont use VWAP, but I dont think it can be created in the PCF language.

Thanks

so maybe

((C < (1+.08/100)*AVGC5)  AND

(C >  (1-8/100)*AVGC5))

(((C < (1+.08/100)*AVGC5)  AND

(C >  (1-.08/100)*AVGC5)))

Bruce is there a way to substitue VWAP for AVGC5

I PREFERRED VWAP (NOT MOVING) - dont think can be done however

In that cause will probably have to be moving vwap

AVG((O + H + L + C) * V, x) / 4 / AVGVx

(AVG((O + H + L + C) * V, 10) / 4 / AVGV10)

is so is this using moving vwap 10 period correct

(((C < (1+.08/100)*(AVG((O + H + L + C) * V, 10) / 4 / AVGV10)

)  AND

(C >  (1-.08/100)*(AVG((O + H + L + C) * V, 10) / 4 / AVGV10)

)))

If you need a formula, there isn't a way to do so. That said, you can apply 1-period envelope channels to the plain VWAP indicator and it will plot lines at Width (%) above and below the VWAP.

You can then click on the envelope channels and select Create Scan Condition to create conditions based on those envelope channels.

Your formula should work to check for price being inside such envelopes applied to a 10 period Moving VWAP indicator.
