    Moving Avg calculation question.

    Some of my indicators have an internal private DataSeries.
    For example: myValue = new DataSeries(this);
    There may be some bars that don't have a myValue associated with them. What happens if I input the myValue DataSeries into a Moving Average indicator such as EMA
    e.g. EMA(myValue, 23)[0] where the period encompasses some of the bars with no myValue? How does EMA evaluate the previous 23 bars when some of the bars have no myValue associated with some of the bars? Thanks.

    If you don't stuff in any value, then NT takes the a default which is "Input[0]" which is defaulted to "Close[0]".

      What if my calculated values that I am stuffing in to the myValue DataSeries have no relationship to Input[0] and aren't even the same order of magnitude of Input[0]? What if myValue is, for instance, the number of days since the last full moon except in certain circumstances?

        Then it will take the close of the underlying bar series.

          Thanks, all. I think I've figured out a way to stuff a good approximation of what I want into my currently "vacant" spots on my DataSeries.
