Description

The Moving Average Ribbon is a series of incrementing moving averages.

 

Syntax

MovingAverageribbon(RibbonMAType movingAverage, int basePeriod, int incrementalPeriod)

MovingAverageribbon(ISeries<double> input, RibbonMAType movingAverage, int basePeriod, int incrementalPeriod)

 

Returns the MovingAverage1 value (Replace the 1 with the desired moving average you want the value to return)

MovingAverageribbon(RibbonMAType movingAverage, int basePeriod, int incrementalPeriod).MovingAverage1[int barsAgo]

MovingAverageribbon(ISeries<double> input, RibbonMAType movingAverage, int basePeriod, int incrementalPeriod).MovingAverage1[int barsAgo]

 

Return Value

double; Accessing this method via an index value [int barsAgo] returns the indicator value of the referenced bar.

 

Parameters

input

Indicator source data (?)

RibbonMAType

Moving average to use for calculations

basePeriod

Number of bars used in the calculation for the fastest moving average

incrementalPeriod

Number of bars to increase for the calculation in each additional moving average

 

 

Examples

ns


// Prints the current value of the 3rd moving average

double value = MovingAverageRibbon(RibbonMAType.Exponential, 10, 10).MovingAverage3[0];

Print("The current 3rd moving average's value is " + value.ToString());
