Moving average speed of growth as an MFP variable
« on: Mon, 10 May, 2010, 09:51 »
Hi,
lt_ma represents the moving average of the last traded price.

Is there a variable to describe the moving average declination or speed of growth (what is shown as light or dark - red or green in market interface full mode)?

What type of MA is calculated by MFP?

Best Regards,

Theodore

Hi Theodore,
What a good question & thank you for asking it.
I too would be very interested to know the answer.
Do hope someone can help.

I am currently playing with pdif_1 less than (pdif-1+pdif2).  Not sure whether that helps.

Hi there...

What type of MA is calculated by MFP? ... I believe MFPro calculates the moving average of the last xxx minutes where xxx is set by you in Settings>General options: Default markets history depth.

As for the inclination ...this is the rate of change of the price...how much a thing has changed in a given time period.
(price now - price, say, 10 minutes ago)/time difference...in this case 10 minutes.

If the default markets history depth is, say, 30 minutes then you can set Settings>General options:"show price difference for the following mins" to, say, 1.00, 10,00 & 30.00. The last box must NEVER be more than the history depth.

Then to get a figure that represents the rate of change of the price:
(pdif_30 - pdif_1)/30 = rate per minute over the last 30 minutes.
Positive figure = price has fallen; Negative = price has risen

Having set up the settings, you can have a user variable calculate this change.

Hope this helps.
