Bollinger_Band - fractional standard deviations

Postby EdL » 21 Feb 2013

Hi,

I recently started using MultiCharts.Net and wanted to use the Bollinger Band indicator. Other competitor products allow the BBs to have fractional standard deviations (double values) but MC.Net only allows integer values. This is quite a standard requirement (and only a basic code change) and I wonder if it has accidentally been looked over by the dev team. I will make a request for this to be altered/added to both the indicator and the PowerLanguage.Function.BollingerBand.

In the meantime, here is my (very slightly) modified indicator that allows double values.

Thanks,

Ed

MC.NET 8.5 beta has introduced a breaking change to the BollingerBand function.

Here is the updated indicator script so you can use fractional standard deviations in 8.5 beta.

Thanks a lot for sharing EdL.

I would like to comment that I see that several others have downloaded too, but no "Thanks"... So sharpen up folks! I think a little thanks would be in order when people are so kind that they care to share their work....
