High-Low Difference Channels - SMA/EMA

I wrote this up as a potential replacement for my BB based strategies, and so far it's looking pretty nice.

Description / Usage:
  • Adjust length and multiplier much the same way you would expect with Bollinger Bands .
  • Multiplier of 1 gives you a base channel consisting of one high, and one low sourced SMA (or EMA )
  • The outer channels are increments of the base channels width, away from the median hl2 sourced SMA (..or EMA )
Comment: New revision here, with more MA options than you can shake a stick at:
Comment: Final revision done.

Added (optional) select-able fixed resolutions, so you can have 1 hour bands on your 1 minute chart if you do so feel inclined.

Otherwise just some minor code cleaning and proper commenting:
