The publication of our ConditionalAverages library has deprecated this publication.
█ ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION
The need to calculate averages (arithmetic mean) comes up here and there in scripts. When you want the average of a value only when a given condition has occurred, you will often not be able to use the standard function in Pine because it will average all values in the series. Even if you take care to use your condition to set non-conforming values to zero, this ends up skewing your results with zero values.
This script calculates:
1. The running average of all up volumes,
2. The average of last x occurrences of up ,
3. The average up occurrences in last y bars.
Look first. Then leap.
- Made code for cases 2 and 3 into functions.
- Added examples of multiple-result functions.
Rewrite of code using techniques that eliminate all `for` loops.
Functionalized case 1.
