## Average Range

The **Average Range** shows the average range of price movement over a period that is defined by you.

#### Range Calculation

Each interval's **Range** is the difference between the interval's high price from its low price.

#### Averaging Calculation

The ranges for each interval can then be averaged with the preceding ranges to arrive at an average range for the period set in the **Parameters** tab of the **Average Range Properties** dialog box.

#### User Settings

##### Periods

The user can set the number of previous ranges that will be averaged to produce the average range for a given interval.

Type in a whole number in the **Periods** text box in the **Parameters** tab of the **Average Range Properties** dialog box.

The default number of periods is 20, this setting will use all the ranges of the previous 20 periods and average them to produce the **Average Range** for the current interval.

##### Display

The **Average Range** is displayed in an indicator window below the price chart.

The exact display of the plot is controlled on the **Plots** tabbed page of the **Average Range Properties** dialog box.

The Style selected for the plot can be one of the following: **Solid, Dashes, Dots, Points, Histogram** or **Step**.

Once the style is selected the **Color, Weighting** and **Visibility** can also be controlled from this page.

The **Scale's** display is controlled from the **Scale Settings** and **Scale Appearance** tabbed pages.
