                                                   How to get the median closing price?


2014-05-19 04:21:00

Is there a way to get the median (not the simple moving average but the simple moving median) closing price over a range of days?

Maybe this helps: a = MedPrice(close,close[120]);

To get Median price, use "MedPrice" function.
To get moving average of median price:

a = sma(medprice(), 10);

medprice is the average (also known as the mean) of day's high and low price. I'm looking for the median closing price.
