Uni Channel

Uni Channel by Omega Research 1997 is an overlay that displays a top, middle and bottom path. The channels are calculated by adding, subtracting or multiplying user defined factors from a simple moving average. The user may modify the input (close), method (SMA), periods (10) and factors (.o2,.o2). This indicator’s definition is further expressed in the condensed code given in the calculation below.
