|Linear Regression Channel Indicator|
|The Linear Regression Channel indicator (LRC) has been added to the product.
This indicator plots a linear regression line and two other lines that are a specified standard deviation away.
The indicator has two parameters.
The first parameter is the number of bars to use in the calculation, and the second parameter is the number of standard deviations to use to draw the channel above and below the Linear Regression Line.
The Linear Regression Channel indicator is typically used to analyze the upper and lower limits of an existing trend.
It helps traders to find optimal entry and exit points during price tendencies on the chart.
You can find LRC criteria in the "Line Studies" - "Price" category of the Stock Screener tool.
For example, a condition for a price to cross a linear regression line would read Price Crossed Above Middle Line of LRC(100,2).
Of course, you can also use the linear regression channel lines in a formula expression.|
