Senkou Span A

This study calculates and displays the Senkou Span A for the Price Data.

Let \(H\) and \(L\) be random variables denoting the High and Low Prices, respectively, and let \(H_t\) and \(L_t\) be their respective values at Index \(t\). Let the Tenkan-Sen Length and Kijun-Sen Length Inputs be denoted as \(n_{TS}\) and \(n_{KS}\), respectively. Then we denote the Senkou Span A at Index \(t\) for the given Inputs as \(SSA_t(n_{TS},n_{KS})\), and we compute it in terms of Tenkan-Sen and Kijun-Sen for \(t \geq 0\) as follows.

\(\displaystyle{SSA_t(n_{TS},n_{KS}) = \frac{TS_t(H,L,n_{TS}) + KS_t(H,L,n_{KS})}{2}}\)

Note: Senkou Span A by default has a Displacement setting of 26. When changing the various Input settings for this study, you may need to change the Displacement setting as needed.
