### AC DC Histogram - Bill Williams Acceleration Deceleration Oscillator

This study calculates and displays a Bill Williams Acceleration/Deceleration Oscillator for the data specified by the **Input Data** Input. It is computed using Simple Moving Averages, and it is closely related to Williams' Awesome Oscillator.

Let \(X\) denote the **Input Data**, and let the Inputs **Moving Average 1 Length**, **Moving Average 2 Length**, **Moving Average 3 Length**, and **Moving Average 4 Length** be denoted as \(n_1\), \(n_2\), \(n_3\), and \(n_4\), respectively. Then we denote the **AC DC Histogram** at Index \(t\) as \(ACDC_t(X,n_1,n_2,n_3,n_4)\), and we compute it for \(t \geq \max\{n_1,n_2\} + n_3 + n_4\) as follows.
