Loop to Record Average Change in Bars

I am trying to record the average difference in the highs of the last few bars. This is the code I have:

For Counter = BarsToAvg DownTo 1 Begin
BarDevi = (High[Counter] - High[Counter+1]);
TotalDevi = HighDevi + HighDevi[1];


The output I get for this is:

Why don't my numbers match up? Any help is greatly appreciated!

BarDevi = (High[Counter] - High[Counter+1]);
TotalDevi = HighDevi + HighDevi[1];

You was using BarDevi, then using HighDevi.
Should they be same? Otherwise BarDevi would be meaningless in this indicator.

You are printing TotalDevi, which in your code piece is always 0.
I guess the summation for TotalDevi should look something like in this code.
Set it to 0 before the loop and then with each loop add BarDevi to it.

		TotalDevi = 0;
		For Counter = BarsToAvg DownTo 1 Begin
			BarDevi = (High[Counter] - High[Counter+1]);
			TotalDevi = TotalDevi + BarDevi;
			Print("High["+NumToStr(Counter, 0)+"]-High["+NumToStr(Counter+1, 0)+"]: ", BarDevi:6:6);
			Print("TotalDevi: ", TotalDevi:6:6);

		Print("High[1]-High[2]: ", High[1]-High[2]:6:6);
		Print("High[2]-High[3]: ", High[2]-High[3]:6:6);
		Print("High[3]-High[4]: ", High[3]-High[4]:6:6);
		Print("High[4]-High[5]: ", High[4]-High[5]:6:6);
