Hurst Channel

I have the late Clyde Lee's Hurst Channel code in Multichart format and would like to make it a study to use in Sierra Charts.......there's actually two versions.......one projects forward x amount of days which works well on the inner channel but not so much on the outer channel..........and one version without the projection feature. His coding of the Hurst has been the most accurate I have come across.

I was going to try and do it myself but I've never done anything in acsil before and quickly realized that I was in way over my head......is there anyone that would like to take a stab at it?


Thanks
Jack

Thanks for responding! I did check over there first and there is a Hurst channel as well as a polynominal one....but neither match up with the results of Clyde Lee's........they're both a bit off no matter what kind of tweaking you do.......and believe me I've tried.....lol.......Jack

I read your post from several years ago and I would like to get these formulas and code for use in Multi Charts.net. Can u supply both in that form or at least the older MUlti Charts version and I will have them translated. Thank You ?

I am interested in both Multi Chart versions of the Hurst Channel u have in your post, The forward looking and the standard. I have Multi Charts.net but will convert these and will share them with you if you have interest. Would it be possible for me to obtain the code for both asap and I will have this converted ? Thank you for your prompt attention

It repaints so it's not useful in real time. In hindsight, it's the best thing ever.

 
Code
[LegacyColorValue = TRUE];

           N day average true range.

Hurst Channel formula within DLL file

Did I see this code on GITHUB from a guy named Thompson ?

I am looking for the code that plots 2 channels---an inner channel and an outer channel---both with forward projections

i have not installed the study u posted above but was looking at it.

The custom study I have installed has all the user inputs as the one you posted does with the exception of one named " ProjBars " which has a user imputed value of "5" to project forward 5 bars on both channel plots

I have the Study in my system now but the code is locked and I want to build a strategy for back testing and see what the results are.

The Code in Power Language is only about 8 lines in it
When the study is imported it creates a DLL named Hurst_dll
Nothing else in my system is installed as I checked by date and time for the entire system for installs or modifications

I decompliled and looked at the DLL but there is no formula within that.
It does contain a sizable amount of code--possibly something is hidden from view

It may call to something or it is hidden from the user

The study was a custom project and I paid for it and received it as part of an educational course so I have nobody to ask for it

I have the code to install it but I do not know how to proceed
As I stated, I do not want to distribute the code , I simply want to build a strategy for back testing around it.

Any ideas how to discover the formulas used for the Hurst channels and projections ?
Thanks for responding
