building 200 days database for S\R lines

Hi
I would like to build a 200 days database so i can calculate s/r lines from it (calculate the ATR of each day) . I know that QCollector does this work. is there a good freeware that does the same work? does gommiCD do the same thing? or else how do i do such calculation?

I do not know what you want to do with it, but if you are looking for an average daily range, you could just add the Volatility Bands indicator to a NinjaTrader chart.

It will display

-> the average daily range for a period 1 (example 50 business days)
-> the average daily range for a period 2 (example 100 business days)

and then subtract/add that amount to the current daily high/low to display a target for the current day's price action.

Only restriction: This indicator does not use the average true range, but the average daily range (no adjustment made for gaps).

building 200 days database for S\R lines

thank you very much Fat tails
actually i need something different.
i want to take a data base of the last 200 days, and then write a program that will calculate for each day the difference between the open and the high of the day and the open and the low of this day - and then calculate the average price - for the highs and the lows of 200 days.
the question is again - where can i find or how do i build a data base of the open/high/low of the last 200 days?
full of respect and thanks to your will to help

If you don't require finer granularity than daily OHLC, you can just use Yahoo (e.g.). It depends on which symbols you want.

If you're using IQFeed, you can download a free trial of XLQplus....

I know you have asked for a freeware but this guy here might have what you are looking for:

Or with I/RT (very interesting stuff here):
