Configuration Options
- Field: Price or combination of prices to use as the base for average calculations. Possible values include:
- Open
- High
- Low
- Close
- Adjusted Close
- HL/2 \( \left ( \frac{High + Low}{2} \right ) \)
- HLC/3 \( \left ( \frac{High + Low + Close}{3} \right ) \)
- HLCC/4 \( \left ( \frac{High + Low + Close + Close}{4} \right ) \)
- OHLC/4 \( \left ( \frac{Open + High + Low + Close}{4} \right ) \)
- STD Period: Number of standard deviation periods to use in the calculation.
- Smoothing Period: Number of smoothing periods to use in the calculation.

where:
- Usum is the averaged sum of STD for positive days
- Dsum is the averaged sum of STD for negative days
