Add this to the ratio code for MAE:

input lengthMAE = 10;
input pctAbove = 10.0;
input pctBelow = 10.0;
plot UpperBandMAE = Average(Relation, lengthMAE) * (1 + pctAbove / 100);
plot LowerBandMAE = Average(Relation, lengthMAE) * (1 - pctBelow / 100);



First of all thanks for sharing all this information .... i have one request can you please provide the full TOS code , actually i was trying to add the above code in your's TOS provide on first page it is showing me the error.
