IF I understand what the heck you're asking:
add all the "bodies"
add all the "tails"
(7+4+5) / (2+0+4) / 3
The Stock market is made up from candlesticks of time duration.
If the 'Tails' on a Candlestick are a percentage of the main 'Body', and you have lots of series of candlesticks in one subject (i.e. a stock) How can you calculate the stock with the largest or smallest % of tails?
What I thought would be a simple calculation ran into problems: 1st with dividing with zero (when body = tails). Ok - substitute with 0.001. This then upset my my averages by providing Huge numbers. It seems that I'm in a circular catch 22 position.
Please tell me that my stats knowledge is poor and there is a simple solution
