eSignal 12 - Float Turnover Channel
The Float Turnover Channel study displays a shaded channel which represents the time it took for the volume of trades to equal the entire public float of the symbol. This study is applicable to Equities only (specifically those with Float data). Additionally, the Float Turnover Channel only works on daily intervals or higher.
The upper line of the channel represents the highest high seen during the time, and the lower line represents the lowest low seen during the time. Float turnovers are shown on the charts as a gray rectangle with two pink edge lines. The rectangle changes from day to day like a moving average and is known as the float turnover box or float box. The following picture gives an example of what this looks like on a chart with the default settings.
The blue lines are the historic values of the Float Turnover Channel. The Upper and Lower channel lines display where the channel lines were in the past. The Middle line is the mid-point.
