tprc = typprice(highp,lowp,closep)
tprc = typprice([highp lowp closep])
tprcts = typprice(tsobj)
tprcts = typprice(tsobj,'ParameterName',ParameterValue, ...)



High price (vector).


Low price (vector).


Closing price (vector).


Financial time series object.


tprc = typprice(highp,lowp,closep) calculates the typical prices tprc from the high (highp), low (lowp), and closing (closep) prices. The typical price is the average of the high, low, and closing prices for each period.

tprc = typprice([highp lowp closep]) accepts a three-column matrix as the input rather than two individual vectors. The columns of the matrix represent the high, low, and closing prices, in that order.

tprcts = typprice(tsobj) calculates the typical prices from the stock data contained in the financial time series object tsobj. The object must contain, at least, the High, Low, and Close data series. The typical price is the average of the closing price plus the high and low prices. tprcts is a financial time series object of the same dates as tsobj containing the data series TypPrice.

tprcts = typprice(tsobj,'ParameterName',ParameterValue, ...) accepts parameter name/parameter value pairs as input. These pairs specify the name(s) for the required data series if it is different from the expected default name(s). Valid parameter names are

  • HighName: high prices series name

  • LowName: low prices series name

  • CloseName: closing prices series name

Parameter values are the character vectors that represent the valid parameter names.
