[R&S] Moving Centroid

This script utilizes this concept. Instead of weighting by volume , it weights by amount of price action on every close price of the rolling window. I assume it can be used as an additional reference point for price mode and price antimode.

it is directly connected with Market (not volume ) profile, or TPO charts.

The algorithm:
1) takes a rolling window of, for example, 50 data points of close prices:
2) for each of this closing prices, the algorithm will check how many bars touched this close price.
3) then: sum of datapoints * weights/sum of weights

Since the logic is implemented in pretty non-efficient way, the script sometimes can take time to make calculations. Moreover, it calculates the centroid taking into account only close prices, not every tick. of a given rolling window That's why it's still experimental.
