 dotnetCHARTING Namespace > FinancialEngine Class > MeanDeviation Method : MeanDeviation(SeriesCollection,ElementValue) Method

sc
A collection of series objects. For example, to evaluate this indicator for two series you will need to pass a series collection containing this two series.
elementValue
Specifies the particular element value (for example High, Low, Close or Open of the financial time series) which will be considered within this indicator evaluation. In particular, if you wish to use the element value high then you should pass the parameter High. In a similarly fashion if you wish to use the low, close or open, then you should pass the parameter Low, Close, Open, respectively.
Calculates the mean deviation of the series's element values.

# Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration)
```Public Overloads Shared Function MeanDeviation( _
ByVal sc As SeriesCollection, _
ByVal elementValue As ElementValue _
) As Series```
Visual Basic (Usage)Copy Code
``````Dim sc As SeriesCollection
Dim elementValue As ElementValue
Dim value As Series

value = FinancialEngine.MeanDeviation(sc, elementValue)``````
C#
```public static Series MeanDeviation(
SeriesCollection sc,
ElementValue elementValue
)```

#### Parameters

sc
A collection of series objects. For example, to evaluate this indicator for two series you will need to pass a series collection containing this two series.
elementValue
Specifies the particular element value (for example High, Low, Close or Open of the financial time series) which will be considered within this indicator evaluation. In particular, if you wish to use the element value high then you should pass the parameter High. In a similarly fashion if you wish to use the low, close or open, then you should pass the parameter Low, Close, Open, respectively.

# Remarks

The mean deviation is exactly what the name implies, that is, it is the arithmetic average of the differences from each of the elements of the series to the mean of the series.
