seriesName
The name of the series which will be displayed on the chart, i.e. its label.
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 third percentile of the series.

Remarks

Recall that the percentile is the value such that at least interest-percent of the data set items are less than or equal to this value, or equivalently if at least (100-interest) percent of the items are greater than or equal to this value.

Remarks:

  1. The 50-th percentile is the measure of centrality of a data set known as the median. The median can also be evaluated using Median.
  2. The 25-th, 50-th, 75-th percentiles are often referred to as the 1-st, 2-nd (median) and 3-rd quartile respectively. The term quartile refers to the fact that these three values will roughly divide the data set considered into four equal parts.
