OK thanks. That would be a bit more difficult so if you’re interested in a scripting consultation let us know and we’ll look in to it, or maybe someone else would be willing to reply with a solution. Are you only interested in closing prices and not high / low prices?

2: Bollinger BandwidthBBW(Bars=5)

Here’s the ASX200 sorted by lowest ATR as a % ie least volatile over the last 5 days, along with the BBW% (save and open the workbook attached):
