Does anyone know how to remove these "Draws between draws" to create a suggested hit date. I totaled the numbers,  "384 + 465 + 398 + 9 + 51 + 139 + 62 + 155 + 92 + 20" and divided the total by 10. Converted the draws into days and months.

My question is how would you handle the outlier numbers like 384, 465, 9 and 20? Is there a better way using this data to create a hit date?

There is deviation, but no indication.

What does that mean? I understand the deviation, but can't relate to the indication.

I would like to know if I should exclude the the low and high numbers, or input them all. I'm trying to create an average return date for a number to hit. These numbers represent the number of "draws between draws."

When in doubt, backtest both ideas.
