"There are various ways to detect trends with moving averages. The moving average is a rolling filter and uptrends are detected when either the price is above the moving average or when the moving average’s slope is positive.
Given that an SMA can be well approximated by a constant-α AMA, it makes a lot of sense to adopt the AMA as the principal representative of...
@ChartArt got my attention to this idea.
This type of moving average was originally developed by Michael R. Bryant (Adaptrade Software newsletter, April 2014). Mr. Bryant suggested a new approach, so called Variable Efficiency Ratio (VER), to obtain adaptive behaviour for the moving average. This approach is based on Perry Kaufman' idea with Efficiency Ratio...
The Moving Average Adaptive Q (MAAQ) was authored by Perry Kaufman in the Stocks and Commodities Magazine 06/1995
This is similar to his Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average with a few changes. This is a pretty close moving average which I like quite a bit. Try it and let me know what you think.
Send me a message and let me know what other indicators you would like to see!
"You don’t put sunscreen when there is no sun, you don’t use an umbrella when there is no rain, you don’t use a kite when there is no wind, so why would you use a trend following strategy when there is no trend ?"
This is how i start my 4th paper "A New Technical Indicator For Optimal Markets Detection" where i present two new technical...
MTF ready adaptive MA using Ehler's IQ IFM ( In Phase - Quadrature Instantaneous Frequency Measurement ).
Ehler's formula is a method of quantitatively measuring the length of a market cycle. In this case it is used to calculate the "optimal" adaptive EMA.
Theoretically the length generated by Ehler's formula could be used in many indicators and it's been placed...
The biggest challenge for any trader is identifying turning points in price movements. You never know if you’ll end up getting whipsawed out of a trade. Here’s one way to avoid those whipsaws.
Use cross sections of between AMA and KAMA.
Sell: Cross(KAMA, AMA)
Creator of KAMA: Perry Kaufman
Creator of AMA: Vitali Apirine

Hi, this script comes from the idea that Ricardo Santos' Minkovski Distance Function is transferred to the period as a factor.
Minkowski distance is used as a percentage factor with the help of Relative Strength Index function.
Minkowski Distance Function Script :
And thus an...
An adaptive filtering technique allowing permanent re-evaluation of the filter parameters according to price volatility. The construction of this filter is based on the formula of moving ordinary least squares or lsma , the period parameter is estimated by dividing the true range with its highest. The filter will react faster during high volatility periods and...
