Mladen's One More Average:::
Explanation from Mladen:
The usual story goes something like this : which is the best moving average? Everyone that ever started to do any kind of technical analysis was pulled into this "game". Comparing, testing, looking for new ones, testing ...______________________________The idea of this one is simple : it should not be itself, but it should be a kind of a chameleon - it should "imitate" as much other moving averages as it can. So the need for zillion different moving averages would diminish. And it should have some extra, of course :The extras :it has to be smoothit has to be able to "change speed" without length changeit has to be able to adapt or not (since it has to "imitate" the non-adaptive as well as the adaptive ones)______________________________The steps :smoothing - compared are the simple moving average (that is the basis and the first step of this indicator - a smoothed simple moving average with as little lag added as it is possible and as close to the original as it is possible) Speed 1 and non-adaptive are the reference for this basic setup."speed changing" - same chart only added one more average with "speeds" 2 and 3 (for comparison purposes only here)finally - adapting : same chart with SMA compared to one more average with speed 1 but adaptive (so this parameters would make it a "smoothed adaptive simple average") Adapting part is a modified Kaufman adapting way and this part (the adapting part) may be a subject for changes in the future (it is giving satisfactory results, but if or when I find a better way, it will be implemented here)______________________________Some comparisons for different speed settings (all the comparisons are without adaptive turned on, and are approximate : approximation comes from a fact that it is impossible to get exactly the same values from only one way of calculation, and frankly, I even did not try to get those same values)speed 0.5 - T3 (0.618 Tilson)speed 2.5 - T3 (0.618 Fulks/Matulich)speed 1 - SMA, harmonic meanspeed 2 - LWMAspeed 7 - very similar to Hull and TEMAspeed 8 - very similar to LSMA and Linear regression valueDue to some properties of this average, it is very convenient to use it as a part of other indicators for pre- (as a filter before calculation) and post- smoothing. Some of the indicators that are going to be posted in this section are going to use this way to achieve those goals______________________________And, the last (it might be posted before the rest, but Parameters :Length- length (period) for averaging AppliedPrice- price to use for averaging (it uses the usual metatrader values :0 - close1 - open2 - high3 - low4 - median (high+low)/25 - typical (high+low+close)/36 - weighted (high+low+close+close)/4Speed- desired speed (i limited to -1.5 on the lower side but it even does not need that limit - some interesting results with speeds that are less than 0 can be achieved)Adaptive- does it adapt or not
This version is the same as above except added the 22 new price options,double smoothing option,the capability to filter the price ,oma values or both, and the new lighter mtf.
