Adaptive technical indicators are importants in a non stationary market, the ability to adapt to a situation can boost the efficiency of your strategy. A lot of methods have been proposed to make technical indicators "smarters" , from the use of variable smoothing constant for exponential smoothing to artificial intelligence.
The dominant cycle...
John F. Ehlers introuced his Dominant Cycle Tuned Bandpass Filter Strategy in Mar, 2008.
In "Measuring Cycle Periods", author John Ehlers presents a very interesting technique of measuring dominant market cycle periods by means of multiple bandpass filtering. By utilizing an approach similar to audio equalizers, the signal (here,...
The Discrete Fourier Transform Indicator was written by John Ehlers and more details can be found at www.mesasoftware.com
I have color coded everything as follows: blue line is the dominant cycle, orange line is the power converted to decibels, and I have marked the other line as red if you should sell or green if...
Behold! A strategy that makes use of Ehlers research into the field of signal processing and wins so consistently, on multiple time frames AND on multiple currency pairs.
The Adaptive Zero Lag EMA (AZLEMA) is based on an informative report by Ehlers and Ric .
I've modified it by using Cosine IFM, a method by Ehlers on determining the dominant cycle period without...
Ehlers Smoothed Adaptive Momentum script.
This indicator was developed and described by John F. Ehlers in his book "Cybernetic Analysis for Stocks and Futures" (2004, Chapter 12: Adapting to the Trend).
This Indicator is based on classic MACD but with an exceptional smoothing.
This smoothing eliminates the noise of the classic MACD as you see in the Chart
Adaptive MACD is compiled using with two adaptive moving averages, one adaptive to the dominant cycle and the other adaptive to twice the dominant cycle. As the basic behind the MACD is the difference of...
Yet another method for determining the cycle of a market: this time, you have access to the two fastest and most accurate methods
as well as the option to average these methods together.
The controls are pretty straight forward:
Source lets you select the price data to perform calculations on (close, open, etc..)
Max Period is simply the cap for the algorithm...
The Spectrum Derived Filter Bank was created by John Ehlers (Stocks & Commodities V. 26:3 (16-22)) and this is technically two indicators in one. This will let you know the current cycle period which is in blue and the other indicator will let you know if you should buy the stock or not. Buy when it is green and sell when it is red.
Let me know if you would like...
The Dominant Cycle Tuned Bypass Filter was created by John Ehlers (Stocks & Commodities V. 26:3 (16-22)) and this is a particularly unique indicator because this does a pretty good job at predicting the future stock movements. If the blue line crosses over the red then a few bars from now the stock price will most likely go up and if the blue line crosses below...
This is my latest bandpass filter - used to determine if a security is in a trend or cycle.
Now with an adaptive period setting! I use Ehlers in-phase & quadrature dominant cycle measurement (IQ IFM) method to set the period dynamically.
This method favors longer periods which tend to produce smoother, albeit laggier bandpass oscillator plots. From my quick tests,...
John F. Ehlers introuced Phase Accumulation technique of cycle period measurement in his "Rocket Science for Traders" chapter 7. It is perhaps the easiest to comprehend. In this technique, John Ehlers measures the phase at each sample by taking the arctangent of the ratio of the Quadrature component to the In-phase component. A delta phase is...
John F. Ehlers introuced Measuring the Dominant Cycle using the Dual Differentiator in his "Cycle Analytics for Traders" chapter 14 on 2013.
With Hilbert transformer, the first algorithm to compute the dominant cycle is called the dual differentiator. In this case, the phase angle is computed from the analytic signal as the...
John F. Ehlers introuced Zero Crossings Period Measurer in his "Cycle Analytics for Traders" chapter 5 on 2004.
The band-pass filter can be used as a relatively simple measurement of the dominant cycle. A cycle is complete when the waveform crosses zero two times from the last zero crossing. Therefore, each successive zero...
John F. Ehlers introuced Dual Differential Cycle Period Measurer in his "Rocket Science for Traders" chapter 7. The In-phase and Quadrature components are computed with the Hilbert Transformer using procedures identical to those in the Dual Differentiator.
blackcat L2 Ehlers Homodyne Discriminator Cycle Period Measurer is used to...
