I already shared a method to estimate tops and bottoms (1), the number of parameters could lead to optimization issues so i tried to make a simpler method. In this method i use a simple rescaling method based on individual direction deviation. I will explain further details below.
I use as source for the entire calculation an...
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...
VixFix Enhanced by PeterO - Inverse Vix_Fix added, so now this is a dual-sided script (original VixFix shows only lows)
Note from the author: I wouldn't advise betting your strategies entirely on VixFix concept.
Original VixFix created by ChrisMoody on 12-26-2014...V3 MAJOR Update on 1-05-2014
Its the first strategy that i post here, so don't expect ground breaking stuff, when testing my indicators i always used prorealtime and not tradingview. This strategy use signals generated by the peak/valley estimator indicator i posted long ago, i think the signals generated where sometimes quite accurate in some markets thus providing potential...
This indicator was originally developed by John Forman (Stocks & Commodities, V.24:6 (May, 2006): "Cross-Market Evaluations With Normalized Average True Range").
Mr. Forman uses a normalized average true range indicator to analyze tradables across markets.
Edge-preserving smoothing is often used in image processing in order to preserve edge information while filtering the remaining signal. I introduce two concepts in this indicator, edge preservation and an adaptive cumulative average allowing for fast edge-signal transition with period increase over time. This filter have nothing to do with classic...
Estimating the Peaks and Valleys or extrema of the price is one of the best way to catch up early movements of a trend. Of course there is no perfect way to do so, if we want a perfect estimation of peaks and valleys then we must use a non causal indicator (repainting), if we want a causal indicator (non repainting) then we will need to tradeoff...
Will be bullish when the peak of the small blue mountain touch with the great green mountain.
Will be bearish when the peak of the small pink mountain touch with the great red mountain.
