This study is an experiment utilizing the Ehlers Gaussian Filter technique combined with lag reduction techniques and true range to analyze trend activity.
Gaussian filters, as Ehlers explains it, are simply exponential moving averages applied multiple times.
First, beta and alpha are calculated based on the sampling period and number of poles specified. The...
This is an experimental study built on the concept of using roofing filters on price data proposed by John Ehlers.
Roofing filters are a type of bandpass filter conventionally used in HF radio receivers in the first IF stage to limit the frequency spectrum passed on to later stages in the receiver.
The goal in applying roofing filters to a price signal is to...
When smoothing data there is always a trade-off between lag and removal of noise.
Gaussian filter has a consistently low lag and a very smooth curve.
This filter works for poles higher than the 4 (usual usage).
Mathematically maximum poles is 15 after which coefficients are too high to see any difference.
By tuning Lag and number of Poles you can achieve a very...
This is a moving average with a customizable gaussian kernel. You can shape your kernel by selecting your parameters in the settings window. This is not something that is immediately ready to mess with by just applying it on the chart, it is very useful for people who are researching indicators and developing new tools. To see the shape of your kernel you can plug...
Collection of some of the best moving averages.
I've tried to collect them all but TV became so slow, that it was completely unusable.
So i left only those that performs best on various backtest systems.
With 4 Moving averages options, length input and source input this script will help you test so you can find the best moving average type and length according to the gaussian distribution theory.
Gaussian Distribution Theory:
68% of all data points fit within 1 Standard deviations of the mean
95% of all data points fit within 2 Standard deviations of the...
