Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA) Strategy [TradeDots]"The Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA) Strategy" is a trend-following system that leverages the adaptive qualities of the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA). This strategy is distinguished by its ability to adjust dynamically to market volatility, enhancing trading accuracy by minimizing the effects of false and delayed signals often associated with the Simple Moving Average (SMA).
HOW IT WORKS
This strategy is centered around use of the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA) indicator, which refines the principles of the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) with a superior smoothing technique.
KAMA distinguishes itself by its responsiveness to changes in market prices through an "Efficiency Ratio (ER)." This ratio is computed by dividing the recent absolute net price change by the cumulative sum of the absolute price changes over a specified period. The resulting ER value ranges between 0 and 1, where 0 indicates high market noise and 1 reflects stronger market momentum.
Using ER, we could get the smoothing constant (SC) for the moving average derived using the following formula:
fastest = 2/(fastma_length + 1)
slowest = 2/(slowma_length + 1)
SC = math.pow((ER * (fastest-slowest) + slowest), 2)
The KAMA line is then calculated by applying the SC to the difference between the current price and the previous KAMA.
APPLICATION
For entering long positions, this strategy initializes when there is a sequence of 10 consecutive rising KAMA lines. Conversely, a sequence of 10 consecutive falling KAMA lines triggers sell orders for long positions. The same logic applies inversely for short positions.
DEFAULT SETUP
Commission: 0.01%
Initial Capital: $10,000

Volume-Weighted Kaufman's Adaptive Moving AverageThe Volume-Weighted Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average (VW-KAMA) is a technical indicator that combines the Volume-Weighted Moving Average (VWMA) and the Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA) to create a more responsive and adaptable moving average.
Advantages:
Volume-Weighted: It takes into account the volume of trades, giving more weight to periods with higher trading volume, which can help filter out periods of low activity.
Adaptive: The indicator adjusts its smoothing constant based on market conditions, becoming more sensitive in trending markets and less sensitive in choppy or sideways markets.
Versatility: VW-KAMA can be used for various purposes, including trend identification, trend following, and determining potential reversal points and act as dynamic support and resistance level.

twisted SMA strategy [4h] Hello
I would like to introduce a very simple strategy that uses a combination of 3 simple moving averages ( SMA 4 , SMA 9 , SMA 18 )
this is a classic combination showing the most probable trend directions
Crosses were marked on the basis of the color of the candles (bulish cross - blue / bearish cross - maroon)
ma 100 was used to determine the main trend, which is one of the most popular 4-hour candles
We define main trend while price crosses SMA100 ( for bullish trend I use green candle color )
The long position strategy was created in combination of 3 moving averages with Kaufman's adaptive moving average by alexgrover
The strategy is very accurate and is easy to use indicators
the strategy uses only Buy (Long) signals in a combination of crossovers of the SMA 4, SMA 9, SMA 18 and the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average.
As a signal to close a long position, only the opposite signal of the intersection of 3 different moving averages is used
the current strategy is recommended for higher time zones (4h +) due to the strength of the closing candles, which translates into signal strength
works fascinatingly well for long-term bullish market assets (for example 4h Apple, Tesla charts)
Enjoy and trade safe ;)

All for One Moving AverageThis is a collection of all the moving averages available. Some are built-in, a couple were tricky to source out.
Higher timeframes can be specified so you aren't limited to your chart setting.
Repainting has been disabled by default.
There is also an option to use Heikin Ashi candles as the input source rather than standard bars.
Hope that someone finds this useful.
If you'd like anything added please DM me and I'll include it!
Feel free to copy this into your own strategies/indicators.

Efficiency Ratio (Market Noise) by Alejandro PThis is an indicator based on the Efficiency Ratio by Perry Kaufman. Like Price Density, which we have published previously, Perry Kaufman's Efficiency Ratio is a quantifiable method of measuring market noise.
This version of the indicator includes a feature to make the values of the indicator change based on thresholds to easier visualize different market conditions. Additionally there is a directional feature which factors in the direction of the price moves.
We can use the Efficiency Ratio to set rules and only trade particular systems when noise is at an appropriate level. For example, if noise is high then we would want to avoid trend following strategies and instead trade mean-reversion strategies, and vice-versa when the opposite is true.
The Efficiency Ratio can also be used to match assets to strategies. Some assets will be naturally more noisy than others and therefore we might have a principle where we only trade those noisy assets with our mean reversion strategies and the more quiet assets with trend following strategies.
Calculation:
Efficiency Ratio = Absolute net change in close price / absolute sum of the individual close price changes
The numerator looks at the absolute close change in price. It subtracts the starting close price in the period from the final close price in the period. The denominator compares the close price of one bar to the close price of the previous bar, this is performed for each of the successive bars in the whole period and then the value is summed. The absolute price is used because there are positive and negative values because each bar may close above or below the previous bar close.
The Efficiency Ratio provides an opposite interpretation of market noise compared to Price Density. With Price Density high values = high noise and low values = low noise. With the Efficiency Ratio high values = low noise and low values = high noise.
Comparing Price Density to Perry Kaufman's Efficiency Ratio:
Similarities
Both use the sum of the individual bar moves
- Price Density - High - Low
- Efficiency Ratio - Close to Close
Differences
Price Density uses the full price range (to determine the height of the box)
Efficiency Ratio uses the net close price change over the period
The interpretation of the values is the reverse for each

3MA'S + KAMA Trend (20EMA,50MA,200MA + KAMA Trend)This indicator, combines the traditional FOREX moving averages (20EMA, 50ma, 200ma) into a single indicator with
an adaptive moving average (AMA) taken from a user defined timeframe to show trend direction (by default, it plots
the daily 10/2/34 KAMA overlayed on any timeframe chart.
An AMA moves slowly when markets are sideways but swiftly during periods of volatility as a result it reacts much fast than
traditional options for moving average trends.
If the price is above the KAMA, trend is up. Below the KAMA, trend is down.
