This is part of a new series we are calling "Strategy Myth-Busting" where we take open public manual trading strategies and automate them. The goal is to not only validate the authenticity of the claims but to provide an automated version for traders who wish to trade autonomously.
Our fourth one we are automating is one of the strategies from "I Found The Best 1...
Linearly Weighted Ordinary Least Squares Moving Regression
aka Weighted Least Squares Moving Average -> WLSMA
^^ called it this way just to for... damn, forgot the word
Totally pwns LSMA for some purposes here's why (just look up):
- 'realistically' the same smoothness;
- less lag;
- less overshoot;
- more or less same computationally intensive.
Modified LSMA (Least Squares Moving Average) to use exponential rates of growth instead of linear regression. Inputting a number into the confidence interval allows the user to have set percentage of statistical guarantee based on past movement. To set this percentage of guarantee (Default set to 97.5%), refer to the input values below:
0.000 = 50%
