The indicator transfers the price data to the new coordinates system associated with X2MA indicator values.
The distance from High, Low, Open and Close source candlestick to X2MA moving average is used in the indicator for candlesticks parameters.
As a result, we have a candlestick chart altered by X2MA transformation allowing to perform all elements of technical analysis like a common chart. Appropriate custom and technical indicators can be applied to it. In fact, the indicator zero level is X2MA moving average location.
Smoothing algorithms can be selected out of ten possible versions:
It should be noted that Phase1 and Phase2 parameters have completely different meaning for different smoothing algorithms. For JMA it is an external Phase variable changing from -100 to +100. For T3 it is a smoothing ratio multiplied by 100 for better visualization, for VIDYA it is a CMO oscillator period and for AMA it is a slow EMA period. In other algorithms these parameters do not affect smoothing. For AMA fast EMA period is a fixed value and is equal to 2 by default. The ratio of raising to the power is also equal to 2 for AMA.
The indicator uses SmoothAlgorithms.mqh library classes (must be copied to the terminal_data_folder\MQL5\Include). The use of the classes was thoroughly described in the article "Averaging Price Series for Intermediate Calculations Without Using Additional Buffers".
