HI,

I know it has been discussed here.

It was an indicator that looks quite interesting but is nothing but an ema.

I remember there was a post that shows the original indicator and the ema and after some bars both show identical values (line).

Doe anybody remember the name?

Do you mean the comparison between a Smoothed Moving Average (SMMA) and the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) and that they are both the same except for the calculation of the weight constant?

For EMA, the weight = 2 / ( period + 1 ), and for SMMA, the weight = 1 / period!

Is that the one? https://www.mql5.com/en/code/7258

Thank you that was it!

I was experimenting with the Dema and I got the suspicion that it might this one. At least the - dema = 2*ema-ema(ema) -  looks somewhat different.

good one. it actually comes down to EMA/SMA, as i've never seen a backtest where LWMA gave a good result. There are even some libraries with 20 different variations of MAs, but i couldn't benefit from them.
