Fantastic – works very well mladen! Thank you so much.

A couple of requests if it wouldn’t be too much trouble:

1. While 4 MA are all in synch, price retreats and touches a designated MA

( in this case the 2nd shortest MA, the red 15 EMA ) I would like an arrow and alert produced.

I would then change to smaller 1M time frame to look for short signal there.

I insert horizontal and vertical lines so its easy to spot where to look (point A) on smaller 1 M timeframe backtesting

2. Can I ask the 4 ma synch indy to only look for two or three ma’s to be in synch in order to show the histogram bar? (please see the 1m conditions attachment for what I am trying to do here)

I am afraid that this indicator is not designed or predicted to show price touches. Also I am quite sure that thera are already good indicators that are doing exactly that sort of job.

As of 2 and 3 mas version : simply replace the "" in the code where you see comparison that goes like "if (ma1<ma2 && ma2<3" ... and so on, with "=" and then set 2 mas to same values for 3 different mas or 2 pairs of mas to same values to have 2 mas shown by the indicator

Thanks for the suggestion.

My coding is next to useless!

I changed the > and < to = but got some errors when compiling.

What do I need to do differently?

You should have replaced "<" with "" with ">=" (not just "=")

PS: forgot to tell that 2 MAs are always in sync

Kaufman Adaptive moving average

Kaufman Adaptive moving average (by Alexander Gettinger)

Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA) was created by Perry Kaufman and first presented in his book Smarter Trading (1995).

Formulas:

KAMA = KAMA+sc*(Price-KAMA), where

sc = (er*0.6015+0.0645)*(er*0.6015+0.0645),

er = Abs(Price-Price)/Sum1,

Sum1 = Sum(Abs(Price-Price)) from (i-Length+1) to i.

Kaufman AMA pre-filtered

Preparing Kaufman AMA (adaptive moving average) for some other things, and here is one version that has a very simplified way of using (ama calculation is made a function now). It can have price per-filtering too (instead of using raw price, filtered price can be used (to turn the filtering of, set the PriceFilter to 1)
