A document by John Ehlers called "Predictive indicators" with a couple of tradestation indicators in it for which John Ehlers claims that are predictive. Attaching a tradestation original version of what I named Roofing Stochastic (since it uses "roofing filter" instead of raw price to calculate stochastic) even though John Ehlers calls it "MyStochastic" (typical I might say)
Anyway, on the example on a forex symbol (insted on some of the indices) the results are not as good as he claims them to be. Will test some more in tradestation and if they prove to be usable, only then a metatrader version will be made. Till then, if someone has the will to make it, the indicator is in its source form on page 7 of the attached document that describes the whole process of making it (btw: the indicator itself is not complicated at all)
As a first step : this is a roofing filter indicator as describe in the "Predictive indicators" document by John Ehlers
And the roofing stochastic as described in the same document
Just to explain in short what is John Ehlers doing in "roofing stochastic" : he is taking a roofing filter (from previous post) and calculating a "super smoother" smoothed stochastic of the roofing filter. Some strictly visual test are showing that longer calculation lengths are better, but better to experiment a bit with length and in runtime to see how it behaves then.
PS: as all John Ehlers indicators in this thread - this one does not repaint either
And to end : in the document is is just briefly described the "super smoother"
This is the super smoother of prices : the only parameter that can be changed is the price to use in the super smoother calculation (it might be a good filter for some price pre-filtering usage in some other indicators that filter prices prior to calculation).
Now all the indicators mentioned in that document are posted here
Many thanks for these 3 indicators.
I have add one variable (critical period) ,now we can do a Macd Super Smoother
Thank you so much for converting this indicators for mt4
It seems that this one is good for trading. Testing it today and it is OK
Thanks a lon Mladen
Thanks to you too for that idea and implementation ______________________
Actually I was thinking the other direction now (I mean regarding macd). What occurred to me is that the calculation length of super smoother does not have to be an integer value. And when I see a smoother / average / filter that allows a fractional length for calculation, an alarm bell rings and tells "adapting"
So here is an adaptive version of super smoother with a fractional length for calculation. At a first glance it seems like an improvement compared to "non-adaptive" version, but, as usual, please whoever uses it do some testing before using either of the 2. I am a freak when it comes to adaptive indicators (in my opinion they always beat the non-adaptive ones) but it probably depends on preferences and trading style
And a super smoother macd (once when the super smoother is made as function it is easy to make a macd out of it)
This one has even the signal line calculated as super smoother
