I am trying to understand the logic behind the original CCFp indicator. I have gone through the code and then manually tried to calculate the CCFp values, but I think that I cannot reproduce how the CCFp makes its calculations of the MA. I manually calculated the MA's and the CCFp, but it differs from what the CCFp indicator states. As far as I understand, the CCFp, for the USD, is the sum of the following: EURUSD_Slow / EURUSD_Fast - 1 GBPUSD_Slow / GBPUSD_Fast - 1 AUDUSD_Slow / AUDUSD_Fast - 1 NZDUSD_Slow / NZDUSD_Fast - 1 USDCHF_Fast / USDCHF_Slow - 1 USDCAD_Fast / USDCAD_Slow - 1 USDJPY_Fast / USDJPY_Slow - 1 When calculating this manually for the weekly TF, I do not get the exact results. Perhaps there is something else done in the code, other than just adding the above values? Are the calculations affected by the TF? Is the calculation for weekly done by values on the minute chart? What is done in the end of the code, by the k factor? Any help in understanding this would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Archie
I am not a coder so I can not explained in the code but you can take a look at the following:
Hi,thanks for your reply, but I have read the mentioned articles, but I think that I still don't get all the calculations (or logic) in the code.
