MACD EA: The Expert Advisor uses three iMA (Moving Average, MA) indicators and one iMACD (Moving Average Convergence/Divergence, MACD) Author: Vladimir Karputov
Kaufman AMA with filter: Adaptive Moving Average (AMA) technical indicator is used for constructing a Moving Average with low sensitivity to price series noises and is characterized by the minimal lag for trend detection. This indicator was developed and described by Perry Kaufman in his...
Schaff TCD RSX: As a logical step to filter out more the possible false signals, this variation of Schaff TCD RSI is using RSX (which is a smoother RSI than the "regular" RSI) to produce a smoother result. The extremes (0 and 100) are reached faster for this variation of the indicator - when...
Schaff TCD RSI: Doug Schaff created a few indicators that were meant to assess trends. In one of his indicators he uses what he calls "Shaff CD" (which is actually MACD signal line instead of using MACD). The resulting indicator has the benefit of putting the Schaff Trend CD on a scale of...
Schaff Trend RSX: Schaff Trend RSI is a useful indicator, but if we follow the slope of the RSI as a signal, it might give us a bit too much signals. The solution seems obvious: since RSX is "a smoother RSI" without a lag, in this version RSX is calculated instead of RSI. That makes the...
Glitch Index: Source of this on is February 2004, Active Trader magazine. System concept This system was inspired by the more successful stock systems that have appeared in the Trading System Lab. These strategies share a common timing technique - they attempt to take advantage of minor...
MACD High/Low: MACD (invented by Gerald Appel back in 1970) is one of the widely used indicators. Usually it is used in combination of a zero line and a signal line.That is a good approach but the zero line part has it's issues. One of the main issues is that the zero line after big changes...
Schaff Trend RSI: Schaff Trend Series indicator that is less known. While Schaff Trend Cycle is a sort of a double smoothed stochastic of a MACD, this is an RSI of the MACD. It partially reminds of a RSI of Moving Average, but the difference is significant enough to have it as a new...
Bulls and Bears: Usually we have one indicator showing bulls power and one showing bears power. Since they are not having the same ranges of values, they can not be just placed in the same window so that we have one all-in-one bulls and bears power window. This indicator makes this, and...
Kaufman AMA MACD: Adaptive Moving Average (AMA) technical indicator is used for constructing a Moving Average with low sensitivity to price series' noises and is characterized by the minimal lag for trend detection. This indicator was developed and described by Perry Kaufman in his book...
Price Channel Stop: A new variation of a well known price channel indicator. The indicator shows the current estimated trend based on channel period and desired risk. It also shows two levels of values that can be used as a stop loss for orders opened based on this indicator (using the trend...
Smoother Momentum Stops: Momentum is usually used for trend or price change direction assessment. This indicator changes that in some way. The stops are calculated using the smoother momentum and the direction of the stops is determined based on the smoother momentum. Apart from direction of...

Nonlinear regression: First, a few words about nonlinear regression: Nonlinear regression is a form of regression analysis in which data is fit to a model and then expressed as a mathematical function. Simple linear regression relates two variables (X and Y) with a straight line (y = mx...
Asymmetric bands: There are a lot of bands type indicators and almost all are working in a very similar way: some basic value is taken to be a central value and the bands are drawn on equal distances up and down. That encloses the prices very well, but usually causes a lag when there is a...
Synthetic smoothed RSI: The idea of this indicator is the same as for the synthetic RSI: Instead of using one RSI, the indicator is using 3 instances of RSI, Those 3 instances of RSI are then used to calculate the "synthetic" value (that is not an average of the 3 since the calculation...
Synthetic RSI: The idea of this indicator is simple: Instead of using one RSI, the indicator is using 3 instances of RSI, Those 3 instances of RSI are then used to calculate the "synthetic" value (that is not an average of the 3 since the calculation differs from an average). As an addition...
Composite Index: Constance Brown's description of Composite Index: The Composite Index was developed to solve the divergence failure problem in the RSI, but its ability to provide specific horizontal levels of support within the indicator adds to its value. The Composite Index takes the...
Polychromatic Momentum: Denis Meyers that invented Polychromatic Momentum, describes it as: Momentum is defined as the difference, or percent change, between the current bar and a bar some lookback period in the past. The major problem with using momentum based indicators is that the...
Dsl - RSI of average: This indicator is using filtered prices for RSI (instead of using "raw" prices) and is using Discontinued Signal Line for trend assessment (instead of using slope or fixed levels). Price filtering prior to RSI calculation helps in making less false signals without...

Permutations and Combinations: Introduction It doesn't happen very often, but every once in awhile one needs to iterate over all of the combinations or permutations of a set of objects. Or more specifically, given a set of N objects, you want to consider k of them at a time (for each...
