Have a good weekend, rctrade Topic: Starting Moving Average at the beginning of the graph Posted: Friday, December 07, 2018 8:56:03 AM Bruce, how can you start the moving average Indicator , see below the 200d SMA and 200d DEMA,   at the beginning date of the graph instead of the offset time to construct the moving average.. Would setting a negative offset be the way? Or is it just shifting the average to a different place in time. thnx rctrade Topic: Latest and Greatest TTM Squeeze Posted: Wednesday, November 21, 2018 8:51:30 AM Bruce,could you please  send  me  the latest TTM squeeze, mine is  from 2016. Thankyou, Happy Thanksgiving rctrade Topic: Moving Average Crossover using trend strength Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 7:10:07 AM Thanks Bruce I will go through through your  great analysis. Be back in about a month or so... :-) rctrade Topic: Moving Average Crossover using trend strength Posted: Monday, October 22, 2018 7:19:03 PM Bruce  you are  amazing, I went  through the  code to understand, since  worden has  ADX as a built in didn't  know how to handle it. But let me see if I understand it. So, 1. ADX = 100* EMA(ABS((+DI minus - DI)/+DI plus -DI)) 2. +DM = C(H)-C(H,1)      - Positive Directional movement 3. - DM =  C(l)-C(l,1)         - Negative Directional Movement 4. If +DM>0 and -DM then + DM, else 0 5. If -DM >0 and +DM then -DM, else 0 6. +DI = 100* EMA(+DM/ATR(x))  where ATR is `XAVG(ABS(XAVG(MACD12.26, 9) - XAVG(MACD12.26.1, 9)), 27), 27)????  - is this the Average True Range formula?` 7. The MACD's are used as the moving average crossovers I presume. If you look at the plot it doesn't make sense at  #1 and #2. Maybe #1 needs more data prior to the swing up. But 2 looks divergent with what I expected. I did not modify any time frames until I understand the logic. Any thoughts on the plot? Thanks rctrade Topic: Moving Average Crossover using trend strength Posted: Friday, October 19, 2018 2:54:36 PM Thanks Bruce and next time you are on vacation don't check this site.... :-) Will give it a shot... rctrade Topic: Moving Average Crossover using trend strength Posted: Friday, October 19, 2018 10:55:10 AM Bruce  - here's what I did,  I must of misunderstood your directions cause I'm not getting an indicator display. rctrade Topic: Moving Average Crossover using trend strength Posted: Thursday, October 18, 2018 6:26:49 PM Will do    thanks rctrade Topic: Moving Average Crossover using trend strength Posted: Thursday, October 18, 2018 2:47:11 PM Bruce, sorry for not providing more details..  "The filter(ADX) is applied to the slow moving average and reduces the likelihood of reducing false crossovers signals. Because minor fluctuations about the slow average are relatively constant in amplitude,  the filter is calculated as a percentage slightly greater than the normal amplitude fluctuation".  ref: Market Timing and walk foward optimizing, Charles D Kirkpatrick So as I read this and try to answer your question, I beleive it's ADX applied to SMA of Price. Hopefully this helps... Thanks rctrade
