In this study, a Dynamic replaces the Tenkan-Sen and Kaufman's replaces the Kijun-Sen.
The cloud is calculated by taking the mean of the highest high and lowest low, adding a golden mean standard deviation above and below, and offsetting it over the specified period.
The lagging span is calculated by offsetting the closing price by the same amount as the cloud period.
Added Custom Bar Colors for easy signal detection.
Tenkan-Sen and Kijun-Sen are now calculated by taking two moving averages or two McGinley Dynamics.
Expanded the available moving average types. Rather than just Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average, the available moving averages now in this script are:
-Exponential Moving Average
-Simple Moving Average
-Smoothed Moving Average
-Weighted Moving Average
-Volume Weighted Moving Average
-Hull Moving Average
-Least Squares Moving Average
-Arnaud Legoux Moving Average
-Coefficient of Variation Weighted Moving Average
-Fractal Adaptive Moving Average
-Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average
Added a smooth lagging span option, which displaces the fast moving average instead of raw source.
Linked the offset and cloud sampling period to the slow moving average, because I've found the results to be significant and consistent.
New bar color schemes are now available. There are three different color schemes to choose from, all of which are much simpler to read.
I've done a complete overhaul on this script. Everything was rebuilt from the ground up.
The new formula adheres more to the traditional Ichimoku calculation method with more filters to choose from, including some moving average proxies.
The filter types available in the new version are:
-> Exponential Moving Average
-> Double Exponential Moving Average
-> Simple Moving Average
-> Smoothed Moving Average
-> Weighted Moving Average
-> Volume Weighted Moving Average
-> Arnaud Legoux Moving Average
-> Least Squares Moving Average
-> Hull Moving Average
-> Coefficient of Variation Weighted Moving Average
-> Fractal Adaptive Moving Average
-> Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average
-> McGinley Dynamic
-> Moving 50th Percentile
-> Moving Median
Filter types are available to select in an easy to use dropdown menu.
Volume type is available for VWMA calculation. If the chart you're analyzing has no real volume source, select "Tick" as the volume type.
Updated bar color themes are available. Select either a Kumo based theme, Tenkan Kijun based theme, or Chioku based theme via the dropdown menu.
Tried with McGinley Dynamic selected but like all McGinley's I'm often left confused on the 1 day charts by it falling well below price action. On the 4 hour it's fine, though I'm preferring it as it comes with dynamic switched off on cvwma.
The cvwma makes almost the exact same movements as the guppy I use and the cloud and the mid-line of the cloud are very obvious support and resistance. Very much a novice so hope I've explained myself alright.
