a(t) = a(t-1) + price(t)
b(t) = (a(t) - a(t-n))/n
This method is the one used in order to allow the user to use a series as period, more info here:
Today we use this design in order to provide a pretty efficient low-lag moving average where the amount of lag of the moving average can be increased/decreased by the user.
length control the period of the moving average, with larger value of length returning larger filtering amount. The lag setting in the other hand control the amount of lag of the moving average, with larger value of lag returning a moving average with less lag. The lag setting can't be lower than 1 or greater than 2, but values lower than 1 and greater than 0 would just return a moving average with larger filtering amount while values greater than 2 would create crazy wild overshoots.
In blue lag = 1.8, in red lag = 1.4, when lag = 1 the moving average is equal to a of period length. Remember that larger values of lag will return greater over/undershoots.
Approximate amplitude response of the moving average, like all low-lag moving averages you can see frequencies amplified (the ones on the left greater than 1).
We proposed a low-lag moving average based on the cumulative/change design where the lag of the moving average can be controlled by the user. There are tons of low-lag moving averages already, and they don't necessarily provide different results from each others, however this one is still relatively interesting as you can switch from a simple MA from a low-lagging one, other indicators are ready using this design and will be posted soon.

If it makes you feel better my most liked script is a derivative of yours. G-Channel is your best work to date but most don't realize it. My derivative of your G-Channel got over 5 times the likes compared to yours because I applied it for trend analysis which is a different application than what you intended, and added features making it practical for people to use. I hope you find happiness, I enjoy the things you create a great deal and you should too. Be kind to people, don't threaten others when we're all just trying to sharpen our skills and become better at our craft and what we're passionate about. I don't care about views or likes or my free tradingview account. I'm only here to make money. I wish you all the best, you are truly impressive and your potential has no bounds. Thanks for the inspiration. You won't be hearing anything further from me.
