"Developed by Perry Kaufman, Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA) is a moving average designed to account for market noise or volatility. KAMA will closely follow prices when the price swings are relatively small and the noise is low. KAMA will adjust when the price swings widen and follow prices from a greater distance. This...
Many traders believe that the moving averages are favorite tools and analysts have spent decades trying to improve moving averages partiularly the simple moving average. One way to address the disadvantages of moving averages is to multiply the weighting factor by a volatility ratio which is called Adaptive moving averages.
This indicator uses an special adaptive...
These bands use KAMA for the basis, build Keltner Channels that you might expect high probability reversals to occur from.
I named it Tobacco Channel because I found its idea in Cuban's Reversion Bands — Indicator by cubantobacco.
Efficiency ratio was invented by Perry Kaufman as a measure of volatility and as a way of making some calculations adaptive. In his adaptive moving average he uses 3 periods for calculation which makes it a bit "cryptic" and, by all means, not so simple to use. This version is simplifying the whole thing without an intention to clone the KAMA indicator--but with...
@ChartArt got my attention to this idea.
This type of moving average was originally developed by Michael R. Bryant (Adaptrade Software newsletter, April 2014). Mr. Bryant suggested a new approach, so called Variable Efficiency Ratio (VER), to obtain adaptive behaviour for the moving average. This approach is based on Perry Kaufman' idea with Efficiency Ratio...
The efficiency ratio (ER) is described by Perry Kaufman in his book, Trading Systems and Methods.
It works by measuring the momentum of the market, that is, the absolute change from the current price to a past price, and divides it by the volatility, which is the sum of the absolute changes of each bar. That makes this a bounded indicator, going from 0 to 100,...
The Adaptive Rebound Line (ARL) focuses on the rebound of price action according to the trend.
While it does not focus on showing the trend, it does help in anticipating price rebounds.
It achieves this by adapting quickly and by reducing lag.
It is recommended to use this with a trend-identifying indicator.
It was inspired by the Hull Moving Average and the...

A selection of the most popular, widely used, interesting and most powerful Moving Averages we can think of. We've compiled 16 MA's into this script, and allowed full access to the source code so you can use what you need, as you need it.
From very simple moving averages using...
This MACD is averaging 3 different MACD; KAMA MACD, ZLEMA MACD, and normal MACD.
Can find easier MACD's divergence and convergence than normal MACD.
And more smoothly drawing than ZLEMA MACD (KZ_MACD) which is I've made before.
Adaptive Deviation is an educational/conceptual indicator that is a new spin on the regular old standard deviation. By definition, the Standard Deviation (STD, also represented by the Greek letter sigma σ or the Latin letter s) is a measure that is used to quantify the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of data values. In technical analysis we usually...
Average True Range (ATR) is widely used indicator in many occasions for technical analysis. It is calculated as the RMA of true range. This version adds a "twist": it uses Perry Kaufman's Efficiency Ratio to calculate adaptive true range
You can use this indicator the same way you'd use the standard ATR.
Goichi Hosoda's "Ichimoku Kinkō Hyō" is a widely used Trend Following indicator and can be defined as a "system" rather than an indicator.
Published in the late 1960's, consisting of 5 lines.
TenkanSen (Conversion Line) = of the last 9 bars
KijunSen (Base Line) = of the last 26 bars
SenkouSpanA (Leading Span A) = Average of Tenkan&KijunSen shifted -> 26...
Shows the slope of KAMA by comparing last bar KAMA value to current bar KAMA value. Very simple, yet very effective determining the trend or volatility of market. When slope is very small market can be in range, hence it can be used as volatility filter for trend traders.
This indicator uses KAMA to adjust the length of a channel according to volatility.
A set up is generated when a candle closes below/above the mid point line; this is indicated via the background color.
Buy/sell on the break of the high/low of the signal candle.
Use the channel top/bottom as a stop (or a close above/below the mid pint line)
