Kaufman AMA with Trend Change
This indicator is the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average, a/k/a KAMA, but which changes color when the indicator changes direction. This is a direct descendant of the Mov Avg Adaptive indicator that comes with MultiCharts.

I like single line indicators that change color when a trend changes, so this is my implementation of the KAMA with those attributes. The screenshot here is actually from TradeStation, but it looks and functions the same in MC.

Indicator Name: Mov Avg Adaptive Color Change
Inputs: Same as a normal KAMA, plus:
  • UsePlotColoring >>> set to true for coloring; false to turn it off
  • UpTrendColor >>> self explanatory
  • DownTrendColor >>> self explanatory
Small Difference in Original Calculation:
I added the Round2Fraction function to the MAA calculation, to round to the nearest minimum move for the chart. This helps filter out minor fluctuations when the indicator is practically flat, that may show a change in trend that isn't there. I don't believe this fundamentally changes anything, from my observations.

Import the PLA and apply to a chart. You're all set!

I posted a TradeStation version in that section, as the syntax is slightly different.

Kaufman Efficiency Ratio 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.5

The Kaufman Eifficiency Ratio is also know as Fractal Efficiency. It can be used as a filter to differentiate between trending conditions and sideways markets.

The efficiency ratio compares the absolute amount of the n-period momentum to the sum of the absolute amounts of the last n close-to-close changes. If all close-to-close changes pointed in the same direction - meaning either n consecutive upcloses or n consecutive downcloses - the fractal efficiency will take the value 100. This is an indication for a strong trend. If the n-period momentum takes the value 0, the fractal efficiency becomes 0 as well, indicating chop.

The fractal efficiency is used by the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average to identify chop periods.

This version of the Kaufman Efficiency Ratio has a few additional options:

Chopline: I have added a chopline, which depends on the period of the Kaufman Efficiency Ratio. The formula for the chopline is 100/Sqrt(period).

Signalline: I have added a signalline by using a Hull Moving Average(HMA). The market starts trending, when the Kaufman Efficiency Ratio has crossed both the signalline and the chopline from below.

Classic/Balanded: The indicator allows for two different ways of calculating the Kaufman Efficiency Ratio. The 'Classic' option uses the original formula of Perry Kaufman. The 'Balanced' option replaces the absolute amount of the n-period momentum with the absolute amount of the n-period balanced momentum, which is based on a triangular moving average.

Update June 22, 2013: Minor modification to make indicator compatible with indicators/strategies running in COBC = false.

NonLinear Moving Averages collection 5 *
Attached is a collection of 7 NonLinear Moving Averages and their functions for easy use in backtesting. Every indicator also contains an option to color the line to signal up and downtrends, and the user can specify these colors.

This pack include the following moving averages:
  • KAMA (Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average),
  • VIDYA (Variable Index Dynamic Average),
  • MAMA (MESA Adaptive Moving Average),
  • Ehlers Filter,
  • Median-MA Difference Filter,
  • FRAMA (Fractal Adaptive Moving Average),
  • NonLinear Laguerre Filter.
If you want to import a specific indicator, uncheck the other ones while importing them in MultiCharts.


The example screenshot just shows one nonlinear moving average to give an idea.
