Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Can you expand on how you are using these? What do you consider an entry/exit signal? What are your specific settings? Can you show some additional examples?

Watch the Ehlers webinar on (formerly BMT) for specific examples:


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

@Zondor Is it possible to get a copy of your version of the SuperSmootherRoofingFilter? If not, I understand. I gave a thorough search for it, but came up empty. Thanks in advance.

I added calculations of adaptive cycle length and smoothing period to the Super Smoothed Roofing Filter that John Ehlers introduced at the webinar.

That's in panel 2. A stochastic is applied to it in panel 3.

The webinar was very valuable. Gave me a lot of ideas.

ATF (any time frame) SuperSmoother

Any thoughts out there on using SuperSmoothers based on time frames other than those on the chart, such as shown here?

The high and low pass limits of the MESA Stochastic used to be hard coded at 10 and 48, but on this particular chart they are 12 and 80. I don't think 10 and 48 are good as one size fits all values. Oscillators such as this can also be calculated on Any Time Frame.

As usual, the bars with highest average trade sizes prove to be worth watching as support/resistance areas.

Ehlers cycles and lag issues

Futures Edge on FIO
Fellow traders,
Have you found an edge with the "Adaptive" indicators employing the "Hilbert Transform or the Homodyne Discriminator"??
From what I have seen they all lag when compared to their "std versions", even when I use half the calculated period, period/2.

Any input is very much appreciated. Maybe I am doing something wrong or there is a better Hilbert Transform out there...?
