I was comparing the Zondor'ed version to the attached indicator, CCI_EMA, downloaded from futures.io (formerly BMT) a while ago. After reading your post, I examined the code for this indicator and it appears it uses the SMA, the indicator just added an extra plot of an EMA.
I did modify it and changed to EMA for CCI calculation and it reproduced your results. Just another example of trusting and blindly using an indicator without at least knowing or checking the code.
I replaced both my Adaptive_Alternate_CCI and my Adaptive_CCI with your updated versions of 4 days ago and now get a compiling error with the latter (see attached). Do I need to remove this one and re-install the old one or what.
Also, any chance you can make a detrended version of the Adaptive_CCI?
@Zondor, LLMA is Elite only code please link to it in Downloads section or Elite thread (which this thread isn't).
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?

Thank you for taking this on and for improving the efficiency of the displayed indicators. I hope the posted article was useful or at least interesting. My typical use of the acci is somewhat co-linear but different enough that it holds it's place on the screen. I will try to journal more and reference my use in case anyone is interested.
I do have another simple request, one that indicates my true tech savvy acumen.
I do not know how to import a .cs file from post #15 into my NT. Can someone please explain that process for me?
Hello, very short manual:
1. download the file with .cs
2. open your document folder and try to search for ninjatrader/bin/custom/indicator
3. copy downloaded file into this folder
4. open ninjatrader
5. in ninjatrader go to tools/edit ninjascript/indicator
6. find the file in the list
7. click edit and push F5 for compile
8. if you do not see any errors than you can close it and use it
9. in case of errors you need to resolve them but this can be quite complicated (you may ask for support from ninjatrader)
