EMA angle indicator?

Hello.

I have an indicator on my PC that I have been playing around with , but im not sure where i got it from.
I imagine it might be this forum.

It is called 'Arrow_angles_4_perry_beta'

It draws arrows when the angle of an EMA hits whatever angle that you have input into the paremeters.

I've searched them words in google but nothing comes up.

Does anyone know of this indicator? I want to ask further questions about it but I dont even know where i got it from. Its been on my PC for quite a while.

Cheers

It's from this forum. I believe I downloaded it from here:

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Thanks.

I still cant find it, but at least I now know where it came from. It was bugging me.


I asumed that, as i said, an arrow was drawn when the MA hit the angle that i pre-determined, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

What criteria determines when the arrow is drawn???
I have attached a pic.
The setting for the pic is at 70 degree angle.

I found the original reference, but the indicator is no longer attached to the post. Perhaps it was moved?

I believe it was developed by ThatManFromTexas & posted for Perry (Post # 368)

You might PM ThatManFromTexas if you need more info / clarification on this one.

Hope that helps.

Allergic Reaction to Angles

If you use "AutoScale" the angle of any line will change, if time moves by. If you horizontally compress your charts, the angle of a trend line will change, but not the trend.

Angles are a concept that was used when charts were drawn on paper. With paper you can neither change horizontal nor vertical compression, so the concept of an angle makes sense. The angle has a meaning: It stands for momentum.

Since we started using computers and software alllowing for scaling, the idea of an angle is essentially nonsense. Instead of chasing angles, you could apply a simple momentum or ROC indicator. It is not affected by vertical and horizontal compression of the chart and conveys the same information.

PS: Don't blame Gann that he used angles. I guess his charts were paper prints.

I completely agree. It may be better to use slope instead.

Did you just diss the grid? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Moving average angle indicator

If you are still looking for a moving average angle indicator you can try the Jeffs Dots Package on page 4 (at the bottom) of the elite downloads. It contains 6 different moving average choices with optional paint bar study and audio alerts.......not to mention adjustable angles to boot !

I believe there are 3 different versions in the package.
