again @Fat Tails !

Yes, indeed the paint bar study that you created for me is exactly what I was hoping for. Here is an interesting note though. The other updated Heiken Ashe view that you created is, in my view, so pure and so visually appealing that it will be hard to remove it from my screen real estate. In the process of review and revise, which is constant with me, I find that your contributions continuously improve my view.

From the first day here on futures.io (formerly BMT), you have been a wise and prolific resource for me. I've gained from your perspective and you indicator contributions dominate my screens. Here is the question:

Beyond gratitude what might I do to express my appreciation to you?

@wldman: Don't worry and enjoy your life.

Hi wldman,

I'm curious about your use of two oscillators. What different information are you gaining from them that makes both necessary?

Interesting....

@futuretrader

is that I am trying to simplify this method as we type and was thinking that same thing. This method on NT was sort of cobbled together. I was transitioning from Wave 59 to NT and many items available on W59 are not on NT. Add to that the idea that some of the W59 indicators where slightly flawed in either design or application and what you have can be a little bit of a mess.

The review and revision process, is right now, looking at the non-colinearity of the components from a mechanical perspective. That is to say...is each displayed indicator based on different math. I have not been hurt to bad because my approach is somewhat discretionary using the display as a visual reference or landmark if you will...turn left after the river and before the large trees on the left...rivers and trees are in general universally recognized.

Happy to return to this but a brief explanation is that I'm using Heiken Ashi to color bars and make a trend both more persistent and more visible. The adaptive cci is something that I use perhaps in a non-typical way most of the time but as it was intended to measure the difference between typical price and in this case an adaptive moving average of prices. I'm not generally looking at overbought or oversold or for divergence, but I do from time to time benefit from seeing that. Maybe the way to describe my use is as relative strength of the prevailing trend?

If guys care, I can describe that in more detail.

The other 2nd panel view that might look like an oscillator is a component of something called PBFSqueeze. It looks like a John Carter Squeeze but it is not based on that in any way except for visually. So the histo in that is painted based on a Gaussian filter...a pretty interesting one imo. I use that for momentum.

Did I hit on what you where asking about? Thanks for asking btw, as I believe in providing an explanation is one area that we can see things from a different perspective and get better. Happy to go deeper with describing my hallucination if you point me at what you want me to explain. DB

Have played around a little to add some smoothing to the Heiken-Ashi Candles, here is the result. The smoothing is deactivated per default, but you can now select between 4 options

- Dan Valcu
- Sylvain Vervoort
- Dan Valcu smoothed
- Sylvain Vervoort smoothed

I have included a median, a mode and another 27 moving averages for smoothing. You can build a whole lot of trendfilters from those. Below are some examples:

The indicator from post #187 has a minor bug. The smoothing does not work with Butterworth, Gauss and Supersmoother Filters because they were not called correctly. I have now modified the indicator. You will find it attached.

I will also try to get the original indicator replaced or removed.

@wldman I noticed on your acci you have just 2 colors on the histo, while the one I have leaves a color for zero line neutral. So if it is below the zero line but rising or above the zero line and falling it is the same color. I was wondering if you or anyone else would know how to make it so it is just 1 color for rising and 1 for falling. Sorry in advance im not that great with indicators.

Two days back in the saddle...

before the summer soiree continues with Boy Scout Camp. Looking forward to being back but not so much as to say that I miss the daily grind....yet. Looks to be setting up short here, but I am very cautious. If I trade today and tomorrow it will likely be mini or micro.
