Ehler’s Fractal Adaptive Moving Average (FRAMA)

Ehler’s Fractal Adaptive Moving Average (FRAMA)

The Fractal Adaptive Moving Average FRAMA was developed by John Ehlers.

The indicator is constructed on the EMA exponential moving average algorithm, with a smoothing factor calculated on the basis of the current fractal dimension of the price.

The advantage of the indicator is the ability to track strong trend movements and market consolidation moments.

Interpretation Trading Signals And Rules:
The interpretation of the indicator is identical to the interpretation of moving averages
_ The FRAMA line is relatively "flat" in periods of horizontal range trading. It could therefore be used to avoid many false signals when it is desired to use a technique of the crossing of moving averages.
_ The FRAMA line has a greater reactivity to changes in trends than moving averages, making it possible to take a much earlier position on a breakout of the horizontal channel.

    Ciao Nicolas. Approfitto di questo spazio per chiederti se puoi aiutarmi. Avrei bisogno di un codice che sommi in tempo reale sul grafico tick by tick tutti i volumi in intraday che vengono scambiati su ogni livello di prezzo e che venga plottato sul grafico il livello dove in quel momento si stanno scambiando più contratti. Allego un esempio dove ho messo le frecce azzurre per indicare i volumi in real time plottati sul grafic.

    Hi Nicolas!,

    Thanks for providing code for the FRAMA! If I have understood correctly, one should enter both minimum MAperiod and maximum MAperiod for the adaptive process. I am uncertain if your code provides for this. If so could you tell which variables hold these values, please?

    Kind regards,
