Jurik Composite Fractal Behavior (CFB) on EMA [Loxx]Jurik Composite Fractal Behavior (CFB) on EMA is an exponential moving average with adaptive price trend duration inputs. This purpose of this indicator is to introduce the formulas for the calculation Composite Fractal Behavior. As you can see from the chart above, price reacts wildly to shifts in volatility--smoothing out substantially while riding a volatility wave and cutting sharp corners when volatility drops. Notice the chop zone on BTC around August 2021, this was a time of extremely low relative volatility.
This indicator uses three previous indicators from my public scripts. These are:
JCFBaux Volatility
Jurik Filter
Jurik Volty
The CFB is also related to the following indicator
Jurik Velocity ("smoother moment")
Now let's dive in...
What is Composite Fractal Behavior (CFB)?
All around you mechanisms adjust themselves to their environment. From simple thermostats that react to air temperature to computer chips in modern cars that respond to changes in engine temperature, r.p.m.'s, torque, and throttle position. It was only a matter of time before fast desktop computers applied the mathematics of self-adjustment to systems that trade the financial markets.
Unlike basic systems with fixed formulas, an adaptive system adjusts its own equations. For example, start with a basic channel breakout system that uses the highest closing price of the last N bars as a threshold for detecting breakouts on the up side. An adaptive and improved version of this system would adjust N according to market conditions, such as momentum, price volatility or acceleration.
Since many systems are based directly or indirectly on cycles, another useful measure of market condition is the periodic length of a price chart's dominant cycle, (DC), that cycle with the greatest influence on price action.
The utility of this new DC measure was noted by author Murray Ruggiero in the January '96 issue of Futures Magazine. In it. Mr. Ruggiero used it to adaptive adjust the value of N in a channel breakout system. He then simulated trading 15 years of D-Mark futures in order to compare its performance to a similar system that had a fixed optimal value of N. The adaptive version produced 20% more profit!
This DC index utilized the popular MESA algorithm (a formulation by John Ehlers adapted from Burg's maximum entropy algorithm, MEM). Unfortunately, the DC approach is problematic when the market has no real dominant cycle momentum, because the mathematics will produce a value whether or not one actually exists! Therefore, we developed a proprietary indicator that does not presuppose the presence of market cycles. It's called CFB (Composite Fractal Behavior) and it works well whether or not the market is cyclic.
CFB examines price action for a particular fractal pattern, categorizes them by size, and then outputs a composite fractal size index. This index is smooth, timely and accurate
Essentially, CFB reveals the length of the market's trending action time frame. Long trending activity produces a large CFB index and short choppy action produces a small index value. Investors have found many applications for CFB which involve scaling other existing technical indicators adaptively, on a bar-to-bar basis.
What is Jurik Volty used in the Juirk Filter?
One of the lesser known qualities of Juirk smoothing is that the Jurik smoothing process is adaptive. "Jurik Volty" (a sort of market volatility ) is what makes Jurik smoothing adaptive. The Jurik Volty calculation can be used as both a standalone indicator and to smooth other indicators that you wish to make adaptive.
What is the Jurik Moving Average?
Have you noticed how moving averages add some lag (delay) to your signals? ... especially when price gaps up or down in a big move, and you are waiting for your moving average to catch up? Wait no more! JMA eliminates this problem forever and gives you the best of both worlds: low lag and smooth lines.
Ideally, you would like a filtered signal to be both smooth and lag-free. Lag causes delays in your trades, and increasing lag in your indicators typically result in lower profits. In other words, late comers get what's left on the table after the feast has already begun.
Modifications and improvements
1. Jurik's original calculation for CFB only allowed for depth lengths of 24, 48, 96, and 192. For theoretical purposes, this indicator allows for up to 20 different depth inputs to sample volatility. These depth lengths are
2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 96, 128, 192, 256, 384, 512, 768, 1024, 1536
Including these additional length inputs is arguable useless, but they are are included for completeness of the algorithm.
2. The result of the CFB calculation is forced to be an integer greater than or equal to 1.
3. The result of the CFB calculation is double filtered using an advanced, (and adaptive itself) filtering algorithm called the Jurik Filter. This filter and accompanying internal algorithm are discussed above.

JCFBaux Volatility [Loxx]JCFBaux is a volatility indicator that is used to detect early volatility spikes. To be used in conjunction with other momentum indicators for confluence. A Jurik-filtered signal line is included to provide a cutoff for when volatility is low. The JCFBaux is also used to calculate Jurik's "Composite Fractal Behavior". This is a directionless indicator. Many advanced traders will use JCFBaux as a drop in replacement for ADX DI.

Jurik-Filtered, Gann HiLo Activator [Loxx]Jurik-Filtered, Gann HiLo Activator is a Gann HiLo activator that has been smoothed using Jurik Filtering to reduce noise and better identify trending markets.
What is Gann HiLo
The HiLo Activator study is a trend-following indicator introduced by Robert Krausz as part of the Gann Swing trading strategy. In addition to indicating the current trend direction, this can be used as both entry signal and trailing stop.
Here is how the HiLo Activator is calculated:
1. The system calculates the moving averages of the high and low prices over the last several candles. By default, the average is calculated using the last three candles.
2. If the close price falls below the average low or rises above the average high, the system plots the opposite moving average. For example, if the price crosses above the average high, the system will plot the average low. If the price crosses below the average low afterward, the system will stop plotting the average low and will start plotting the average high, and so forth.
The plot of the HiLo Activator thus consists of sections on the top and bottom of the price plot. The sections on the bottom signify bullish trending conditions. Vice versa, those on the top signify the bearish conditions.

Adaptive, Jurik-Filtered, JMA/DWMA MACD [Loxx]Adaptive, Jurik-Filtered, JMA/DWMA MACD is MACD oscillator with a twist. The traditional calculation of MACD is the between two EMAs of price. This traditional approach yields a very noisy and lagged signal. To solve this problem, JMA/DWMA MACD uses the difference between adaptive Juirk-Filtered price and adaptive DWMA to yield a marked improvement over traditional MACD.
What is JMA / DWMA oscillator (MACD)?
Of all the different combinations of moving average filters to use for a MACD oscillator, we prefer using the JMA - DWMA combination.
JMA is ideal for the fast moving average line because it is quick to respond to reversals, is smooth and can be set to have no overshoot. DWMA (double weighted moving average) is ideal for the slower line as is tends to delay reversing direction until JMA crosses it.

What is an adaptive cycle, and what is Ehlers Autocorrelation Periodogram Algorithm?
From his Ehlers' book Cycle Analytics for Traders Advanced Technical Trading Concepts by John F. Ehlers , 2013, page 135:
"Adaptive filters can have several different meanings. For example, Perry Kaufman’s adaptive moving average ( KAMA ) and Tushar Chande’s variable index dynamic average ( VIDYA ) adapt to changes in volatility . By definition, these filters are reactive to price changes, and therefore they close the barn door after the horse is gone.The adaptive filters discussed in this chapter are the familiar Stochastic , relative strength index ( RSI ), commodity channel index ( CCI ), and band-pass filter.The key parameter in each case is the look-back period used to calculate the indicator. This look-back period is commonly a fixed value. However, since the measured cycle period is changing, it makes sense to adapt these indicators to the measured cycle period. When tradable market cycles are observed, they tend to persist for a short while.Therefore, by tuning the indicators to the measure cycle period they are optimized for current conditions and can even have predictive characteristics.
The dominant cycle period is measured using the Autocorrelation Periodogram Algorithm. That dominant cycle dynamically sets the look-back period for the indicators. I employ my own streamlined computation for the indicators that provide smoother and easier to interpret outputs than traditional methods. Further, the indicator codes have been modified to remove the effects of spectral dilation.This basically creates a whole new set of indicators for your trading arsenal."

Jurik-Filtered, Adaptive Laguerre PPO [Loxx]Jurik-Filtered, Adaptive Laguerre PPO is an indicator used to find reversals. Smoothing with a Jurik Filter reduces noise and better identifies reversal points.
What is Laguerre Filter?
The Adaptive Laguerre is based on the Laguerre filter, described by John Ehlers in his paper “Time Warp – Without Space Travel”. It applies a variable gamma factor, based on how well the filter is tracking previous price movement. As with other adaptive moving averages, the Adaptive Laguerre tracks trending markets closely but will see less changes in range-bound markets.
The Adaptive Laguerre filter allows for an adjustment of the simple Laguerre filter. When price moves away from the filter, it becomes faster. When price moves sideward, the filter gets slower. Accordingly, this indicator belongs to the same class of moving average as the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA). It similar to the Volatility Index Dynamic Average (VIDYA) developed by Tushar Chande. The Adaptive Laguerre filter is smoother than the VIDYA and will adjust slower to price action after consolidations.

Adaptive, Jurik-Filtered, Floating RSI [Loxx]Adaptive, Jurik-Filtered, Floating RSI is an adaptive RSI indicator that smooths the RSI signal with a Jurik Filter.
This indicator contains three different types of RSI. They are following.
Wilders' RSI:
The Relative Strength Index ( RSI ) is a well versed momentum based oscillator which is used to measure the speed (velocity) as well as the change (magnitude) of directional price movements. Essentially RSI , when graphed, provides a visual mean to monitor both the current, as well as historical, strength and weakness of a particular market. The strength or weakness is based on closing prices over the duration of a specified trading period creating a reliable metric of price and momentum changes. Given the popularity of cash settled instruments (stock indexes) and leveraged financial products (the entire field of derivatives); RSI has proven to be a viable indicator of price movements.
RSX RSI:
RSI is a very popular technical indicator, because it takes into consideration market speed, direction and trend uniformity. However, the its widely criticized drawback is its noisy (jittery) appearance. The Jurk RSX retains all the useful features of RSI , but with one important exception: the noise is gone with no added lag.
Rapid RSI:
Rapid RSI Indicator, from Ian Copsey's article in the October 2006 issue of Stocks & Commodities magazine.
RapidRSI resembles Wilder's RSI , but uses a SMA instead of a WilderMA for internal smoothing of price change accumulators.
This indicator also uses adaptive cycles to calculate input lengths

Adaptive Jurik Filter MACD [Loxx]Adaptive Jurik Filter MACD uses Jurik Volty and Adaptive Double Jurik Filter Moving Average (AJFMA) to derive Jurik Filter smoothed volatility.
What is MACD?
Moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is a trend-following momentum indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages of a security’s price. The MACD is calculated by subtracting the 26-period exponential moving average (EMA) from the 12-period EMA.
The result of that calculation is the MACD line. A nine-day EMA of the MACD called the "signal line," is then plotted on top of the MACD line, which can function as a trigger for buy and sell signals. Traders may buy the security when the MACD crosses above its signal line and sell—or short—the security when the MACD crosses below the signal line. Moving average convergence divergence (MACD) indicators can be interpreted in several ways, but the more common methods are crossovers, divergences, and rapid rises/falls.

Adaptive Look-back/Volatility Phase Change Index on Jurik [Loxx]Adaptive Look-back, Adaptive Volatility Phase Change Index on Jurik is a Phase Change Index but with adaptive length and volatility inputs to reduce phase change noise and better identify trends. This is an invese indicator which means that small values on the oscillator indicate bullish sentiment and higher values on the oscillator indicate bearish sentiment
What is the Phase Change Index?
Based on the M.H. Pee's TASC article "Phase Change Index".
Prices at any time can be up, down, or unchanged. A period where market prices remain relatively unchanged is referred to as a consolidation. A period that witnesses relatively higher prices is referred to as an uptrend, while a period of relatively lower prices is called a downtrend.
The Phase Change Index (PCI) is an indicator designed specifically to detect changes in market phases.
This indicator is made as he describes it with one deviation: if we follow his formula to the letter then the "trend" is inverted to the actual market trend. Because of that an option to display inverted (and more logical) values is added.

When tradable market cycles are observed, they tend to persist for a short while.Therefore, by tuning the indicators to the measure cycle period they are optimized for current conditions and can even have predictive characteristics.
The dominant cycle period is measured using the Autocorrelation Periodogram Algorithm. That dominant cycle dynamically sets the look-back period for the indicators. I employ my own streamlined computation for the indicators that provide smoother and easier to interpret outputs than traditional methods. Further, the indicator codes have been modified to remove the effects of spectral dilation.This basically creates a whole new set of indicators for your trading arsenal."
Included
-Your choice of length input calculation, either fixed or adaptive cycle
-Invert the signal to match the trend
-Bar coloring to paint the trend
Happy trading!

Jurik RSX on JMA [Loxx]Jurik RSX on JMA is identical to indicator RSI RSX, except that price data is pre-smoothed by JMA. Doing so extends the range of RSX and produces fewer micro reversals. That lends itself to advanced analysis. Output Range: -100 to +100.
What is RSX?
RSI is a very popular technical indicator, because it takes into consideration market speed, direction and trend uniformity. However, the its widely criticized drawback is its noisy (jittery) appearance. The Jurk RSX retains all the useful features of RSI , but with one important exception: the noise is gone with no added lag.
What is JMA?
Have you noticed how moving averages add some lag (delay) to your signals? ... especially when price gaps up or down in a big move, and you are waiting for your moving average to catch up? Wait no more! JMA eliminates this problem forever and gives you the best of both worlds: low lag and smooth lines.
Ideally, you would like a filtered signal to be both smooth and lag-free. Lag causes delays in your trades, and increasing lag in your indicators typically result in lower profits. In other words, late comers get what's left on the table after the feast has already begun.
That's why investors, banks and institutions worldwide ask for the Jurik Research Moving Average (JMA). You may apply it just as you would any other popular moving average. However, JMA's improved timing and smoothness will astound you.
Included
-Color bars
-Customize inputs

Custom Moving AveragesThis is a useful indicator which allows you to plot multiple fully customized Moving Averages. Here are some of its features:
Ability to fine-tune a wide variety of moving averages: smoothing type, periods, offsets, timeframes, sources, thickness, line/label color and text color.
Descriptive labels to avoid misreading.
Simple and well-organized Input Tab.

MA MTF Cross StrategyStrategy Introduction
This multi-timeframe strategy generates buy and sell entries based on two Moving Averages’ cross with an option to turn on trend direction confirmation through 3rd Moving Average selection. While all three moving averages can be selected from the following list:
SMA
EMA
DEMA
TEMA
LRC
WMA
MF
VAMA
TMA
HMA
JMA
Kijun v2
EDSMA
McGinley
Only long trades are enabled currently
Default Settings
I've set the default selection to the perfect options for 1D timeframe. You can modify all MAs selections and their lengths according to your selected timeframes.
Following default settings are used:
Heiken Ashi Candles are selected by default as source
1st Moving Average selection is set to LRC (Linear Regression Curve)
Length of 1st Moving Average is set to 50
2nd Moving Average is set to EDSMA (Ehlers Deviation-Scaled Moving Average)
Length of 2nd Moving Average is set to 30
3rd Moving Average is set to HMA (Hull Moving Average)
Length of 3rd Moving Average is set to 200
Uptrend direction confirmation through 3rd Moving Average is set to false by default
Start date is set to start from 2013
Backtesting can also be done selecting %age of equity
Suggestions for Usage
Mostly winning trades by set defaults have no prominent drawdown so losing trades can be abolished with Stoploss. Would soon add Stoploss and Takeprofit options in next version. Also, if you want an alerts version of it then just comment below and would publish it later. I’ve found this strategy useful on 1D timeframe with described default settings but multiple Mas selections can be explored further.

Jurik Moving Average//Sup TV. This script is inspired by (and dedicated to) closure of sales (today, Oct 20 '21) of the famous Jurik Research.
...
Jurik Research, the real people who been doing real things by using the real instruments, while many others been reading books "How to become a billionaire in 2 days", watching 5687 hours videos of how to use RSI, and studying+applying machine learning to everything cuz suddenly it became trendy xD
...
This is my remake of the original Jurik Moving Average (JMA) based on all the info I managed to get my hands on, some stuff is dated back to 2008 or smth.
The whole point of this filter, the point missed by other attempts of its remakes even posted there on TV, is that it takes into account volatility and adjusts its speed based on it.
Think about it as an EMA, where the alpha parameter is dynamic.
Now, by all means I'm not claiming that's this is the perfect replica of the original algo. I've tested it a lot, looks like it's working legit...
But we all can see together whether it's legit or nah, besides, the official sales are closed since today, you feel me?
...
@everget, does it differs from yours closed one?

Multiple Moving Averages for Heikin Ashi I want to give credits to @QuantNomad, i got the heikin ashi part of the script from this open script /0iKy7lyG-QuantNomad-Heikin-Ashi-PSAR-Strategy/;
and to the other guy that provided a 17 type of moving average script open source but i forgot his name, if someone remember please tell me.
My idea was to see how the different types of moving averages behaves in a Heinkin Ashi chart, you can change to more than 15 types of Moving Average and use it the way you want it.
For the source of the moving averages i used a simple moving average of 1 period using the high of the heikin ashi candle, low of it and divided by 2 as the source of the different types of moving averages.
Different types of Moving Averages
Moving Average Types
SMA ---> Simple
WMA ---> Weighted
VWMA ---> Volume Weighted
EMA ---> Exponential
DEMA ---> Double EMA
ALMA ---> Arnaud Legoux
HMA ---> Hull MA
SMMA ---> Smoothed
LSMA ---> Least Squares
KAMA ---> Kaufman Adaptive
TEMA ---> Triple EMA
ZLEMA ---> Zero Lag
FRAMA ---> Fractal Adaptive
VIDYA ---> Variable Index Dynamic Average
JMA ---> Jurik Moving Average
T3 ---> Tillson
TRIMA ---> Triangular
The type of moving average you select will appear in a separated chart with Heikin Ashi candles, like in the image above.

MA+MA+ is a multi time frame moving average indicator with more than a dozen different moving averages (like KAMA, VAMA, JMA, HMA and much more).
More moving averages will be added on every update, hence Follow me to get notified.
MA+ Supports automatic (AUTO in settings) time frame multiplier. For example, if you set 'Auto Resolution Multiplier' to 6, and your base chart is 5 minutes, the moving averages will plot at 5 * 6 = 30 minutes.
You can still use 'User Defined' to use your own time frame without using the multiplier.
Use higher time frame than the base chart time frame to avoid repainting.
Default multiplier for higher time frame is 2.
Supports Signals 1 (rising MA) or -1 (falling MA) to attach to another indicator.
Bars are not colored by default.
Just for this great community, You can request in the comments other moving averages that do not exists in MA+.

Jsa Moving Average [CC]The Jsa Moving Average was created by George R. Arrington, Ph .D. (Stocks & Commodities V. 11:10 (427-431)) and it is an extremely simple formula but has very many great uses. For one thing it acts as support and resistance levels and it also acts like a trailing stop. It gives a wide enough berth during extended up or down trends to let you ride the wave up or down and when it gets close to the price it means that it is a choppy market. Buy when the indicator line is green and sell when it turns red.
Let me know if you would like to see me publish other indicators or if you want something custom done!
Note: I'm republishing this because the original script couldn't be found in searches so this will fix that.

SSL HybridThis script is designed for the NNFX Method, so it is recommended for Daily charts only.
Tried to implement a few VP NNFX Rules
This script has a SSL / Baseline (you can choose between the SSL or MA), a secondary SSL for continiuation trades and a third SSL for exit trades.
Alerts added for Baseline entries, SSL2 continuations, Exits.
Baseline has a Keltner Channel setting for "in zone" Gray Candles
Added "Candle Size > 1 ATR" Diamonds from my old script with the criteria of being within Baseline ATR range.

Baseline-C [ID: AC-P]The "AC-P" version of jiehonglim's NNFX Baseline script is my personal customized version of the NNFX Baseline concept as part of the NNFX Algorithm stack/structure for 1D Trend Trading for Forex. Everget's JMA implementation is used for the baseline smoothing method, with optional ATR bands at 1.0x and 1.5x from the baseline.
NNFX = No Nonsense Forex
Baseline = Component of the NNFX Algorithm that consists of a single moving average
Baseline ---> Meant to be used in conjunction with ATR/C1/C2/Vol Indicator/Exit Indicator as per NNFX Algorithm setup/structure. C1 is 1st Confirmation Indicator, C2 is 2nd Confirmation Indicator.
JMA (Jurik Moving Average) is used for the baseline and slow baseline.
A slow baseline option is included, but disabled by default.
The faint orange/purple lines are 1.0x/1.5x ATR from the Baseline, and are what I use as potential TP/SL targets or to evaluate when to stay out of a trade (chop/missed entry/exit/other/ATR breach), depending on the trade setup (in conjunction with C1/C2/Vol Indicator/Exit Indicator)
This script is heavily based upon jiehonglim's NNFX Baseline script for signaling, barcoloring, and ATR.
SSL Channel option included but disabled by default (Erwinbeckers SSL component)
POC (Point of Control) from Volume Profile is included/enabled by default for both the current timeframe and 12HR timeframe
03.freeman's InfoPanel Divergence Indicator was used a reference to replace the current/previous ATR information infopanel/info draw from jiehonglim's script. I'm not sure whether I like the previous way ATR info was displayed vs how I have it currently, but it's something that is completely optional:
Specifically: I am tuning this baseline/indicator for 1D trading as part of the NNFX system, for Forex.
DO NOT USE THIS INDICATOR WITHOUT PROPER TUNING/ADJUSTMENT for your timeframe and asset class.
Note about lack of alerts:
Alerts for baseline crosses (and other crosses) have been purposefully omitted for this version upon initial publication. While getting alerts for baseline crosses under certain conditions/filtered conditions that eliminate low-importance signals and crossover whipsaw would be great, it's something I'm still looking into.
SPECIFICALLY: There are entry, exit, take profit, and continuation signal components in relation to the Baseline to the rest of the NNFX Algorithm stack (ATR/C1/C2/Vol Indicator/Exit Indicator), including but limited to the "1 candle rule" and the "7 candle rule" as per NNFX.
Implementing alerts that are significant that also factor in these rules while reducing alert spam/false signals would be ideal, but it's also the HTF/Daily chart - visually, entry/exit/continuation signal alignment is easy to spot when trading 1D - alerts may be redundant/a pursuit in diminishing returns (for now).
