I'm currently reading Perry Kaufman's "Smart Trading" (1995) wherein he writes about "Smart Moving Average" that adjusts automatically to the price volatility, and this got my head spinning about the possibility of utilizing the same method in SF. As of now, the user had to input the param for the moving averages (e.g., MA(50)), but what if the MA can self correct without user intervention? Taking this principle further, what would keep other indicators from readjusting automatically if the trick can be pulled? Just a wishful thinking or a remote possibility? I'll keep you updated.

What's the formula?

I could probably code it in TradeStation.

inputs: period(10), filter(.1)
vars: noise(0), signal(0), diff(0),efratio(0),extlow(0), exthigh(0), smooth(1), fastened(.666), slowend(.0645), AMA(0);

diff = @AbsValue(close - close[1]);
if(currentbar < = period) then AMA = close;
if(currentbar > = period) then begin
signal = @AbsValue(close - close[period]);
noise = @Summation(diff,period);
efratio = signal/noise;
smooth = @Power(efratio * (fastend - slowend) + slowend,2);

AMA = AMA[1] + smooth * (close - AMA[1]);
if(AMA > AMA[1] and AMA[1] < AMA[2]) then extlow = AMA[1];
if(AMA < AMA[1] and AMA[1] > AMA[2]) then exthigh = AMA[1];
if(currentbar > period + 5) then begin
if(AMA > AMA[1] and AMA - extlow > filter) then buy on close;
if(AMA < AMA[1] and exthigh - AMA > filter) then sell on close;
