Adaptive Trend Lines [MAMA and FAMA]Updated my previous algo on the Adaptive Trend lines, however I have added new functionalities and sorted out the settings.
You can now switch between normalized and non-normalized settings, the colors have also been updated and look much better.
The MAMA and FAMA
These indicators was originally developed by John F. Ehlers (Stocks & Commodities V. 19:10: MESA Adaptive Moving Averages). Everget wrote the initial functions for these in pine script. I have simply normalized the indicators and chosen to use the Laplace transformation instead of the hilbert transformation
How the Indicator Works:
The indicator employs a series of complex calculations, but we'll break it down into key steps to understand its functionality:
LaplaceTransform: Calculates the Laplace distribution for the given src input. The Laplace distribution is a continuous probability distribution, also known as the double exponential distribution. I use this because of the assymetrical return profile
MESA Period: The indicator calculates a MESA period, which represents the dominant cycle length in the price data. This period is continuously adjusted to adapt to market changes.
InPhase and Quadrature Components: The InPhase and Quadrature components are derived from the Hilbert Transform output. These components represent different aspects of the price's cyclical behavior.
Homodyne Discriminator: The Homodyne Discriminator is a phase-sensitive technique used to determine the phase and amplitude of a signal. It helps in detecting trend changes.
Alpha Calculation: Alpha represents the adaptive factor that adjusts the sensitivity of the indicator. It is based on the MESA period and the phase of the InPhase component. Alpha helps in dynamically adjusting the indicator's responsiveness to changes in market conditions.
MAMA and FAMA Calculation: The MAMA and FAMA values are calculated using the adaptive factor (alpha) and the input price data. These values are essentially adaptive moving averages that aim to capture the current trend more effectively than traditional moving averages.
But Omar, why would anyone want to use this?
The MAMA and FAMA lines offer benefits:
The indicator offers a distinct advantage over conventional moving averages due to its adaptive nature, which allows it to adjust to changing market conditions. This adaptability ensures that investors can stay on the right side of the trend, as the indicator becomes more responsive during trending periods and less sensitive in choppy or sideways markets.
One of the key strengths of this indicator lies in its ability to identify trends effectively by combining the MESA and MAMA techniques. By doing so, it efficiently filters out market noise, making it highly valuable for trend-following strategies. Investors can rely on this feature to gain clearer insights into the prevailing trends and make well-informed trading decisions.
This indicator is primarily suppoest to be used on the big timeframes to see which trend is prevailing, however I am not against someone using it on a timeframe below the 1D, just be careful if you are using this for modern portfolio theory, this is not suppoest to be a mid-term component, but rather a long term component that works well with proper use of detrended fluctuation analysis.
Dont hesitate to ask me if you have any questions
Again, I want to give credit to Everget and ChartPrime!
Code explanation as required by House Rules:

slowLimit = input.float(title='Slow Limit', step=0.01, defval=0.08, group = "Indicator Settings")
src = input(title='Source', defval=close, group = "Indicator Settings")
input.float: Used to create input fields for the user to set the fastLimit and slowLimit values.
input: General function to get user inputs, like the data source (close price) used for calculations.
norm_period = input.int(3, 'Normalization Period', 1, group = "Normalized Settings")
norm = input.bool(defval = true, title = "Use normalization", group = "Normalized Settings")
input.int: Creates an input field for the normalization period.
input.bool: Allows the user to toggle normalization on or off.
Color settings in the code:
col_up = input.color(#22ab94, group = "Color Settings")
col_dn = input.color(#f7525f, group = "Color Settings")
Constants and functions
var float PI = math.pi
laplace(src) =>
(0.5) * math.exp(-math.abs(src))
_computeComponent(src, mesaPeriodMult) =>
out = laplace(src) * mesaPeriodMult
out
_smoothComponent(src) =>
out = 0.2 * src + 0.8 * nz(src )
out
math.pi: Represents the mathematical constant π (pi).
laplace: A function that applies the Laplace transform to the source data.
_computeComponent: Computes a component of the data using the Laplace transform.
_smoothComponent: Smooths data by averaging the current value with the previous one (nz function is used to handle null values).
Alpha function:
_computeAlpha(src, fastLimit, slowLimit) =>
mesaPeriod = 0.0
mesaPeriodMult = 0.075 * nz(mesaPeriod ) + 0.54
...
alpha = math.max(fastLimit / deltaPhase, slowLimit)
out = alpha
out
_computeAlpha: Calculates the adaptive alpha value based on the fastLimit and slowLimit. This value is crucial for determining the MAMA and FAMA lines.
Calculating MAMA and FAMA:
mama = 0.0
mama := alpha * src + (1 - alpha) * nz(mama )
fama = 0.0
fama := alpha2 * mama + (1 - alpha2) * nz(fama )
Normalization:
lowest = ta.lowest(mama_fama_diff, norm_period)
highest = ta.highest(mama_fama_diff, norm_period)
normalized = (mama_fama_diff - lowest) / (highest - lowest) - 0.5
ta.lowest and ta.highest: Find the lowest and highest values of mama_fama_diff over the normalization period.
The oscillator is normalized to a range, making it easier to compare over different periods.
And finally, the plotting:
plot(norm == true ? normalized : na, style=plot.style_columns, color=col_wn, title = "mama_fama_diff Oscillator Normalized")
plot(norm == false ? mama_fama_diff : na, style=plot.style_columns, color=col_wnS, title = "mama_fama_diff Oscillator")

# MESA自適應移動平均線 (MAMA)

IchiMAMA (Experimental)Goichi Hosoda's "Ichimoku Kinkō Hyō" is a widely used Trend Following indicator and can be defined as a "system" rather than an indicator.
Published in the late 1960's, consisting of 5 lines.
TenkanSen (Conversion Line) = of the last 9 bars
KijunSen (Base Line) = of the last 26 bars
SenkouSpanA (Leading Span A) = Average of Tenkan&KijunSen shifted -> 26 bars
SenkouSpanB (Leading Span B) = of the last 52 bars
ChikouSpan (Lagging Span) = Price shifted <- 26 bars
On the other hand, Mesa Adaptive Moving Average developed by John Ehlers around early 2000's shows similarities with Hosoda's Tenkan and KijunSen using a different calculation method. For futher info: www.mesasoftware.com
I find MAMA superior to TenkanSen and KijunSen in terms of crossing signals.
Ichimoku:
Thus, decided to replace TenkanSen and KijunSen of regular Ichimoku with MAMA&FAMA of Ehlers and calculated SenkouSpanA accordingly. SenkouSpanB and ChikouSpan stays the same as per Ichimoku's logic. (Periods are 30 by default for cryptocurrencies. If stocks then 26)
IchiMAMA:
This is purely experimental and educational. Hope you'll like it :)
I'd like to thank @everget for MAMA&FAMA
and @KivancOzbilgic for Ichimoku Kinkō Hyō and Volume Based Colored Bars

Adaptive MA Difference constructor [lastguru]A complimentary indicator to my Adaptive MA constructor. It calculates the difference between the two MA lines (inspired by the Moving Average Difference (MAD) indicator by John F. Ehlers). You can then further smooth the resulting curve. The parameters and options are explained here:
The difference is normalized by dividing the difference by twice its Root mean square (RMS) over Slow MA length. Inverse Fisher Transform is then used to force the -1..1 range.
Same Postfilter options are provided as in my Adaptive Oscillator constructor:
Stochastic - Stochastic
Super Smooth Stochastic - Super Smooth Stochastic (part of MESA Stochastic ) by John F. Ehlers
Inverse Fisher Transform - Inverse Fisher Transform
Noise Elimination Technology - a simplified Kendall correlation algorithm "Noise Elimination Technology" by John F. Ehlers
Momentum - momentum (derivative)
Except for Inverse Fisher Transform, all Postfilter algorithms can have Length parameter. If it is not specified (set to 0), then the calculated Slow MA Length is used.

Adaptive MA constructor [lastguru]Adaptive Moving Averages are nothing new, however most of them use EMA as their MA of choice once the preferred smoothing length is determined. I have decided to make an experiment and separate length generation from smoothing, offering multiple alternatives to be combined. Some of the combinations are widely known, some are not. This indicator is based on my previously published public libraries and also serve as a usage demonstration for them. I will try to expand the collection (suggestions are welcome), however it is not meant as an encyclopaedic resource, so you are encouraged to experiment yourself: by looking on the source code of this indicator, I am sure you will see how trivial it is to use the provided libraries and expand them with your own ideas and combinations. I give no recommendation on what settings to use, but if you find some useful setting, combination or application ideas (or bugs in my code), I would be happy to read about them in the comments section.
The indicator works in three stages: Prefiltering, Length Adaptation and Moving Averages.
Prefiltering is a fast smoothing to get rid of high-frequency (2, 3 or 4 bar) noise.
Adaptation algorithms are roughly subdivided in two categories: classic Length Adaptations and Cycle Estimators (they are also implemented in separate libraries), all are selected in Adaptation dropdown. Length Adaptation used in the Adaptive Moving Averages and the Adaptive Oscillators try to follow price movements and accelerate/decelerate accordingly (usually quite rapidly with a huge range). Cycle Estimators, on the other hand, try to measure the cycle period of the current market, which does not reflect price movement or the rate of change (the rate of change may also differ depending on the cycle phase, but the cycle period itself usually changes slowly).
Chande (Price) - based on Chande's Dynamic Momentum Index (CDMI or DYMOI), which is dynamic RSI with this length
Chande (Volume) - a variant of Chande's algorithm, where volume is used instead of price
VIDYA - based on VIDYA algorithm. The period oscillates from the Lower Bound up (slow)
VIDYA-RS - based on Vitali Apirine's modification of VIDYA algorithm (he calls it Relative Strength Moving Average). The period oscillates from the Upper Bound down (fast)
Kaufman Efficiency Scaling - based on Efficiency Ratio calculation originally used in KAMA
Deviation Scaling - based on DSSS by John F. Ehlers
Median Average - based on Median Average Adaptive Filter by John F. Ehlers
Fractal Adaptation - based on FRAMA by John F. Ehlers
MESA MAMA Alpha - based on MESA Adaptive Moving Average by John F. Ehlers
MESA MAMA Cycle - based on MESA Adaptive Moving Average by John F. Ehlers, but unlike Alpha calculation, this adaptation estimates cycle period
Pearson Autocorrelation* - based on Pearson Autocorrelation Periodogram by John F. Ehlers
DFT Cycle* - based on Discrete Fourier Transform Spectrum estimator by John F. Ehlers
Phase Accumulation* - based on Dominant Cycle from Phase Accumulation by John F. Ehlers
Length Adaptation usually take two parameters: Bound From (lower bound) and To (upper bound). These are the limits for Adaptation values. Note that the Cycle Estimators marked with asterisks(*) are very computationally intensive, so the bounds should not be set much higher than 50, otherwise you may receive a timeout error (also, it does not seem to be a useful thing to do, but you may correct me if I'm wrong).
The Cycle Estimators marked with asterisks(*) also have 3 checkboxes: HP (Highpass Filter), SS (Super Smoother) and HW (Hann Window). These enable or disable their internal prefilters, which are recommended by their author - John F. Ehlers. I do not know, which combination works best, so you can experiment.
Chande's Adaptations also have 3 additional parameters: SD Length (lookback length of Standard deviation), Smooth (smoothing length of Standard deviation) and Power (exponent of the length adaptation - lower is smaller variation). These are internal tweaks for the calculation.
Length Adaptaton section offer you a choice of Moving Average algorithms. Most of the Adaptations are originally used with EMA, so this is a good starting point for exploration.
SMA - Simple Moving Average
RMA - Running Moving Average
EMA - Exponential Moving Average
HMA - Hull Moving Average
VWMA - Volume Weighted Moving Average
2-pole Super Smoother - 2-pole Super Smoother by John F. Ehlers
3-pole Super Smoother - 3-pole Super Smoother by John F. Ehlers
Filt11 -a variant of 2-pole Super Smoother with error averaging for zero-lag response by John F. Ehlers
Triangle Window - Triangle Window Filter by John F. Ehlers
Hamming Window - Hamming Window Filter by John F. Ehlers
Hann Window - Hann Window Filter by John F. Ehlers
Lowpass - removes cyclic components shorter than length (Price - Highpass)
DSSS - Derivation Scaled Super Smoother by John F. Ehlers
There are two Moving Averages that are drown on the chart, so length for both needs to be selected. If no Adaptation is selected ( None option), you can set Fast Length and Slow Length directly. If an Adaptation is selected, then Cycle multiplier can be selected for Fast and Slow MA.
More information on the algorithms is given in the code for the libraries used. I am also very grateful to other TradingView community members (they are also mentioned in the library code) without whom this script would not have been possible.

DominantCycleCollection of Dominant Cycle estimators. Length adaptation used in the Adaptive Moving Averages and the Adaptive Oscillators try to follow price movements and accelerate/decelerate accordingly (usually quite rapidly with a huge range). Cycle estimators, on the other hand, try to measure the cycle period of the current market, which does not reflect price movement or the rate of change (the rate of change may also differ depending on the cycle phase, but the cycle period itself usually changes slowly). This collection may become encyclopaedic, so if you have any working cycle estimator, drop me a line in the comments below. Suggestions are welcome. Currently included estimators are based on the work of John F. Ehlers

TEMA/MAMA CrossThis is a strategy based on the TEMA and Ehler's MAMA moving averages. Crosses of the fast and slow TEMA are commonly used for entry and exit strategies. The Ehler's Mesa Adaptive Moving Average is a trend-following price indicator that uses a Hilbert Transform. Having plotted both TEMA and eMAMA side-by-side for some time, I noticed a pattern where the fastTEMA crossed over the eFAMA (eFAMA is the Ehler's MAMA following/slow MA) prior to a price increase. This is a strategy to test that observation.
The strategy (at present) only does long entries. It enters long when the fastTEMA crosses up over the (slow) eFAMA. It uses a traditional exit when the fastTEMA crosses below the slowTEMA. I have tested this on several tokens on 1hr charts using a fastTEMA length of 13. Play with it on different charts and different lengths to see how it works for you.

[blackcat] L2 Ehlers MAMALevel: 2
Background
John F. Ehlers introuced MESA Adaptive Moving Average-a.k.a "MAMA" in his "Rocket Science for Traders" chapter 17. Forgive the whimsy of the name Dr. Ehlers attached to this unique indicator, but with that name he is sure you will always remember it, like KAMA and VIDYA.
Function
blackcat L2 Ehlers MESA Adaptive Moving Average-a.k.a "MAMA" is used to follow trend. The concept of MAMA is to relate the phase rate of change to the EMA alpha, thus making the EMA adaptive. The cycle phase goes from 0 through 360 degrees in each cycle. The phase is continuous, but is usually drawn with the snap back to 0 degrees as the beginning of each cycle. Thus the phase rate of change is 360 degrees per cycle. The shorter the cycle, the faster the phase rate of change. For example, a 36-bar cycle has a phase rate of change of 10 degrees per bar, while a 10-bar cycle has a rate of change of 36 degrees per bar. The cycle periods tend to be longer when the market is in a Trend Mode.
The cycle phase is computed from the arctangent of the ratio of the Quadrature component to the Inphase component. Dr. Ehlers obtain the phase rate of change values by taking the difference of successive phase measurements. The arctangent function only measures phase over a half cycle, from -90 degrees to +90 degrees. Since the phase measurement snaps back every half cycle, a huge negative rate change of phase every half cycle results from the computation of the rate change of phase. Measured negative rate changes of phase can also occur when the market is in a Trend Mode. Any negative rate change of phase is theoretically impossible because phase must advance as time increases. Dr. Ehlers therefore limit all rate change of phase to be no less than unity.
Key Signal
Smooth --> 4 bar WMA w/ 1 bar lag
Detrender --> The amplitude response of a minimum-length HT can be improved by adjusting the filter coefficients by
trial and error. HT does not allow DC component at zero frequency for transformation. So, Detrender is used to remove DC component/ trend component.
Q1 --> Quadrature phase signal
I1 --> In-phase signal
Period --> Dominant Cycle in bars
SmoothPeriod --> Period with complex averaging
alpha ---> coefficient
MAMA ---> MESA Adaptive Moving Average-a.k.a "MAMA"
FAMA ---> slow line of MAMA

Remarks
The 13th script for Blackcat1402 John F. Ehlers Week publication.
Readme
In real life, I am a prolific inventor. I have successfully applied for more than 60 international and regional patents in the past 12 years. But in the past two years or so, I have tried to transfer my creativity to the development of trading strategies. Tradingview is the ideal platform for me. I am selecting and contributing some of the hundreds of scripts to publish in Tradingview community. Welcome everyone to interact with me to discuss these interesting pine scripts.
The scripts posted are categorized into 5 levels according to my efforts or manhours put into these works.
Level 1 : interesting script snippets or distinctive improvement from classic indicators or strategy. Level 1 scripts can usually appear in more complex indicators as a function module or element.
Level 2 : composite indicator/strategy. By selecting or combining several independent or dependent functions or sub indicators in proper way, the composite script exhibits a resonance phenomenon which can filter out noise or fake trading signal to enhance trading confidence level.
Level 3 : comprehensive indicator/strategy. They are simple trading systems based on my strategies. They are commonly containing several or all of entry signal, close signal, stop loss, take profit, re-entry, risk management, and position sizing techniques. Even some interesting fundamental and mass psychological aspects are incorporated.
Level 4 : script snippets or functions that do not disclose source code. Interesting element that can reveal market laws and work as raw material for indicators and strategies. If you find Level 1~2 scripts are helpful, Level 4 is a private version that took me far more efforts to develop.
Level 5 : indicator/strategy that do not disclose source code. private version of Level 3 script with my accumulated script processing skills or a large number of custom functions. I had a private function library built in past two years. Level 5 scripts use many of them to achieve private trading strategy.

RK's 07 ∴ Moving Average Ribbon with Momentum Adjusted by DGTHello folks!
In my search for new ways to get faster and better market responses, I found this brilliant Indicator here on Trading View.
I rewrite all the code with my own functions and styles.
So... This is my adaptation to excellent script "Momentum adjusted Moving Average by DGT" from the user dgtrd
In dgtrd's words: "A brand new Moving Average, calculated using Momentum, Acceleration and Probability (Psychological Effect).
Momentum adjusted Moving Average( MaMA ) is an indicator that measures Price Action by taking into consideration not only Price movements but also its Momentum, Acceleration and Probability.
MaMA , provides faster responses comparing to the regular Moving Average"

Ehlers Mother Of Adaptive Moving Averages [CC]The Mother Of Adaptive Moving Averages was created by John Ehlers (Rocket Science For Traders pgs 182-183) and this is definitely my favorite Ehlers moving average script. This works as a trend indicator and a typical moving average. When the mama is above the fama then the stock is in an uptrend and vice versa. Of course it is also good when the price is above the fama and mama lines. Buy when the indicator line is green and sell when it is red.
Let me know if there are other indicator scripts you would like to see me publish or if you want something custom done!

MAMA FAMA KAMA.. chameleon 🎵
Uses Kaufmann's Efficiency Ratio to generate adaptive inputs for Ehler's MAMA/FAMA. Alphas from the Hilbert transform are then used in place for the KAMA calculation.

MESA Adaptive Moving AverageIntro
One of Ehlers most well-known indicators! I've seen many variations of this on TradingView, however, none seem to be true to the original released by Ehlers himself.
I've taken it upon myself to simply translate the MAMA into Pinescript, instead of re-writing like some others have done.
You can use it as a very effective & adaptive moving average with other signals or
as a standalone signal.
In the case that you're going to use it for signals and not simple technical trading (non-quantitative),
I've also added a threshold parameter to filter out weak signals.
My MAMA indicator is different from others in very simple ways - I don't use the nz() command, which sets all "Not a Number" values to 0. In others' scripts, you immediately load the indicator with several 0 values,
causing a slight lag in future calculations since this code is recursive (refers to previous values it generated).
In my version, I simply wait until the script has access to all the bar data it needs, instead of instantly performing calculations and
setting erroneous values to 0. In this case, we start with the correct values (or closer to correct).
If you want to compare this indicator the current most popular MAMA by LazyBear, you'll notice it often gives buy and sell crosses one bar earlier than theirs.
Setting Parameters
Source - the data series to perform calculations on. (Initially, Ehlers himself favored hl/2, but conceded that there isn't empirical benefit over close.)
Fast Limit - controls how quickly the MAMA will "ratchet up" fast price action. (Higher values are faster)
Slow Limit - controls how closely the FAMA will follow the MAMA. (Again, higher is faster. You typically want the FAMA to be slower though.)
Crossover Threshold - simple error thresholding to limit the number of weak trade signals. (Lower means lower tolerance)
Show Crosses? - show/hide the arrows at moving average crosses

MAMA by EHLERSMESA Adaptive Moving Average aka: Mother of Adaptive Moving Averages:
The MESA Adaptive Moving Average ( MAMA ) adapts to price movement in an
entirely new and unique way. The adapation is based on the rate change of phase as
measured by the Hilbert Transform Discriminator I have previously described.1
The advantage of this method of adaptation is that it features a fast attack average and a
slow decay average so that composite average rapidly ratchets behind price changes
and holds the average value until the next ratchet occurs. The action of MAMA is
shown in Figure 1. Since the average fallback is slow I can build trading systems that

Consider FAMA (Following AMA) as the signal.
Here are some of the options:
