FRAMA is a type of AMA that uses fractal geometry to dynamically adjust its smoothing period to suit the changing price action over time.

Updated code to support new TV script engine: http://pastebin.com/tnM3Pt64.
Code published won't work, plz use the code from the above link.


Had to update the source again to support the latest script engine changes:
Here's the new code - http://pastebin.com/6xyjP2ST



Appreciate any comments/feedback,
Doesn't FRAMA have two indicators? An FC and SC?

Hi LazyBear,
According to etfhq's article,

"We selected a modified FRAMA with a 'FC' of 4, a 'SC' of 300 and a 'FRAMA' period of 126 as being the most effective fast FRAMA although the settings for a standard FRAMA will also produce excellent results."

(source: http://etfhq.com/blog/2010/10/09/frama-is-it-effective/)

Your version has 2 parameters ("period of fractal", and "W") instead of the 3 which etfhq refers to. Could you explain how your params relate to what etfhq describes?

Thanks,
Ed

Hi,
Thanks for all your great indicators.
Would it be possible for you to update the FRAMA to use the new ETF HQ modified version that they say is a lot better.

Sadly it seems this code doesn't seem to work anymore? Even when I load the chart which you posted with the indicator it doesn't load.

I love these non-standard technical indicators, man. I showed off your 4MACD last night in the daily discussion of http://reddit.com/r/BitcoinMarkets (giving you full credit). Keep it up.
