The Fractal Adaptive Moving Average (FRAMA) is an intelligent, adaptive moving average that was developed by John Ehlers. It takes the importance of price changes into account and follows price closely with significant moves while remaining flat if price ranges. The FRAMA takes advantage of the fact that markets are fractal and dynamically adjusts the lookback period based on this fractal geometry. The actual calculation is very elaborate and complicated. The FRAMA is often used in combination with other signals and analysis techniques.
