# Bill Williams Averages SMMA

549 6
This indicator calculates 3 Smoothed moving average for default values of
13, 8 and 5 days, with displacement 8, 5 and 3 days.
The most popular method of interpreting a moving average is to compare
the relationship between a moving average of the security's price with
the security's price itself (or between several moving averages).

THANK YOU so much for doing this.

Apparently they've added SMMA as an indicator. To test this, I compared a 13-period non-shifted SMMA (native indicator) to the shifted SMMA (your code here). They were very different. Perhaps it's possible to use the native SMMA method?

In the script I used formula from link what you send me in the other thread and code it. But I no not sure that is real formula. In the TV, how I know, don`t exists a builtin function of SMMA, but I can wrong.

Click on the arrow icon right to the TradingView menu "indicators". There you will find the "Bill William's 3 Lines" indicator.

To me your code and TV code looks to show identical signals:

Yeah, because the original is wrong. For the reason's stated in the original comment. (ie it uses SIMPLE moving average instead of SMOOTHED).
HPotter
I think you're right. The formula I sent is wrong. (Sorry).

Here's the code (ie formula) from the SMMA indicator:

src = close
len = input(7, minval=1, title="Length")
smma = na(smma) ? sma(src, len) : (smma * (len - 1) + src) / len
