Library "kNN"
Collection of experimental kNN functions. This is a work in progress, an improvement upon my original kNN script:
The script can be recreated with this library. Unlike the original script, that used multiple arrays, this has been reworked with the new Pine Script matrix features.
To make a kNN prediction, the following data should be supplied to the wrapper:
The wrapper returns a tuple: [longOK, shortOK]. This is a pair of filters. When longOK is true, then kNN predicts a long trade may be taken. When shortOK is true, then kNN predicts a short trade may be taken. The kNN filters are returned whenever long or short conditions are met. The trade is supposed to happen when long or short conditions are met and when the kNN filter for the desired direction is true.
Exported functions:
knnStore(knn, p1, p2, src, maxrows)
Store the previous trade; buffer the current one until results are in. Results are binary: up/down
Parameters:
knn: knn matrix
p1: feature 1 value
p2: feature 2 value
src: current price
maxrows: limit the matrix size to this number of rows (0 of no limit)
Returns: modified knn matrix
knnStorePercent(knn, p1, p2, src, maxrows)
Store the previous trade; buffer the current one until results are in. Results are in percents
Parameters:
knn: knn matrix
p1: feature 1 value
p2: feature 2 value
src: current price
maxrows: limit the matrix size to this number of rows (0 of no limit)
Returns: modified knn matrix
knnGet(distance, result)
Get neighbours by getting k results with the smallest distances
Parameters:
distance: distance array
result: result array

knnDistance(knn, p1, p2)

Collection of experimental kNN functions. This is a work in progress, an improvement upon my original kNN script:
The script can be recreated with this library. Unlike the original script, that used multiple arrays, this has been reworked with the new Pine Script matrix features.
To make a kNN prediction, the following data should be supplied to the wrapper:
- kNN: filter type. Right now either Binary or Percent. Binary works like in the original script: the system stores whether the price has increased (+1) or decreased (-1) since the previous knnStore event (called when either long or short condition is supplied). Percent works the same, but the values stored are the difference of prices in percents. That way larger differences in prices would give higher scores.
- k: number k. This is how many nearest neighbors are to be selected (and summed up to get the result).
- skew: kNN minimum difference. Normally, the prediction is done with a simple majority of the neighbor votes. If skew is given, then more than a simple majority is needed for a prediction. This also means that there are inputs for which no prediction would be given (if the majority votes are between -skew and +skew). Note that in Percent mode more profitable trades will have higher voting power.
- depth: kNN matrix size limit. Originally, the whole available history of trades was used to make a prediction. This not only requires more computational power, but also neglects the fact that the market conditions are changing. This setting restricts the memory matrix to a finite number of past trades.
- price: price series
- long: long condition. True if the long conditions are met, but filters are not yet applied. For example, in my original script, trades are only made on crossings of fast and slow MAs. So, whenever it is possible to go long, this value is set true. False otherwise.
- short: short condition. Same as long, but for short condition.
- store: whether the inputs should be stored. Additional filters may be applied to prevent bad trades (for example, trend-based filters), so if you only need to consult kNN without storing the trade, this should be set to false.
- feature1: current value of feature 1. A feature in this case is some kind of data derived from the price. Different features may be used to analyse the price series. For example, oscillator values. Not all of them may be used for kNN prediction. As the current kNN implementation is 2-dimensional, only two features can be used.
- feature2: current value of feature 2.
The wrapper returns a tuple: [longOK, shortOK]. This is a pair of filters. When longOK is true, then kNN predicts a long trade may be taken. When shortOK is true, then kNN predicts a short trade may be taken. The kNN filters are returned whenever long or short conditions are met. The trade is supposed to happen when long or short conditions are met and when the kNN filter for the desired direction is true.
