[blackcat] L2 Ehlers Adaptive CCI 2013

Level: 2

Background

John F. Ehlers introduced Adaptive CCI 2013 in his "Cycle Analytics for Traders" chapter 11 on 2013.


Function

The time length to be used for the channel in the calculations is widely varied in the literature. In all cases, the length is rather arbitrarily established to fit the indicator to some preconceived event. It seems to me that it would be better to use one full period of the dominant cycle as the length of data to be used.

The adaptive CCI indicator starts with the computation of the dominant cycle using the autocorrelation periodogram approach. The identification of the indicator itself is noted by the comment near the end following the dominant cycle calculation. Since the objective is to use only those frequency components passed by the roofing filter, the variable Filt is used as a data input rather than the average of the high, low, and close as was done by Donald Lambert (Inventor of CCI ).

Key Signal


DominantCycle --> Dominant Cycle signal
MyCCI --> Adaptive CCI signal
Trigger --> lag version of Adaptive CCI signal


Pros and Cons

100% John F. Ehlers definition translation of original work, even variable names are the same. This help readers who would like to use pine to read his book. If you had read his works, then you will be quite familiar with my code style.

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.
