What is Laguerre Filter?
The Adaptive Laguerre is based on the Laguerre filter, described by John Ehlers in his paper “Time Warp – Without Space Travel”. It applies a variable gamma factor, based on how well the filter is tracking previous price movement. As with other adaptive moving averages, the Adaptive Laguerre tracks trending markets closely but will see less changes in range-bound markets.
The Adaptive Laguerre filter allows for an adjustment of the simple Laguerre filter. When price moves away from the filter, it becomes faster. When price moves sideward, the filter gets slower. Accordingly, this indicator belongs to the same class of moving average as the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA). It similar to the Volatility Index Dynamic Average (VIDYA) developed by Tushar Chande. The Adaptive Laguerre filter is smoother than the VIDYA and will adjust slower to price action after consolidations.
What is Jurik Volty?
One of the lesser known qualities of Juirk smoothing is that the Jurik smoothing process is adaptive. "Jurik Volty" (a sort of market volatility ) is what makes Jurik smoothing adaptive. The Jurik Volty calculation can be used as both a standalone indicator and to smooth other indicators that you wish to make adaptive.
What is the Jurik Moving Average?
Have you noticed how moving averages add some lag (delay) to your signals? ... especially when price gaps up or down in a big move, and you are waiting for your moving average to catch up? Wait no more! JMA eliminates this problem forever and gives you the best of both worlds: low lag and smooth lines.
Ideally, you would like a filtered signal to be both smooth and lag-free. Lag causes delays in your trades, and increasing lag in your indicators typically result in lower profits. In other words, late comers get what's left on the table after the feast has already begun.
