The method used to make it MtF should be more precise and smoother than regular MtF methods that use the security function. For intraday timeframes, each number represents each hour, with 24 equal to 1 day. For daily, 3 is 3 day, for weekly, 4 is the 4 weekly, etc. If you're on a higher timeframe than the one selected, the length will not change.
Log-space is used to make calculations work on many cryptos. The rules for color changing Guppy is changed to make it not as choppy on MAs other than . Note that length does not affect SWMA and and source does not affect .
A short summary of each moving average can be found here: https://medium.com/@NeoButane/charting-i...
List of included MAs:
- Added McGinley Dynamic
- Added MVWAP (uses EMA)
- Added an EMA version of Triangular MA for experimentation
- Consolidated LRC with LSMA and SSMA/RMA with Welles Wilders as they have the same formulas
- Removed Super Guppy to help with lag/length limiting
- Commented out some inputs

Sorry if I haven't replied to your message yet, I'm a bit backlogged :)
You can try experimenting with each moving average type and see what works for your trading style.
Here in this example, I have used "Hull MA" because it tends to move quickly with price, so there is less lag.
