Ergodic Mean Deviation Indicator [CC]

The Ergodic Mean Deviation Indicator was created by William Blau and this is a hidden gem that takes the difference between the current price and it's exponential moving average and then double smooths the result to create this indicator. This double smoothing of course creates a lag that allows it to give off a sustained buy signal during a bullish trend and vice versa. This is a very fun indicator to experiment with and surprised that no one on here gives William Blau much attention so I will go ahead and publish the rest of his scripts eventually. I have included strong buy and sell signals in addition to normal ones so strong signals are darker in color and normal signals are lighter in color. Buy when the line turns green and sell when it turns red.

Let me know if there are any other indicators or scripts you would like to see me publish!
