 RangeTrader   Registered: Mar 2012 Posts: 705 08-07-12 07:10 AM Anyone know the answer to this quick? Otherwise I will have to code it into my plotting program to solve it. If you have a security moving a rate of 0.5% per bar (Lets just say 10 points per bar to make it simple)... What EMA period will plot at the same location as a 10 SMA? It is something around EMA 15 I think... But I need the EXACT number... I am playing with a automated channel script and it's not plotting quite correctly because this conversion is off.

But I need the EXACT number... ========= Yes; but i solve most of my math problems with profit in mind. I just studied a 10 sma, 10 ema, 15 ema... I like the 10 ema,200ema ,10 sma ,200sma amoung others. But on a variety of trends , like so may others; 10 sma/ 10 ema are so close, i prefer descretion with them especially since i figured you were interested in profitable math.

Now I can plot automated channels based upon current trend strength. Current SPX filtered trend strength is at 16.70 points per 10 days. La da de da... Going to be a while until strength is lost. The crash whenever it occurs... (Expected mid September/or in October) is going to be quite interesting. trendstrength.png This has been downloaded 79 time(s). Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain
