  1. There's been allot of discussion about which is better... looking at some JMA code on the internet, it looks like the JMA is just a modified HMA. Am I incorrect? :confused:

    If you use either, what are your feelings?

    I don't know the formula for the JMA but I'd bet it's more complicated than a modified HMA. For one thing, it's been around longer than the HMA IIRC.

    I personally would never use an overshooter as my smoother. Just my two cents.

    When are jurik research going to support windows 7? Windows 8 will be out by summer!
  4. Got it... what do you use?

    IMO, JMA and HMA appear similar on live charts... the example chart shown isn't necessarily realistic... :D

    I use my own custom ama. I don't know how it compares to the JMA but I like it. However I found out that simply having a great smoother isn't enough for a great trading system. :(

    Granted, the pic you posted isn't totally realistic but it does point out that the HMA can overshoot, which should be taken as a warning of what can happen in a real trading situation.
