Does anyone know how to convert the smoothing factor of EMA into number of bars?
EMA_Time_Periods = (2/EMA_Percentage)-1
And the backwards calc is:
EMA_Percentage = 2/(EMA_Time_Periods + 1)
See http://www.equis.com/Education/TAAZ/?page=74, should have the formulas you are looking for.
Good thing you know Algebra.
