User Selectable Moving Average Guppy

animecummer Updated   
A version of the popular "Moving Average Ribbon" or "Guppy" indicators, except nearly everything about it is user selectable. The user can change the source, period, and type of moving average used for every single line on the chart. Note: The visuals are fairly intensive and may take a moment to catch up after adjusting settings.

Credit: This script utilizes the "Color Gradient Framework" tutorial by LucF (PineCoders) to create gradient visuals, which are also customizable for the user.

Moving Average Options:
  • Running (SMoothed) Moving Average (RMA or SMMA) - Slowest
  • Simple Moving Average (SMA) - Slow
  • Exponential Moving Average (EMA) - Responds faster to price than SMA
  • Weighted Moving Average (WMA)
  • Volume-Weighted Moving Average (VWMA)
  • Triple EMA (TEMA)
  • Exponential Hull Moving Average (EHMA) - Hull with Smoothing (Slower than Hull)
  • Least Squares Moving Average (LSMA) - Simple Linear Regression
  • Arnaud Legoux Moving Average (ALMA) - Adjustable, set offset=1 to be current, offset=0.85 for good smoothing (Slower)
  • Hull Moving Average (HMA) - Normally responds fastest to price of all options

Value Added:
  • This script is unique in that it allows the user to chart the "Guppy", except nearly everything about it is customizable. The user can change the source, period, and type of moving average used for every single line.
  • Typically, the Guppy is plotted with simple moving average or exponential moving average, which respond much slower to price than the Hull Moving Average, which this indicator uses as default. (Elimination of lag)
  • The Hull MA settings for the highest time frame moving averages should work well for assessing the overall macro trend, with a nice visual presentation. Additional labels and alerts for the macro trend are available.
  • Furthermore, this script provides many more options for type of moving average than is typical for a moving average indicator that provides the user with options, including advanced options such as Hull, TEMA, and ALMA.
  • The visual presentation is customizable and should provide some entertainment for users who want to create pretty charts.
