Fractal Adaptive Moving Average (real one)

Ignore the other one (it contains some errors).

On this FRAMA you can play with length, SC and FC .
Just read on below links to understand more about this super useful moving average:

can you please explain how to use it for trading ?

I think still 1 error on line 18, is aduot Fractal Dimension ane I check for formula.

D = (Log(HL1 + HL2) – Log(HL)) / Log(2)

XXXX Note: Log(2) = Log(N / (½N)) XXXXX ___ Look at Log(2) _____

HL1 = (Max(High,½N..N) – Min(Low,½N..N)) / ½N

HL2 = (Max(High,½N) – Min(Low,½N)) / ½N

HL = (Max(High,N) – Min(Low,N)) / N

N = Periods

If D < 1 then D = 1

If D > 2 then D = 2

Ok MarcoValente told me that in the they found out that there is no need for this change, it's exactly the same.
