as well as the option to average these methods together.
The controls are pretty straight forward:
Source lets you select the price data to perform calculations on (close, open, etc..)
Max Period is simply the cap for the algorithm when it's checking the validity of Periods.
-> If you notice your plots have a flat top, then increase this value to accept a wider range of Periods.
-> This setting has a min. value of 8 to reduce noise and a max of 100 to ignore waves from higher time frames.
Average? simply averages the two methods of calculation.
-> You may want to do this if you notice the two plots diverging a lot.
-> Cosine IFM tends to favor shorter periods; I-Q IFM tends to favor longer.
Now you're able to copy & paste the function into any script to add a method for adaptive period setting.
to get the period.
