[blackcat] L2 Ehlers Adaptive Stochastic

Level: 2


John F. Ehlers introuced Adaptive Stochastic in his "Rocket Science for Traders" chapter 21 on 2001.


The Stochastic measures the current closing price relative to the lowest low over the observation period. It then normalizes this to the range between the highest high and the lowest low over the observation period. If the current closing price is equal to the highest high over the observation period, then the Stochastic has a value of 1. If the current closing price is equal to the lowest low over the observation period, then the Stochastic has a value of zero. These are the limits over which the Stochastic can range. To optimize the Stochastic for the measured cycle, the correct fraction of the cycle to use is one-half, as the Stochastic can
range from its minimum to its maximum on each half cycle of the period. As before, the code for the optimized Stochastic measures the cycle period using the Homodyne Discriminator algorithm and then uses that period as the basis for finding HH and LL and computing the Stochastic . Since half the cycle period may not be the universal answer, we include a CycPart input as a modifier. This input allows you to optimize the observation period for each particular situation. The optimized Stochastic tends to be in phase with the original price data. This suggests a way to turn a good indicator into a great one. If we subtract 50 from the optimized Stochastic , we would get a zero mean and thus tend to have Poisson-like statistics on the Stochastic’s zero crossings. If that were the case, we could smooth the optimized Stochastic and make an Optimum Predictive filter from it. That way we could anticipate signals rather than wait for signals to cross the 20 percent and 80 percent marks for confirmation as is done with the standard indicator. I will leave it to you to decide which method best suits your needs and purposes.

Pros and Cons

100% John F. Ehlers definition translation of original work, even variable names are the same. This help readers who would like to use pine to read his book. If you had read his works, then you will be quite familiar with my code style.


The 19th script for Blackcat1402 John F. Ehlers Week publication.


In real life, I am a prolific inventor. I have successfully applied for more than 60 international and regional patents in the past 12 years. But in the past two years or so, I have tried to transfer my creativity to the development of trading strategies. Tradingview is the ideal platform for me. I am selecting and contributing some of the hundreds of scripts to publish in Tradingview community. Welcome everyone to interact with me to discuss these interesting pine scripts.

The scripts posted are categorized into 5 levels according to my efforts or manhours put into these works.

Level 1 : interesting script snippets or distinctive improvement from classic indicators or strategy. Level 1 scripts can usually appear in more complex indicators as a function module or element.

Level 2 : composite indicator/strategy. By selecting or combining several independent or dependent functions or sub indicators in proper way, the composite script exhibits a resonance phenomenon which can filter out noise or fake trading signal to enhance trading confidence level.

Level 3 : comprehensive indicator/strategy. They are simple trading systems based on my strategies. They are commonly containing several or all of entry signal, close signal, stop loss, take profit, re-entry, risk management, and position sizing techniques. Even some interesting fundamental and mass psychological aspects are incorporated.

Level 4 : script snippets or functions that do not disclose source code. Interesting element that can reveal market laws and work as raw material for indicators and strategies. If you find Level 1~2 scripts are helpful, Level 4 is a private version that took me far more efforts to develop.

Level 5 : indicator/strategy that do not disclose source code. private version of Level 3 script with my accumulated script processing skills or a large number of custom functions. I had a private function library built in past two years. Level 5 scripts use many of them to achieve private trading strategy.

You're on a roll mate!

@Jittra, let us see how many Ehlers indicators can be roll out :D
Jittra blackcat1402
@blackcat1402, which is your favorite?

@Jittra, not sure which ONE, but cyber cycle, reflex, voss predictive filter are in the list. After decades evolution, i feel Dr. Ehlers changed his mind a lot and update 2001 indicators into 201x indicators with totally brand new concept and new engine. However, I am still studying which is better.
