Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average

Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average is an intelligent moving average tool developed on the EMA (Exponential Moving Average), which is responsive to trend volatility. It follows the prices when the price fluctuations are insignificant, and the noise is low. When market volatility is low, Kaufman’s Adaptive Moving Average remains near the current market price, but when volatility increases, it will lag behind. What the KAMA indicator aims to do is filter out “market noise” – insignificant, temporary surges in price action. One of the primary weaknesses of traditional moving averages is that when used for trading signals, they tend to generate many false signals. The KAMA indicator seeks to lessen this tendency – generate fewer false signals – by not responding to short-term, insignificant price movements.
