NEXT Trend Delta Moving Average (TDMA)TM

a composite trend weighted MA


Trend Delta Moving Average (TDMA) is a composite moving average, driven by an algorithm that tracks real-time trends in price, volume, and various changes (delta) between the two. TDMA is low lagging but filtered (smoothed) MA type, with a sometimes predictive slope (via price divergence). This indicator allows you to plot one or two TDMA lines, as well as their crossovers, expressed in the form of long/short signals.

This Nasdaq 100 futures (CME: NQ) example shows both TDMA lines and their crossover signals.

Input Parameters

  • Length TDMA1 – length of the first Trend Delta Moving Average (TDMA)
  • Length TDMA2 – length of the second TDMA
  • Trendiness TDMA1 – the amount of trend weighting added to the first TDMA line (lower = more recent trend, higher = longer term trend)
  • Trendiness TDMA2 – the amount of trend weighting added to the second TDMA line (lower = more recent trend, higher = longer term trend)
  • Source – data used for calculating the MAs, typically Close, but can be used with other price formats and data sources as well
  • Offset – shifting of the TDMA lines forward (+) or backward (-)
  • Plot TDMA1 Only – when checked, will only plot a single TDMA line (TDMA1)
  • Plot TDMA Crossovers – when checked, will plot an up arrow (long signal) when TDMA1 crosses over TDMA2, and a down arrow (short signal) when TDMA1 crosses under TDMA2
