Moving Average - T3 (T3)

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Description

The T3 is a type of moving average, or smoothing function. It is based on the DEMA. The T3 takes the DEMA calculation and adds a vfactor which is between zero and 1. The resultant function is called the GD, or Generalized DEMA. A GD with vfactor of 1 is the same as the DEMA. A GD with a vfactor of zero is the same as an Exponential Moving Average. The T3 typically uses a vfactor of 0.7.

Syntax

T3(int period, int tCount, double vFactor)

T3(ISeries<double> input, int period, int tCount, double vFactor)

 

Returns default value

T3(int period, int tCount, double vFactor)[int barsAgo]

T3(ISeries<double> input, int period, int tCount, double vFactor)[int barsAgo]

 

 

Return Value

double; Accessing this method via an index value [int barsAgo] returns the indicator value of the referenced bar.

 

 

Parameters

input

Indicator source data (?)

period

Number of bars used in the calculation

tCount

Number of smooth iterations

vFactor

A multiplier fudge factor

 

 

Examples

ns


// Prints the current value of a 20 period T3 using default price type
double value = T3(20, 3, 0.7)[0];
Print("The current T3 value is " + value.ToString());
 
// Prints the current value of a 20 period T3 using high price type
double value = T3(High, 20, 3, 0.7)[0];
Print("The current T3 value is " + value.ToString());
