    The cTrader FRAMA (Fractal Adaptive Moving Average) Indicator. A nonlinear moving average is derived using the Hurst exponent. The FRAMA takes advantage of the fact that markets are fractal and dynamically adjusts the lookback period based on this fractal geometry. The actual calculation is very elaborate and complicated. The FRAMA is often used in combination with other signals and analysis techniques.

    The FRAMA indicator averages the distinctions of the Highest Highs and Lowest Lows over fluctuating segments of the Length of the Time Frame. The figures obtained are mathematically manoeuvred utilizing the Boolean enquiries, Euler’s figure, familiar logarithms, and, forthwith some pointer from the prior Fractal Adaptive Moving Average, the most current Fractal Adaptive Moving Average is carved.

    The time frame length of the Fractal Adaptive Moving Average, as well as the cost type, can be adjusted to show the trader’s desire. The major concept behind the FRAMA is to take into suggestion just very important price adjustments. If the price moves in a particular direction extremely, the FRAMA indicator is able to pursue the price very firmly.

    If price encounters itself range destined and does not make any important move, the FRAMA stays level. The FRAMA fundamental divides the activity chart into smaller groups and then examine in contrast these groups one after the other. These demonstrate the activity chart is a collection of a bunch of squares i.e. smaller and even larger ones.

    The FRAMA is astoundingly effective as both a Fast and a Slow moving average and will outperform any SMA or EMA.
