Filtering with TC Alpha Generation

Adaptive Divergence Convergence (ADC)

If you like MACD, you'll love ADC for your short-term trading! It is useful at shorter lengths and offers more timely signals, while also guarding against sideways movements by adapting and lengthening during such periods. undefined

Long & Short entry/exit signals

The labels are designed to help you spot trading opportunities. Signals are based on the status of all ADC components including price lines, indicators and oscillators. While these components all derive from the same adaptive "window" of market data, they do have some independence from each other so we can make decisions based on weight of evidence.

Entry and Exit signals with TC Alpha Generation

Slow & Fast price indicators

We use a front-weighted moving average for the slow indicator. The fast indicator emulates variable length weighted moving average—shorter in trends, longer in sideways markets. These can be used as other moving averages to offer slow signals by confirming the trend: look for lines sloping up and fast line above slow line; or price crossing above these lines. These indicators are the basis for other ADC components.

Raw & Smooth signal lines

For fast signals, look for upward sloping lines and ADC raw above ADC smooth as your buying signal. For slow signals, look for both ADC raw and smooth to be above 0. Like the MACD, the raw signal line plots the difference between slow and fast indicators (divided by slow) and this is smoothed with exponential averaging, but in this case we find the smoothing length automatically, typically around 4 unlike MACD's 9.

Oscillators Slow & Fast

ADC has two compatible oscillators. For fast signals, look for the fast oscillator to be sloping up and above zero. For slow signals, look for the fast oscillator to be above the slow; or look for the slow oscillator to be sloping up, below the fast oscillator, and above the adaptive filter.
