CFB Adaptive, Jurik-Filtered Gann HiLo Activator [Loxx]CFB Adaptive, Jurik-Filtered Gann HiLo Activator is a Composite-Fractal-Behavior-adaptive Gann HiLo activator that has been smoothed using Jurik Filtering to reduce noise and better identify trending markets. This indicator is the CFB adaptive version of Jurik-Filtered, Gann HiLo Activator .
What is Gann HiLo
The HiLo Activator study is a trend-following indicator introduced by Robert Krausz as part of the Gann Swing trading strategy. In addition to indicating the current trend direction, this can be used as both entry signal and trailing stop.
Here is how the HiLo Activator is calculated:
1. The system calculates the moving averages of the high and low prices over the last several candles. By default, the average is calculated using the last three candles.
2. If the close price falls below the average low or rises above the average high, the system plots the opposite moving average. For example, if the price crosses above the average high, the system will plot the average low. If the price crosses below the average low afterward, the system will stop plotting the average low and will start plotting the average high, and so forth .
The plot of the HiLo Activator thus consists of sections on the top and bottom of the price plot. The sections on the bottom signify bullish trending conditions. Vice versa, those on the top signify the bearish conditions.
What is Composite Fractal Behavior (CFB)?
All around you mechanisms adjust themselves to their environment. From simple thermostats that react to air temperature to computer chips in modern cars that respond to changes in engine temperature, r.p.m.'s, torque, and throttle position. It was only a matter of time before fast desktop computers applied the mathematics of self-adjustment to systems that trade the financial markets.
Unlike basic systems with fixed formulas, an adaptive system adjusts its own equations. For example, start with a basic channel breakout system that uses the highest closing price of the last N bars as a threshold for detecting breakouts on the up side. An adaptive and improved version of this system would adjust N according to market conditions, such as momentum, price volatility or acceleration.
Since many systems are based directly or indirectly on cycles, another useful measure of market condition is the periodic length of a price chart's dominant cycle, (DC), that cycle with the greatest influence on price action.
The utility of this new DC measure was noted by author Murray Ruggiero in the January '96 issue of Futures Magazine. In it. Mr. Ruggiero used it to adaptive adjust the value of N in a channel breakout system. He then simulated trading 15 years of D-Mark futures in order to compare its performance to a similar system that had a fixed optimal value of N. The adaptive version produced 20% more profit!
This DC index utilized the popular MESA algorithm (a formulation by John Ehlers adapted from Burg's maximum entropy algorithm, MEM). Unfortunately, the DC approach is problematic when the market has no real dominant cycle momentum, because the mathematics will produce a value whether or not one actually exists! Therefore, we developed a proprietary indicator that does not presuppose the presence of market cycles. It's called CFB (Composite Fractal Behavior) and it works well whether or not the market is cyclic.
CFB examines price action for a particular fractal pattern, categorizes them by size, and then outputs a composite fractal size index. This index is smooth, timely and accurate
Essentially, CFB reveals the length of the market's trending action time frame. Long trending activity produces a large CFB index and short choppy action produces a small index value. Investors have found many applications for CFB which involve scaling other existing technical indicators adaptively, on a bar-to-bar basis.
What is Jurik Volty used in the Juirk Filter?
One of the lesser known qualities of Juirk smoothing is that the Jurik smoothing process is adaptive. "Jurik Volty" (a sort of market volatility ) is what makes Jurik smoothing adaptive. The Jurik Volty calculation can be used as both a standalone indicator and to smooth other indicators that you wish to make adaptive.
What is the Jurik Moving Average?
Have you noticed how moving averages add some lag (delay) to your signals? ... especially when price gaps up or down in a big move, and you are waiting for your moving average to catch up? Wait no more! JMA eliminates this problem forever and gives you the best of both worlds: low lag and smooth lines.
Ideally, you would like a filtered signal to be both smooth and lag-free. Lag causes delays in your trades, and increasing lag in your indicators typically result in lower profits. In other words, late comers get what's left on the table after the feast has already begun.

Gann HiLo Activator Strategy█ OVERVIEW
Strategy based on the Gann Hilo Activator . This is a trend following strategy, which means it will go long (and close the previous short position) once the price closes above the high SMA, and go short (and close the previous long position) once the price closes below the low SMA.
█ PARAMETERS
- Length
- Displace (or offset): default is 1
- Begin from start: strategy will run since the beggining
- From year, month, day: Choose an specific date to start backtesting (must disable the parameter above to work)
█ HOW TO USE
After choosing the start date to run the strategy, you can change the length field and look at the backtest results to find the most optimal settings for the current symbol.
This strategy was tested on the stock and crypto market with good results. Hope you enjoy!

HiLo Screener█ OVERVIEW
This is a screener script for the Gann Hilo Indicator . It's an excellent trend analysis indicator to spot trend reversals.
█ DESCRIPTION
The screener works by scanning through up to 10 symbols and list down symbols that are currently breaking the high or low mean averages as definied by the Gann Hilo Indicator. Once you add it, 2 panels will be added to your chart - the green panel will list the symbols reversing into a bullish trend and the red panel will show the symbols reversing into a bearish trend.
█ HOW TO USE
After adding the indicator, open the script settings and type the symbol name and length to be used on the Gann Hilo Indicator for each stock.
█ FEATURES
The screener can scan up to 10 symbols each time.
█ LIMITATIONS
The screener will scan the symbols reversing trend on the current bar, and as such, there maybe some delays depending on the stock/etf/crypto you choose. Some exchanges require an additional subscription to get realtime data.

Gann HiLo ActivatorThe HiLo Activator study is a trend-following indicator introduced as part of the Gann Swing trading strategy. In addition to indicating the current trend direction, this can be used as both entry signal and trailing stop.
There are many scripts already published for this indicator, but I've found they didn't match the original one.
So here it is the Gann HiLo Activator as originally developed by Robert Krausz, in a 1998 article in the Stocks & Commodities magazine.
I've also added the option to select the type of Moving Average you would like to use.
Hope you enjoy!

Modified Gann HiLo ActivatorIntroduction
The gann hilo activator is a trend indicator developed by Robert Krausz published into W. D. Gann Treasure Discovered: Simple Trading Plans for Stocks & Commodities . This indicator crate a trailing stop aiming to show the direction of the trend.
This indicator is fairly easy to compute and dont require lot of skills to understand. First we calculate the simple moving average of both price high and price low, when the close price is higher than the moving average of the price high the indicator return the moving average of the price low, else the indicator return the moving average of the price high if the close price is lower than the moving average of the price low.
My indicator add a different calculation method in order to avoid whipsaw trades as well as adding significance to the moving average length. A Median method has been added to provide more robustness.
The Indicator
The indicator is a simple trailing stop aiming to show the direction of the trend. The indicator use a different source instead of the price high/low for its calculation. The first method is the "SMA" method which like the classic hilo indicator use a simple moving average for the calculation of the indicator.
Sma Method with length = 25
The "Median" use a moving median instead of a simple moving average, this provide more robustness.
Median Method with length = 25
The shape is less curved and the indicator can sometimes avoid whipsaw with high's length periods.
Mult Parameter
The mult parameter is a parameter set to be lower or equal to 1 and greater or equal to 0. High values allow the indicator to be far from the price thus avoiding whipsaw trades, lower ones lower the distance from the price. A mult parameter of 0.1 approximate the original hilo indicator.
In blue the indicator with mult = 0.1 and in radical red the original hilo activator.
Conclusion
The modifications allow more control over the indicator as well as adding more robustness while the original one is destined to fail when market price is more complex.
