This hasn't been done before. People know the ALMA moving average, TradingView, of course, has a built-in function for the ALMA = alma(). But, when you use built-in functions, you can't have a series as a length. Pinecoders put out a bunch of functions for various routines wherein the built-in doesn't allow for a series as a length. I got some help from @everget...
Mashed together the ema-bands from IvanLabrie with some moving average script stuff from ChrisMoody and LazyBear and this is the result. Credit goes to them, 'cause I don't know to how to code tbh. Just copy/pasted stuff untill I got the result I wanted.
Bands work as support/resistance among other things. You can use them to trade breakouts or reversals or...
Why use CLAM?
Because candle length may be difficult to discern in fast, choppy markets. CLAM plots current price activity against previous trends. The calculation is similar to Know Sure Thing (KST) without the lag. CLAM uses Triple EMAs (TEMA) instead of Simple Moving Averages (SMAs), and raw open - close instead of clunky Rate of Change (ROC). CLAM...
This is simply three moving averages in the same indicator, with the possibility to change the source, length, offset and type on every moving average (Simple, Exponential, Weighted, Volume-weighted, Triple EMA or a moving average that uses RSI ).
If you want to disable any of the moving averages, then do that under the "Style"-tab by unchecking the box for that...
This script allows you to add two moving averages to a chart, where the type of moving average can be chosen from a collection of 15 different moving average algorithms. Each moving average can also have different lengths and crossovers/unders can be displayed and alerted on.
The supported moving average types are:
Simple Moving Average ( SMA )
This is an extension of the Madrid Moving Average Ribbon public script to allow for different kinds of moving averages (the original allows only exponential and simple). Possible entries in the MA Type argument field are:
sma (simple moving average)
ema (exponential moving average)
wma (weighted moving average)
trima (triangular moving average)
Designed for shorted time frames.
Bollinger bands based off of TEMA as source.
Ribbon based off TEMA and hullMA divergence.
RMA used to signal Bollinger bands.
pinch -> reversal
blue -> sign of possible uptrend
red -> sign of possible downtrend
Bollinger bands background:
blue -> sign of continuing uptrend
red -> sign of continuing downtrend
This script is a crossing of eleven different MA, with alerts and SL and TP.
The simplest is what works best.
SMA --> Simple
EMA --> Exponential
WMA --> Weighted
VWMA --> Volume Weighted
SMMA --> Smoothed
DEMA --> Double Exponential
TEMA --> Triple Exponential
HMA --> Hull
TMA --> Triangular
SSMA --> SuperSmoother filter
ZEMA --> Zero Lag Exponential

This type of moving average was originally developed by Bruno Pio in 2010. I just ported the original code from MetaTrader 5. The method uses a linear combination of EMA cascades to achieve better smoothness. Well, actually you can create your own X-uple EMA, but be sure that the combination' coefficients are valid.
