HP Extrapolator MetaTrader 4 Forex Indicator

The distinctive feature of the Hodrick-Prescott filter is that it does not delay. It is determined by minimizing the unbiased feature

F = Amount(( y [i] - x [i] ^ 2, i= 0..n-1) + lambda * Amount(( y [i +1] +y [i-1] -2 * y [i] ^ 2, i= 1..n-2).

where x [] - prices, y [] - filter worths. Below is the instance of the filter behavior (see the documents HP.mq4 connected listed below).

If the Hodrick-Prescott filter sees the future, after that what future values does it suggest? To answer this question, we should locate the electronic low-frequency filter with the frequency parameter similar to the Hodrick-Prescott filter's one however with the worth computed straight using the past values of the "twin filter" itself, i.e.

y [i] = Amount( a [k] * x [i-k], k= 0..nx-1) - FIR filter

or

y [i] = Sum( a [k] * x [i-k], k= 0..nx-1) + Amount( b [k] * y [i-k], k= 1. ny) - IIR filter

It is better to select the "twin filter" having the frequency-independent hold-up Тdel (consistent group delay). IIR filters are not ideal. For FIR filters, the condition for a frequency-independent delay is as complies with:

a [i] = +/- a [nx-1-i], i = 0..nx-1

The simplest FIR filter with constant hold-up is Easy Moving Typical (SMA):.

y [i] = Sum( x [i-k], k= 0..nx-1)/ nx.

In instance nx is a weird number, Тdel = (nx-1)/ 2. If we move the worth of SMA filter to the past by the amount of bars equal to Тdel, SMA worth coincide with the Hodrick-Prescott filter ones. The precise math can not be accomplished because of the considerable distinctions in the regularity criteria of both filters.

To attain the closest match between the filter values, I suggest their network widths to be comparable (as an example, -6 dB). The Hodrick-Prescott filter's network size of -6 dB is calculated as complies with:

wc = 2 * arcsin( 0.5/ lambda ^ 0.25).

The network width of -6 dB for the SMA filter is determined by mathematical computer via the following equation:

| H( w)|= wrong( nx * wc/2)/ wrong( wc/2)/ nx = 0.5

The chart listed below compares the worths of both filters having the comparable channel width: red - Hodrick-Prescott filter (FiltPer = 25), blue - SMA (Period = 15, Change = -7). Note that there is no SMA data for the last 7 bars since it needs to recognize future prices. Oppositely, the Hodrick-Prescott filter (red) reveals some worths. If the changed SMA repeats the values of the Hodrick-Prescott filter on the last 7 bars after the future prices show up, then what can these values be?

Prediction algorithms:

The indicator features both forecast methods:

Metod 1:

1. Set SMA length to 3 and shift it to the past by 1 bar. With such a size, the moved SMA does not exist just for the last bar (Bar = 0), given that it needs the value of the following future price Close [-1]

2. Determine SMA filer's channel width. Equal it to the Hodrick-Prescott filter's one. Find lambda.

3. Determine Hodrick-Prescott filter worth at the last bar HP [0] as well as assume that SMA [0] with unidentified Close [-1] provides the same worth.

4. Discover Close [-1] = 3 * HP [0] - Close [0] - Close [1]

5. Enhance the length of SMA to 5. Repeat all computations and find Close [-2] = 5 * HP [0] - Close [-1] - Close [0] - Close [1] - Close [2] Proceed till the defined quantity of future FutBars prices is computed.

Method 2:

1. Establish SMA length equal to 2 * FutBars +1 and shift SMA to the past by FutBars

2. Compute SMA filer's channel size. Equal it to the Hodrick-Prescott filter's one. Locate lambda.

3. Determine Hodrick-Prescott filter values at the last FutBars as well as assume that SMA acts in a similar way when new rates show up.

4. Find Close [-1] = (2 * FutBars +1) * HP [FutBars-1] - Sum( Close [i], i= 0..2 * FutBars-1), Close [-2] = (2 * FutBars +1) * HP [FutBars-2] - Sum( Close [i], i= -1..2 * FutBars-2), etc

. The indication features the following inputs:

Approach - forecast approach

LastBar - number of the last bar to inspect predictions on the existing costs (LastBar >= 0).

PastBars - quantity of previous bars the Hodrick-Prescott filter is calculated for (the a lot more, the better, or at least PastBars > 2 * FutBars).

FutBars - quantity of predicted future values.

The indicator highlights predicted values in red. Technique 1 is made use of in the example listed below:.

Method 2:

The second approach is much more accurate but typically has big spikes of the first anticipated rate. The explained forecast technique can be boosted by searching for the FIR filter with the regularity parameter closer to the Hodrick-Prescott filter. For instance, you may attempt Hanning, Blackman, Kaiser, and other filters with constant delay rather than SMA.
