Adaptive EMA is a moving average-based indicator. It is essentially an exponential moving average (EMA) with a dynamic smoothing coefficient, which adapts to the relative position of the close price in the high-low range. The nearer the close price is to either limit, the greater weight the bar readings have.

Like other moving averages, Adaptive EMA is trend-following. Using it along with the regular EMA of the same length, may give insight into current trend direction. Using two adaptive EMAs with different lengths may give important crossover signals.

price Defines the price for which Adaptive EMA is to be calculated.
