Indicator Description

The Multiple Rainbow Filter offers a selection of moving averages as input series. The 100 moving average periods are generated by a an increasing increment. If the increment is set to 2, each subsequent moving average will increase accordingly, i.e. MA16, MA18, MA20… until MA206 MA208 and MA210.

However, as opposed to the other Multi Series indicators, it does not include the Adaptive Laguerre, Distant Coefficient Filter, Moving Mean TPO, Moving Median TPO, Moving Mode TPOMoving Mean VWTPO, Moving Median VWTPO, Moving Mode VWTPO nor the Holt EMA , as it would require an excess of CPU resources when applied to 100 moving averages.
