SAMPLE INDICATOR VALUES
I have a request. Would it be possible to include a set of sample data and expected indicator values when you provide the code for indicators? Perhaps you could post it at your website for download.
I just read “Empirical Mode Decomposition” by John Ehlers in the March 2010 issue. It’s a great article, and it’s very helpful that he has included the programming code. I have coded it into my backtesting software, and the indicator looks similar to the example figures in the article. But if I had a set of expected values, it would help a lot to verify that my code is working as expected. Without it, the code could be generating close or totally incorrect values and I would never know. Bugs like this could come from anywhere, such as incorrect coding or more often a simple typo. It would not have to be a lot of values, perhaps 500–1,000 bars.
Thank you for your feedback. We will keep your request in mind and encourage our authors to supply this if possible.
