Hi Chris,
It looks like something related to the K-nearest neighbors algorithm.
I converted this indicator to the MT4 version, so please check it out.
Also you can try to test the Next price predictor using Neural Network of the same author.

Hi Igor,
Thank you very much. I will certainly test those indicators.
Regards,
Chris
Thanks Igor
Interesting thread, thanks for starting it! I will certainly follow and post my ideas and maybe indicators, when they are ready.
Polynomial regression: I do not believe it make sense to apply methods like polynomial regression or Fourier analysis directy to price series.
I plan something different at the moment: take some considerably smooth input signal (a reliable MA or oscillator) and apply regression methods to the most recent 5 to 10 bars. Choose an appropriate grade (maybe 2, 3, or 4) and this way try to display the next 2 or 3 bars of your input signal. This might work and I'll try to set up an example within the following two weeks or so.
The idea is to predict those magic points (crossings, highs, lows) maybe 2 or 3 bars in advance - nothing more! This could be used for early exits in EAs or similarly.
Would be interested to hear your thoughts about the idea.

Two forecasting indicators from Metaquotes website russian version:
1. DailyLevels indicator: support/resistence for previous day + max/min/middle daily according to Paramon/MaksiGen system.
2. Calculation the future day indicator.
Based on Neal T. Weintraub 'The Weintraub Daytrader'. The full description are insidethe code as small article (in Russian).
As I understand it is forecasting of the support and resistance for the current day.
I mean: those indicators are forecasting in the beginning of the day for whole the current day.
The other interesting indicator with forecasting category is i-Regr (attached), we can read about this indicator using this page.
How to use this indicator? Trade on the direction of the channel from "inside the channel" - it means: buy if the price breaks lower bands and sell for upper bands (on the direction of the channel only).
I just attached 2 indicators on the chart: one with default settings and the other one with kstd = 1
