Moving Averages

Moving Averages are price based, lagging (or reactive) indicators that display the average price of a security over a set period of time. A Moving Average is a good way to gauge momentum as well as to confirm trends, and define areas of support and resistance. Essentially, Moving Averages smooth out the “noise” when trying to interpret charts. Noise is made up of fluctuations of both price and volume. Because a Moving Average is a lagging indicator and reacts to events that have already happened, it is not used as a predictive indicator but as an interpretive one for confirmations and analysis.

In fact, Moving Averages form the basis of several other well-known technical analysis tools such as the Bollinger Bands and the MACD. There are different types of Moving Averages which all take the same basic premise and add a variation. Most notable are the Simple Moving Average (SMA), the Exponential Moving Average (EMA), the Weighted Moving Average (WMA) and the Hull Moving Average (HMA).

EURUSD is preparing for something

We have nice three black crowns formation on daily. There is double bottom which in my opinion is kind of false signal. It is pushing pair higher but it seems to me that the bulls power is not enough and EURUSD is preparing to go lower towards 1.500.

If we look at this cart we see a couple of trends. Overall, we see an upward movement, to a peak around $4400. As we look at a volume indicator, the RSI, we notice the the very highest peak had lower volume than the peak before it, leading to what is called a bearish divergence, drawn by the red arrow over the bottom indicator. After this there was large volume ...

EUR/JPY climbs to 129.46

Daily outlook - EUR/JPY climbs to 129.46 An early hours of Monday’s trading session revealed that the EUR/JPY currency pair has successfully used an upside moment that was created by a release of data on the US CPI last Friday to surge not only to the 129.46 level, but climb even a little bit higher. In theory, the pair has a chance to gain a foothold at the ...

Sell BCH

This is on the 1 hour time-frame. The price action and short term EMA has now crossed under all the other longer term moving averages so I'm expecting the price to fall in the near term. I'm also expecting there to be a lot of selling pressure on the 14th as Poloniex users finally get access to their BCH.

Overall, fundamentals of Bitcoin Cash at the moment, as well as the foreseeable future, are an absolute dumpster fire. However, technicals show the downtrend ending with a bullish Tenkan/Kijun cross and price entering the cloud. Target for this trade is the other edge of the cloud.

GOLD - Do you hafe a FEW Minutes?

After the FED Minutes I always take a look at this chart. (FED = FOMC meeting/ FEDM = FED Minutes. The numbers below the arrows are the dates of FED and FEDM) In the past the previous trend always had a follow through after the FED minutes. It seems the same is happening now. Gold's trend is usually turning at or ahead of the FOMC meeting. The next FOMC meeting ...

2017 the return of the Bitcoin

To many people Bitcoin has died several times over. But Bitcoin doesn't really care about them, it's been trending strong for the last year. We have a nice setup in the making playing off of the long term trend. If you been waiting 580's may be an excellent entry. SL will be under 200EMA. If 200 EMA fails, lower high confirmed and new lows will be tested.

Netflix facing same seasonal pattern as last year

Netflix will continue to dip until October and gain investor interest for a short period and face another dip. It will climb to the very high 190s, possibly hit $200 because of excitement. Then will have a big downward swing into February only to get on a steady climb into the summer days as today.

Weekly Pivot Point Tested Inside The Kumo Cloud

Price failed to pierce the Monthly pivot point last week and instead bounced off of the Weekly S1, just 23 pips shy of the monthly pp. After a test and bounce off the cloud price failed to make a new low and came right back to the cloud and after a while pierced it with one impressive candle. But since the projected cloud was bearish this was unlikely to hold as a ...

Sterling Vs. Yen. Weekly Analysis Aug 14-18

Last week we saw GBP/JPY fall flat on its face melting dollar after dollar. A lot of this had to do with the recent strength of the safe haven currency YEN which went up a good amount against USD due to recent issues between Trump and his counterpart from North Korea. It has since fell down to a nice support zone. We have a confirmed EMA cross on the daily chart ...
