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).

BTC:USD 4 hour chart DAILY UPDATE (day 117)

Yesterday I pointed out the resistance from the 12 period EMA on the daily chart, the double top on the 4 hour chart, the resistance cluster coming from the trendline and horizontally, and I also noted the shooting star and hanging man candles on the daily chart. Needless to say a strong sell recommendation followed and as usual I lined out exactly how I would ...

Lil neg MFI divergence but so far, but key is the higher lows. Could see some profit taking / selling on weakness $YY + a dip @ / around $103. Been keeping this one on watch for a little bit, but just now taking the setup to terms. Mid/long-term definitely has potential to see 200% ($131.50 - $132) as long as trend continues making higher lows. Regardless, that ...

An Opportunity to Short UD/USD Arises

The trend of the last two weeks is really bearish for AUD/USD. Although, a retrace up has occurred in the US session. That retrace looks almost complete now for four reasons: 1. Stochastic is almost overbought 2. There is some decent resistance below 0.74 3. The previous candlestick is a small bearish reversing signal 4. Most importantly, the 20 SMA is providing ...

CPE recently hit a solid previous support making a good bounce. If it is able to break the resistance at 10.80 and confirm an uptrend it would be a really great opportunity.

5000 to 0$ challenge, week 3. Will AUDUSD ever stop falling?

I hope not :p Wish I left more in XD Feels like it is never going to stop going down. Next time... I do not even know where I should close. Let's see what happens when it tests that low at 0.74123. I can use it as a hedge so maybe this is what I should do, just keep it open forever as a hedge. Let's see how well I can perform this week. My account is at 5600$ ...

0% red fib is where yellow EMA should get to by EOW. All goes as planned - should see noticeable high breaking highs of consolidation range. Preferably a small gap up to close on highs (beggars can't be choosers though). Wouldn't be surprised to end the week off the highs, but also wouldn't be surprised to end off making new lows without any crazy dip. I mention ...

Jesus Mary and Joseph there are rarely times when candlesticks can't accurately tell you the true bullish/bearish signs of a trend. Candle close is most important part of a candle - candle lows are the most telling. 1 of 2 things could happen in this case, 1) Breakout to up-side @ 200% -> Dip back down to 50% ($263). 2) RSI crossover + cross back below 60 short ...
