Daily and Weekly Moving Averages on Daily Chart

For the long term trend I use the 200 and 150 daily moving averages. The 200-day MA will be plotted as a black line. It is a no-go zone to buy anything trading below that.

The 150-day, or 30-week like Stan Weinstein uses, is plotted in orange.

Than I use the 50 day moving average but also the 10 week moving average. While those look similar there is a small difference which sometimes impacts the choice for selling a stock or holding on to it.

That slight difference is useful in different situations that’s why I want to have them both on my chart.

Both the 50-day and the 10-week are plotted as red lines on the chart. Since there’s only a small difference the same color gives a nicer view.

For shorter term trend I like to use the 20 and 10 day exponential moving averages. I tested these but also the commonly used 21, 9 and some other variations. But came to the conclusion that for me the 20EMA and 10EMA works best.

Both EMA’s are plotted in blue, where the 20EMA has a thicker line to easily see the difference.
