Identify Current Trends: Moving Averages
The Moving Averages are key!
Understanding what to expect around the moving averages provides the trader with an edge!
The basic thesis behind moving averages is to identify key resistance and support levels of the underlying security so that one can detect the continuation of a price trend or the emergence of a new price trend.
Moving averages watched by institutions:
20 or 21 Daily, 50 Daily, 200 Daily.
Traders also use shorter timeframe moving averages to better trigger entries and exits.
8 or 10 period EMA works well for these triggers.
Weekly Period Moving Averages which approximate the Daily Moving Averages can also
be helpful during analysis.
50 Day Moving Average approximately equals the 8-10 Week Moving Average
200 Day Moving Average approximately equals the 40 Week Moving Average
