200 EMA - best use for entries!

FX:GBPUSD   British Pound / U.S. Dollar
I don't use indicators, they're not my style, they lag, they repaint; and in my opinion they don't work.

The 200 EMA on DAILY can be useful because of how slow it is. We can use it to filter the direction of which way we trade.

Price ABOVE 200 ema = ONLY BUY
Price BELOW 200 ema = ONLY SELL

Then drop timeframes for your entries via your strategy whatever that may be. If your strategy says go long but price is below EMA , don't take the trade etc...

Ignore the EMA on other timeframes lower than the daily. You want a slow daily direction indicator.

Don't blindly trade this, wait until price is clearly past the EMA and maintaining a good distance from it.
Use it as a guideline if you struggle working out fundamentals to help you filter a direction to trade.
