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).

GBPUSD - Break of Key Average targets 1.4004

In line with yesterday's outlook this week's decline from 22 month highs deepened. An attempt to renew buying it from the 13 day mvg avg was limited by Wednesday’s Marabuzo line. Failure at the crucial point translated into fresh downside that accelerated in the latter part of the day. Intraday signals for sentiment are approaching oversold extremes but while this ...

USDCAD - Bullish rally incomplete, 1.2670 targeted.

Yesterday's bullish forecast was confirmed. Following Tuesday’s indecisive price action at oversold extremes, a more significant profit taking rally developed. The resulting improvement, the most positive of this month, took USDCAD to test the 13/100/20 day mvg avg area. That area held despite solid net gains but while that does introduce a strong note of ...

EURGBP, Sell at .8748 and .8769 (stop .8799), Wednesday

In line with yesterday's bullish call, the rally from last week's low extended. But, as expected, this bounce lacked the momentum to break through, on a closing basis, a Marabuzo line from March 20th or the 13 day mvg avg. Minor net gains were still posted but it is the upside rejection that we look to begin a renewal of the selling pressure that has marked the ...

GBPUSD - Buy at 1.4225 and 1.4196 (Stop 1.4161)

Our first bullish weekly target was met yesterday as last week's rise extended. CABLE was bought to the most positive levels traded for 8 week and although the speed and scope of recent gains means signals for sentiment are overbought, there is no sign yet of anything other than temporary profit taking. In view of this, Tuesday’s call is a Buy at 1.4225 but ...

USDCHF, Thursday, Sell at .9490 and .9519 (stop .9549)

Tuesday’s strong move to 2 month highs was aggressively reversed yesterday. Selling pressure was the dominant feature throughout but post FOMC price action saw the decline strongly deepen . This move took USDCHF back to the key 13 day mvg avg – though that point was unbroken on a closing basis but although Asia has not maintained its lows our signals for sentiment ...

Contrary to yesterday's call, 2 days of indecisive price action was followed by a renewal of investor buying interest. The most positive prices for 8 week were posted as the resulting demand took the currency pair towards a test of a 50% correction of the Dec-Feb decline. Overbought extremes are an increasing concern but despite a decline in Asia this morning’s ...

Neckline confirmed for a potential inverse Head & Shoulders on the BTC 4HR view. Daily also seem to be forming a iH&S, just needs to complete the trip from the head back to the neckline to make it valid. This could be the drive it needs to form the daily one successfully. Fun times :)

USDCAD - Temporarily Sell at 1.3085 and 1.3117 (stop 1.3149)

Early gains to new 9 month highs were in line with this week’s bullish outlook. But with USDCAD above 1.3100, and at overbought extremes, profit taking developed. The resulting setback was not a deep one but strong enough to indicate scope for a deeper, though temporary, decline. So, with caution, this morning’s call is a Sell at 1.3085 but leaving room to Sell ...
