Up To 8 Moving Averages

Recommended Posts

All trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits.

Hi All,

 

I am happy to announce a new feature on the New Web Trading Platform, (one that was suggested by quite a few of the platform users). You are now able to make use of up to 8 moving averages as shown in the screenshot below.

If you have any more ideas on how we could improve moving averages then please let us know.

 

Thanks

Hi Anton,

 

Could you please add Exponential Moving Averages? They are a useful addition to Simple Moving Averages which you already have.

 

Thanks

Hi ,  which platform did you mean? I think they all have ema's. On the new platform it's listed by the letter E and so nowhere near 'Moving Average' which is not how most platforms do it so you may have missed it. Smoothed, Linear Weighted and Hull would be useful sub section additions.

Good morning

 

Thank you for the update. Is there any chance of getting the Hull Moving Average or Guppy Moving Average on the system? Furthermore is there a way of then hiding the actual price action just to focus on the averages?

 

Thanks

Difference moving averages don't make any difference, existing MAS can be adjusted with settings to give desired results.

 

Use stochastics , it ia good price action analysis indicator..It is used by professionals, you don't need individual candles..........they can be confusing.Pick out the relevant info from this post.

Moving averages make a great trend indicator as well as providing dynamic support and resistance. The Hull MA is a bit different as it is designed to greatly reduce lag. There are plenty of Hull MA indicators to download for the MT4.

 

Here is a link to Alan Hull to explain the indicator for himself;

Yes, the fewer the periods the more false signals, that's just the same as stochastics then, in fact it's the same for any indicator. The more periods used for the calculations a later the arrival of the signal but fewer false ones.

The faster the moving averages, the more the false signals, the greater the losses.The stochastics is king of all indicators, it eliminates the need for price action candles false noise.

EA trader - asked this a number of times but never had a reply. It seems you don’t like technical analysis and you moan about it a lot, yet you use EA’s...

 

How? Why?

I never said I did not like t/a , I just use it for very high probability entries.I don't look at 50 candles to read price action, to read rice action, I just use sexy stochastics.

 

Where did I say I did not like TA?tTA is 5 % of the trading skills.

 

Iam part of the TA rebuttal team, we all work in teams.

    • I think those swings were tradeable with a reduced position size on the Nikkei which tends to respect weekly pivots during European and American trading hours.
    • @dmedin, I don't know the answer but there may be others on the IG Community that are more knowledgable than me or even use EWT both successfully and are hugely profitable applying it. They may be aware of certain assets where the probabilities of using EWT are in their favour due to confirmed historical evidence. There may well be evidence that certain assets adhere to EWT more than others on a historical basis. Of course that does not guarantee that the assets will do so in the future but it just increases the odds and the likelihood of it occurring again.  Just because I don't have the knowledge or evidence does not mean such assets do not exist where the application of EWT would be greatly increase your chances of successful and profitable trades. I personally do not use or apply EWT to my trading and it has not hindered me. I would be interested in knowing which assets adhere to EWT more than others and what the percentages are. For example are there any assets which adhere to EWT historically over 70%? Let us put Natural Gas to one side for the moment as I personally think due to the extreme volatility you would have to be a supreme EWT technician to be able to consistently make profitable trades on Natural Gas using EWT. If you put NG to one side then are there any other assets which say adhere to EWT historically from say 50% - 70% of the time? I do not know the answer but if anyone does know then it would be very interesting and helpful to the IG Community, especially for those who are genuinely interested in EWT and applying it to their trading.  Also for those assets which say do adhere to EWT over 50% of the time how does a trader know that it will so on the next trend, next move up or down, etc? How does one establish apart from a failed trade after the event on whether the asset is going to adhere to EWT?
