Exponential Moving Averages - 5 min chart

Recommended Posts

Newbie question - can anyone tell me what the units of time are when customizing the EMAs for a 5 minute chart? I am used to dealing with 50 and 20-day EMAs in investing, but new to day trading and want to set the EMAs to 9, 15. 65 and 200 min EMAs.

Hi     the number refers to the number of periods of the chart you are using so a 20 ema on a 5 min chart is the ema of the last 20  5 minute candles. The 20 and 50 day ema can only refer to a daily chart and is the ema of the prior 20 and 50 daily candles.


To put the ema of a different time period onto a chart you need to do some multiplication and division, so to put the 20 ema of a 15 min chart onto a 5 min chart you need to use the 5 min 60 ema.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
