    i discovered these as the default for zero line trader (a front end for IB)

    does anyone use 14 ma, 34 sma?

    any thoughts on them?

    In and of themselves, they aren't bad.

    It all depends on how you use them.

    Good trading,

  3. They are probably there because of Woodies CCI club.

    34ema is often used for trend
    14sma corresponds with 14cci

    Well, they won't lie to you.

    And on a day with any type of trend (of course, there is always a trend on some fractal) you can get a nice retracement trade.

    Nice article btw, kiwi.

    interestingly, since 1995, there hasnt been one instance where 2 consecutive closes across the 14 month ma didnt create a change a trend ($SPX)

    It's a never-ending story. They are 110 & 20 (Larson)or 200 and 50( O’Neil ) or 40 and 10 week ( Bernie ).

    incidently, this month closed over the 14 simple ma by 7 cents

    I find 9 and 27 period smoothened MA shifted 5 periods forward very useful. Shifting the MA eliminates a lot of fake signals

  10. It lags so much it leads.
