Moving Averages and trading Forex (crossovers etc.)

  1. what MA's for you use for MA crossover trades when trading Forex?...per what time frame?

    or...what MA's do you look at alone (1 MA at a time) per time frame...

    just trying to see what the crossing MA' combinations there are out there for various timeframes...

    Note: yes, I know there are no perfect indicators...just interested

    I don't think you got what it takes

    after 2 years a man gives up MAs, its been 2 years for you and you still blow smoke up MAs ass

    you might fall under category of those people who never learn

  4. I find MA crossovers to be useless considering how far they lag. However I do prefer to use MA's for S/R and also as a stop loss.
  5. 50 and 200 day, not to trade off but to be aware of, it's a cross which the market pays attention to.
  6. I use the same ones, and for the exact same reason!
  7. Great minds think alike......!
  8. If the market is Fractal, none of this matters!!
  9. huh?:confused:

    This is a good counter-point. In addition to your interest in indicators, you should read about fractals and randomness in markets. If MA's work for you,then great. It just helps to have a view from the other side, so you won't feel terrible when your stochastics (or whatever indic.) keep you in a losing trade!
