ok, After my unusual large loss today I am going to revisit the moving average. I would say 80% of all indicators involve a time period or and average in the calculation and that makes u think then arent most people just buying the ma average anyway? looking for any thoughts or ideas on the moving average as well as your experience with ma. lets not involve macd lets keep it to the moving average. all different types are fine any tweaks fine and multiple are fine but lets keep it simple pardon the pun. If trading price action it seems to me that going with the trend requires a latent entry. after the mkt has turned so isnt this truly just a break of the moving average after a change in direction? it seems to me that ma get a bad rap but actually can be the shortcut to even doing technical analysis bar x bar. good bad ugly just post whatever about ma.
