Moving Averages (MAs) are among most commonly used indicators in Forex. They are easy to set and easy to interpret.

Speaking simple, moving averages simply measure the average move of the price during a given time period.
It smooths out the price data, allowing to see market trends and tendencies.

Wow!!! Thanks for the prompt response; but I think I should just tell you exactly what it is I am looking for. A linear weighted moving average that can be displaced (preferably negatively) and still have the MA line show on the current candle as though it wasn't displaced in the first place. It also should not repaint.

The Hurst displaced MA projects a dotted straight line into the future. Is this correct? In your opinion, does it repaint?

Many thanks once again for all the help.

 

I don't know, sorry. That's all I had. Good luck!

 

functions really??

 

HOW DO YOU CREATE A 16 BAR XMA WITH A MULTIPLIER CONSTANT OF 1.3% ABOVE (16XMA) AND SAME BELOW?

 

You'll probably need some MA Envelopes indicator.
Take a look a this one: Envelopes.mq4

 

Dear Sir, I just read article about McGinley Dynamics http://www.mta.org/eweb/dynamicpage.aspx?webcode=journal-technical-analy... , where John R. McGinley argue that his indicator has an advantage against Moving Averages. However, article was written in 1997 and Mr. McGinley states that it is impossible to program his indicator. I want to know more about this indicator and did research on web but unfortunately can't find anything else and up to date. Do you familiar with this indicator and is it better than MA?

 

I've made a copy for further reference. Thank you!
Yet, I haven't seen this exact report before to comment, sorry. But I can tell one thing - it's possible to code anything this days. I've seen sophisticated programmers who even manage to build & code indicators with artificial intelligence... how they work I don't know, but the possibilities of indicator/EA coding has moved far beyond a simple challenge of coding a Moving Average - these are hundreds of custos MAs with smoothing, shifting other adjustments etc. The best know forum for finding MT4 indicators is forex-tsd.com

Well done, thanks for the good work, please, what would your suggest to be recommended setting for 4hours time frame. thanks once more.

 

20 SMA to start with.
Add 200 EMA for long term trends, see what they can tell you together.

 

Hello can any one give me / guide me how to scalp? I a m new to this world and IS THERE ANYBODY ?

 

thanks for your information. Now I can use this some. please tell me where I will put this 10 ma or 20 ema etc. It is period ?
what will i select from apply to setting ? thank you

 

"10 MA" means 10-period moving average.
When they say "10 MA", you can't however know whether it's EMA or SMA or any other MA (Moving average).

(Usually it'll be EMA by default, otherwise try to find additional reference in the content).

 

Is there an alert when 2 MAs cross? Thanks Kim

 
 

Really a very good information that will be so helpful.

 

When I read about periods for the MA or any indicator, the periods are expressed in days eg. 10-day period, 200-day period, 40-day period, etc. But is this actually the case? Are the periods actually an average of days or are they actually an average of bars in a timeframe? In other words, if I'm using a H1 timeframe and have the MA set to 24 periods, are these periods actually an averaging of the past 24 days or are they actually an averaging of the past 24 hours?

thanks alot for explanation it's wonderful . but wat are the best settings for MA when trading?

 

Hello
"Allows you to enter two ema periods and it will then show you at |
| Which point they crossed over. It is more usful on the shorter |
| periods that get obscured by the bars / candlesticks and when |
| the zoom level is out. Also allows you then to remove the emas |
| from the chart. (emas are initially set at 5 and 6)". This is for two EMAS crossover
I would like the codo for thee EMAS 10 EMA, 25EMA and 50EMA cross over ¿is it available and how to implement it?
regards

 

hi,very useful info,but I would like to know what parameters to input for the EMA for the 30M time frame. thanks

 

Pls can anyone tell me how to use the MA in MT4 15 Mins?

 

The most profound and yet the most silmpe comment on Support/Resistance was made by Mark McConnell: All trends start or stop at support or resistance. All we have to do as traders is figure out whether the Support/Resistance is acting like a trampoline or a breakable thin layer of ice.
