Moving Average Bands

Crafted as a tool to aid traders, this indicator helps identify trends, support and resistance levels, and price reversals. Its unique feature lies in determining trend direction and dynamic support and resistance through the amalgamation of Moving Averages. This combination provides valuable insights for recognizing and confirming trends, dynamic support and resistance, and filtering out the noise in price movements.

Key Features & Settings

  • Trend Identification: An application of Moving Averages is the identification of trends in markets. This is established through the calculation of the average price over a defined period, thereby, smoothing out price fluctuations and providing more emphasis on the overall market direction. If the price is above the green Moving Average bands, the price can be considered to be in an ascending trend. If the price is below the red Moving Average bands, the price can be considered to be in a descending trend.
  • Support and Resistance: Two Moving Averages create a band that can change in colour and depth and can act as dynamic support and resistance levels.
    If the price is above the Moving Average bands, and the price is approaching the Moving Average bands, displayed in green the price may find support. If the price is below the Moving Average band and the price is approaching the Moving Average band displayed in red, the price may find resistance.
  • Users have control over changing the type of Moving Average.
  • Users can change the period of the Moving Averages in Indicator inputs.
  • Users have the option to customize the colour of the trend direction.

Parameters

Fast Moving Average: The period of the Fast Simple Moving Average is a period of 34.
Slow Moving Average: The period of the Slow Simple Moving Average is a period of 100.

The rationale behind this indicator involves the identification of trend direction and dynamic support and resistance. This was created using two Moving Averages, one fast and one slow which have different periods. The two Moving Averages form a band that can vary in depth depending on the price action. The band provides trend direction depending on the colour as mentioned and possible levels of dynamic support and resistance. It is essential to view these levels and trends as integral components of an analysis process and not adhere to them indiscriminately.
