Moving average along with Support and Resistance

Hey guys,

How many of you incorporate Moving Average indicators along with support and resistance?

And what time frame MAs would be suitable if you are viewing 15/30 and hourly charts?

Also anything you need to weary of or should take into consideration (that should be considered) while using Moving Averages?



Eventhough there are some popular MA values like 20-50-100-200, it’s best to find the most convenient MA value for your time frame and your pairs. Start from 5 MA on your popular pair and time frame and increase one by one. You will see an MA which is working as major support or resistance. This will be the best MA value for your pair and time frame.

Well it is a matter of choice and it is hard to tell you something unambiguous. I use EMA 100 on 1H chart as auxiliary tool for determining trend power, while my fellow uses default MACD on the same timeframe and it goes quite successfully for him. Personally, I adhere to the opinion that any indicator and its type work with the market, but only at particular times (not always even when you get divergence cross). That’s why it requires trader to understand the market clean.

The D1 20EMA is a classic for tech folks.
Think about what it represents…

We had recent threads with lots of discussion and advice on moving averages…

Try a search or at least scroll down a couple of pages before more of the same

questions and advice become duplicated, triplicated, etc…


C’mon mate- you know to expect that by now!
You can’t go more than 5 full trading days without someone asking to recommend a US-friendly broker!


Haha… Yes, I should know better ;))
