A moving average (MA) is a popular technical analysis trading tool that smooths out price data by creating a constantly updated average price, over a specific time period. Used as a single line by itself, a moving average is often overlaid on price charts to indicate price trends.
What does a Moving average cross tell you?
A Moving average crossover occurs when a faster moving average (a shorter period moving average) crosses a slower moving average (a longer period moving average). In other words, this is when the shorter period moving average line crosses a longer period moving average line. In trading & investing, this meeting point can be used to signal a change in trend or market structure.
Price crossovers occur when the price of an asset close above or below a moving average and are commonly used by traders to identify shifts in momentum, especially in a trending market.
Moving average indicator uses – Technical analysis
Different traders use moving averages for different reasons. Some use them as their primary analytical tool, while others simply use them as a confidence builder to back up their investment decisions.
If you’re using price or moving average crossovers in any part of your trading strategy, you know how critical it is to be alerted as soon as a crossover happens, or to be easily able to scan a range of financial instruments for recent MA crosses!

I always check my charts and the moving averages prior to taking a position. Is the price above or below the moving average? That works better than any tool I have. I try not to go against the moving averages; it is self-destructive.
