Combined Momentum MA (Equal-Length EMA/SMA Crossover)

  • This momentum and trend-following strategy captures the majority of any trending move, and works well on high timeframes.
  • It uses an equal-period EMA and SMA crossover to detect trend acceleration/deceleration, since an EMA places a greater weight and significance on the most recent data.
  • To reduce noise and optimize entries, we combined this with an overall trend bias for further confluence.

How it works:
  • Signals are determined by the crossover of an EMA and SMA of the same length, e.g. EMA-50 and SMA-50.
  • The overall trend bias is determined using a slower SMA golden/death cross, e.g. SMA-50 and SMA-100.
  • The signal is stronger when it occurs in confluence with the overall trend bias, e.g. when EMA-50 crosses over SMA-50, while above the SMA-100. This is analogous to only opening long positions in a bull market.

Indicator description:
  • GREEN: Up Trend ( EMA is above SMA , while EMA is above BIAS_MA. This shows a bullish confluence.)
  • YELLOW: No Trend ( EMA / SMA crossover and BIAS_MA are not in confluence.)
  • RED = Down Trend ( EMA is below SMA , while EMA is below BIAS_MA. This shows a bearish confluence.)
เอกสารเผยแพร่: YELLOW has been refined to show when both Momentum MAs are above or below the BIAS_MA:
  • OLIVE: Both EMA and SMA are above BIAS_MA, meaning the overall trend is bullish, however EMA is below SMA, meaning the short term momentum is bearish.
  • ORANGE: Both EMA and SMA are below BIAS_MA, meaning the overall trend is bearish, however EMA is above SMA, meaning the short term momentum is bullish.
  • YELLOW: EMA is above BIAS_MA, while SMA is below BIAS_MA, and vice versa.
