This is one example of how I will look to use MA in helping me stack position in this coming quarter.
As GBPAUD had a previous 3 months worth of consolidation , the move down the right shoulder was smooth, but yet I could not capitalize fully on it, taking pockets and chunks along the way instead.
Hence I will be looking to use MA to assist in stacking, whereas stacking shall only occur in smooth n gradual trend.
Since 200 MA is used , therefore trend will be defined as min. 8 days ( 8 x24 periods) and best 10 days.
However, the veto will still be fib5/6 levels and better , WR of multi boxes.
However in this chart, it shows how MA can be used in a discretionary method. Here I have chose to use 200MA in D1 setting, since month to month EURAUD is still up.
I can only say that at the end of the day, usage of any technical tool will be best optimized in a discretionary manner.
