What Are Moving Averages?

A moving average is simply a way to smooth out price action over time. By “moving average”, we mean that you are taking the average closing price of a currency pair for the last ‘X’ number of periods. On a chart, it would look like this:

Moving Average of last 10 periods

Like every indicator, a moving average indicator is used to help us forecast future prices. By looking at the slope of the moving average, you can better determine the potential direction of market prices.

As we said, moving averages smooth out price action.

There are different types of moving averages and each of them has their own level of “smoothness”.

Generally, the smoother the moving average, the slower it is to react to the price movement.

The choppier the moving average, the quicker it is to react to the price movement. To make a moving average smoother, you should get the average closing prices over a longer time period.

Now, you’re probably thinking, “C’mon, let’s get to the good stuff. How can I use this to trade?”

In this section, we first need to explain to you the two major types of moving averages:

  1. Simple
  2. Exponential

We’ll also teach you how to calculate them and give the pros and cons of each. Just like in every other lesson in the School of Pipsology, you need to know the basics first!

After you’ve got that on lockdown like Argentinian soccer player Lionel Messi’s ball-handling skills, we’ll teach you the different ways to use moving averages and how to incorporate them into your trading strategy.

By the end of this lesson, you’ll be just as smooth as Messi’s!

Are you ready?

If you are, give us a “Heck yeah!”

If not, go back and reread the intro.

Once you’re pumped and ready to go, head to the next page.


       移动平均线是单纯的把价格的波动变得平滑的。 所谓的“移动平均”是指,那组货币对,之前一段'X'数量的收盘价平均值。 在图表上,它看起来就像这样:






       反言之,移动平均线的波动越强,它对价格的反应就越快。 为了使平均线显得比较平滑,你应该使用较长周期的收盘价,来制作平均线。



             1. 简单的
             2. 指数的

       我们还会教你如何计算,以及告诉你,它们的优点和缺点。 就像在BabyPips.com学校的其他课程中一样,您需要先知道的基本的知识!
