Exponential Moving Average (EMA)

HTS's Exponential Moving Average (EMA) is an EMA based Moving Average indicator that incorporates an optional "swing" variable. It should be noted that this indicator is the same as Exponential Moving Average when the swing variable is set to 0.

Tip: Use for trade signals when you believe a market will have a major trend reversal.

General Settings

  • Exchange Website to monitor

  • Currency Pair to monitor for trade signals

  • Update Speed

  • Trade Signals

Tip: The exchange doesn't have to be the same exchange you are currently trading on.

Indicator Settings

  • Short Length

    • Represents the number of candles used for the shorter length calculation.

  • Long Length

    • Represents the number of candles used for the longer length calculation.

  • Swing

    • Adding a swing will create a minimum distance between the short and long result before the indicator will generate a signal.

Uses

This indicator is useful for confirming trend reversals due to its lagging nature. It can also be used in conjunction with other lagging indicators to further confirm a trend reversal.

The moving average based indicators (like this one) work well when they are evaluating data over a long period of time. This is because the longer the timeline, the more accurate the average gets.

Moving averages perform best when there is a lot of volatility (meaning an overall uptrend or an overall downtrend). When prices are stable there is not enough movement, causing the moving averages to become too sensitive. In this situation too many buy and sell signals will be produced.

A moving average is recommended with an update speed of at least 20 minutes. The common intervals are between 20 minutes and 3 hours.

The moving averages work best with mainstream crypto coins like BTC, LTC, and ETH.
