200 Day Moving Average on a Weekly Chart (3 Rules)

200 Day Moving Average on a Weekly Chart (3 Rules)

Barry D. Moore – CFTe Certified Financial Technician – IFTA

Learn how to properly use the 200-day moving average using these 3 special, simple and effective rules for success

Now is a good time to set up a basic stock chart to allow you to view the long-term direction of the stock market and create a trading rule.

This (2011 example) will help you understand where the market is and what the likely direction is going to be and how to replicate the same setup for today

You can use any charting package to achieve this goal.

Select  a Weekly Chart 5 Days Per Bar

Set the Moving Average to 40 (the reason we do this is if the chart is weekly meaning 5 days per bar the 40 bar moving average is equal 200-day0 day moving average).

We can refer to this as the Moving Average 40 on a weekly chart.

The 200 Day Moving Average is the bread and butter of the Technical Analyst.

Use these rules to enable you to understand the 40 Bar Moving Average.

When the price on the chart is above the 40 bar moving average the index is in an up-trend (see the green boxes below)

When the price is fluctuating on or around the moving average is is in a sideways consolidation

When the price is clearly below the 40 bar moving average the index is of course in a down-trend (see the red boxes)

So what is the rule to use to interpret this chart.

Ask yourself this question.  On a weekly chart, do you really what to be investing long (expecting price rises) when the price is below the 40 bar moving average (theRED BOXES)

When the Price Pattern of the Index breaks down through the 40 bar moving average = Bearish = Sell = Go Short.

When the Price Patter of the Index break out above the 40 bar moving average = Bullish = Buy = Go Long.

Yes 200 Days Moving Averages is really helpful for the technical analysts. The crossover of the moving averages is also helpful and can get idea regarding the trend of the market. 50 Days Moving Average crossover or cross down to 200 Days Moving Average can also give idea regarding the trend but one needs to cross check the trend with other indicators too. Nice post.

You have got a real gift writing. Totally enjoyed this
