This week I’ve got a question by Vinayak who asked…
“Which is the best moving average to use?”
And I’m sure many of you want to know the answer as well.
But here’s the thing:
There isn’t a best moving average out there.
Because the word best is subjective. You can use a moving average to act as a trend filter, to identify areas of value, to set your stop loss, and etc.
So, what’s your purpose of using a moving average indicator?
Once you can answer that question… then maybe you can find a moving average parameter that suits your trading approach.
So in today’s episode, you’ll learn:
- How to find the best moving average for your trading approach
- How to use moving average to identify areas of value
- How to use moving average as a trend filter so you can trade with the trend

Hello Rayner…. your blog and your video series are really awesome and very help full. I m regular visitor your blog. I have a question…. which time frame are consideration for trade? example cadjpy pair daily chart showing up trend and price stay in sr zone for buy … but weakly chart still downtrend and price sr zone and bearish engulfing pattern… so which time frame i m consider for trade..

I will give more weight to the entry timeframe. Alternatively, you can wait till both are aligned before taking the trade.

You can’t force the markets to move in your favor.
All you can do is to trail your stops and let it reward you.
