Twin MA Crossover Alert System for MetaTrader (MT4)

Moving Averages are widely used in trading - they filter out noise from random price movements and can identify high quality market entry and exit points.

Moving averages are a lagging indicator as they are based on historical price action. The most commonly used moving averages are the SMA (Simple moving average) and the EMA (Exponential moving average). The EMA is more biased towards the most recent price data as it is weighted accordingly.

Moving averages are commonly used to determine trend direction and to determine support and resistance levels for an asset.

Shorter moving averages favour short term trading whereas longer moving averages such as the 200 day EMA favour longer term trading. The 200 period moving average is widely followed by market participants with breaks above or below it considered to be notable trading signals.

Moving averages when used together can also provide important trading signals. If two moving averages of different periods are plotted on the same chart trading signals can be generated from moving average crossovers.

Typically traders will use a short term moving average and a longer term moving average. When the short term moving average crosses up over the long term moving average this is considered as a bullish signal to puy the asset under consideration. When the short term moving average crosses down below the long term moving average, this is considered as a bearish signal to sell the underlying asset.

Note: The Triple Moving Average Crossover system (Java/MT4 hybrid product) offers significantly more functionality than a twin MA Crossover system.

Some traders also use multiple or stacked moving average crossover trading systems where the third moving average acts as a trend filter. This approach can help traders to identify significant trends in the market.

Screen time is hugely reduced as the system alerts the trader via email or on screen alert when trader specified crossover conditions are met.



Using an automated alert system reduces the temptation to rush into a trade due to boredom or 'needing' to be in the market. Just because you don't have a position doesn't mean you're not trading! A systematic approach creates a disciplined approach to trading... this can often make the difference between losing and winning



Traders can tune the system to match their exact moving average crossover requirements. Therefore the system can be adapted to suit short term scalping or long term position trading requirements.
