Let’s take a look at how to set up the Guppy multiple moving average.
This technique consists of combining TWO groups of exponential moving averages (EMAs) with differing time periods (or lengths).
The twelve periods used are 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and 60.
The 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, and 15 EMAs are used to show the short-term trend’s momentum.
The 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and 60 EMAs show the longer-term trend’s momentum.
Now, let’s show both groups of EMAs on the chart.
We can identify trend reversals and continuations with these two groups of EMAs.
The Guppy Multiple Moving Average identifies changes in trend direction or gauges the strength of the current trend.
The degree of separation between the short- and long-term moving averages can be used as an indicator of trend strength.
If there’s a WIDE separation, this indicates that the prevailing trend is strong.
If there’s a NARROW separation or lines that intertwine, this indicates a weakening trend or a period of consolidation.
