Updated at:316 days 14 hours ago
What is the Dual Moving Average?
Moving average is widely used in technical analysis, usually combined with time sequenced data. It is mainly used to smooth out noise of short-term volatility to focus on the long-term trends and cycles. After many years’ development, there are many types of moving averages, the exponential moving average, the weighted moving average and the cumulative moving average. Dual moving averages use the simple moving average (SMA).
Firstly, we calculate the moving average of each trading day based on the close prices of past N days. Then we connect those points to form a line, called N-day moving average. The dual moving average uses two moving average of different terms, 5 day and 60 day, for example.
1. About Dual Moving Average Quantitative Strategy
In the dual moving average quantitative strategy, a long term moving average (LTMA) and a short-term moving average (STMA) are used to identify buy and sell opportunities. When the short term moving average breaks above the long term moving average (golden cross), the strategy will go long. When the short-term moving average crosses below the long-term moving average (death crossover), the strategy will go short.
