Video Summary

Moving averages remain the most commonly-used method of evaluating the current price trend. Moving averages reduce the impact of exchange rate fluctuations making it easier for you to better assess overall direction. By incorporating so-called "fast" and "slow" moving averages on the same price chart, it is possible to generate trade signals showing potential buy and sell opportunities.
