2. Moving Average

All markets generally trade above the 15 moving average going up and below the average moving down.


Alpha Hunters use the Moving Average model to know what the current trends are doing.

  • Markets will typically come back to the Moving Average as it's trending and even take them out, which is a setup for our model called FAIL (Fail is in this list below).
    • Meaning, if the market, for example, is trending up and the prices drop below the MA, it does not always mean the market is changing direction, and it could advance up more after dropping below the MA.

  • All Alpha Hunters Trading Cycle (TC) Lows happen below the Moving Average (MA). The TC Low to Low bar counts average 15 to 28 bars. Recognize this as you are trading.
    • Meaning, if the market is, for example, 25 bars from the last TC low and moving down towards the MA, it may more than likely take out the MA level to set up the TC Low pattern.

  • We recommend tracking many chart time frames during these moves to see where each time frame is in the pattern.
    • We have an indicator called CycleWave and an app called Market Pulse that tracks these patterns for you automatically.
