Learn Forex – Guppy Multiple Moving Averages (GMMA) in Forex Trading

Learn Forex – Guppy Multiple Moving Averages (GMMA) in Forex Trading

FXPath has bunch of articles in FX trading and analysis. This GMMA method sorta caught my eye and I've started to investigate it as an entry tool although my analysis tool is still Market Club trade triagles.

The FXpath web site links to and I'll be posting excerpts from that site which give a sense of what is going on. My methodology is already set but in between trades I like to look at new ways of looking at things. And admittedly I let my unconscious mind tell me what strikes my fancy and what does not.

I listen to my instincts. More on that later.

Learn Forex ( – The GMMA, or Guppy Multiple Moving Averages, was developed by Daryl Guppy, an Australian trader. See the accompanying EUR/USD chart with the GMMA set of moving averages overlaid on top. Used by many forex traders, this multi-faceted indicator combines two different sets of moving averages. One set (the longer-term moving averages: 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and 60 periods) represents a currency pair’s long-term traders, and the other set (the shorter-term moving averages: 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, and 15 periods) represents a currency pair’s short-term traders. There are several ways to interpret the GMMA, the most recommended of which has to do with looking at the separation between each individual moving average as well as the separation between the two sets of moving averages. These separations reveal vital information regarding trend strength, both short-term and long-term, as well as pullbacks within a trend and potential impending changes in trend. They can also provide specific trade entries and exits in the direction of the prevailing trend.
