Moving Average Crossover

A crossover occurs when a faster Moving Average (a shorter period moving average) crosses either above or below a slower (i.e. longer period) moving average. A crossover that moves above a slower MA is considered a bullish crossover; one that moves below is considered a bearish crossover.

  2. Choose MA Crossover and click Add to add the study to the Applied Studies group.
