What is the 200-day simple moving average?

The 200 day moving average is one of the most popular technical analysis indicators because it provides valuable insights into long-term trends and potential entry and exit points.

How to Use the 50-Day Moving Average

The 50-day moving average is the most popular technical analysis indicator in the world. Unlike shorter time-frame averages like the 20-day moving average or longer ones like the 200-day moving average, the 50-Day SMA provides a balanced, intermediate view. It captures enough of the recent price action to be relevant but also includes enough data to minimize noise and false signals.

How the 20-day moving average works

Active traders rely heavily on technical analysis indicators to guide their entry and exit strategies. And the 20 day moving average is one of most popular indicators used by day and swing traders. In fact, it might be the second best-known indicator behind the 50 day moving average.

Bollinger Bands are a technical analysis trading tool created by John Bollinger, a long-time technician of the markets, in the early 1980s.
