(Video) How to Apply Moving Averages as a Trading Tool

By Elliott Wave International

A moving average (MA) is one of the simplest technical tools an analyst or trader can use. The most common one is the simple moving average (SMA). A 200-period SMA often determines trend, support and resistance. Dual moving averages, which are popular, are the basis of many trading systems.

In this 6-minute video lesson, Elliott Wave International's Jeffrey Kennedy explores different types of moving averages and how you can apply single, dual and multiple moving averages on your charts.
