Technical Analysis and Generating Signals
MA Envelope can be traded using several different trading rules. The main method of generating Forex trading signals is to use the price penetrating the upper channel or lower channel.
Price penetrating the upper channel is a long buy signal.
Price penetrating the lower channel is a short sell signal.
In a trending market the MA points upwards in an uptrend market or downwards in a down trending market. It is good to use the envelopes together with other technical indicators such as trend lines so as to confirm the signals generated.
