It is a tracking tool in order to identify whether the trend has ended or reversed and whether a new trend is taking it’s shape.

Let’s take the BTC/USDT trading pair at MEXC Global as an example. By default choice, our graph includes a 5-day, 10-day, 30-day, and 60-day moving average. In these options, you can choose the average for the period you want.

Moving Average as combined indicator

The MA can also be viewed as a combined indicator. For example, when the 5, 10, 30, and 60 daily moving averages appear in order from top to bottom. We often call it bullish permutation, suggesting that there is a higher possibility of a rising market.
