How to use moving averages as support and resistance levels
For more details, let’s look at an example of the movement of the GBP / USD currency pair with the EMA plot. And note that dynamic support and resistance levels are formed.
As we see that prices always touch 50 EMA to test and bounce back down. 50 EMA as if like a resistance in the price movement of the GBP / USD currency pair, this method seems okee for trading!
We can also use a combination of two moving averages to create a trading zone and some (intraday) traders will open a BUY / SELL position when the price is in the middle of both of these moving averages. For more details, please see the example below:
The following is the movement of the GBP / USD currency pair – 15 Minutes using a combination of 10 EMA and 20 EMA.
By looking at the graph above it can be seen that some time the price passed 10 EMA as many as PIPS and returned down. And this area can be used as a zone or area of interest .
Breaking Support and Resistance Levels
Now you know that moving averages can be used as support and resistance levels and combining two moving averages can create a zone. And now all you need to know is that support and resistance levels can also be broken ( breakdown or breakout ).
Note that the 50 EMA is a very strong resistance for the movement of the GBP / USD currency pair, 15 Minute.
Even so 50 EMA can be penetrated (marked in the red box) and continue its reversal so that the 50 EMA which was originally a resistance level is now a support level.
