## Guppy Multiple Moving Average Oscillator

by Brian Brown, 5218 days ago

The Guppy Multiple Moving Average is a technical indicator that displays two sets of moving averages. The first set contains six exponential moving averages that use short time frames to monitor the trading activity of short-term traders. The second set contains six exponential moving averages that use long time frames or periods to monitor the trading activity of long-term traders. The GMMA formula can be found here GMMA - Guppy Multiple Moving Average.

The Guppy MMA Oscillator is a technical indicator developed by Leon Wilson. The oscillator line, which is called the fast Guppy, is what this function returns. The second line is called the slow GUPPY or the trigger line and it is simply the exponential moving average of the oscillator line.
The fast GUPPY is calculated by taking the difference between the average value of all moving averages in the first set (described above) and the average value of all moving averages in the second set (described above).
The slow GUPPY -Trigger line- is calculated by smoothing the fast GUPPY with an exponential moving average.
SlowGuppy = ema(GuppyOscillator(), 13);

In the above example, I have used a 13-bar exponential moving average to calculate the slow Guppy MMA line.

As with many trend following indicators, a bullish signal occurs when the fast GUPPY line crosses above the slow GUPPY line and a bearish signal when the fast GUPPY line crosses below the slow GUPPY line.

Example of a bullish signal rule:
rule1 = cross(GuppyOscillator(), ema(GuppyOscillator(), 13));

Example of a bearish signal rule:
rule1 = cross(ema(GuppyOscillator(), 13), GuppyOscillator());
