Long/Short Term Moving Average Indicator

The Long/Short Term Moving Average uses several moving averages with different periods to account for long, medium and short term trends. It results from the average of ten different simple moving averages with different lookback periods.

Given a start and end period (Example: 30 and 300), the long/short term moving average indicator calculates ten moving averages with periods that span from "start" to "end" values you have specified. (Given the previous example, the different moving averages will get: 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180, 210, 240, 270 and 300). Once these moving averages are computed, the formula averages their values for each trading bar and assigns the result to the long/short term moving average indicator.

The long/short term moving average indicator is more suitable for medium and long term traders. One of its main advantages is that the effects of short term fluctuations are minimized but not ignored. This will greatly reduces the number of false buy and sell signals.

The trading indicator is called "LS_Term_MA" and it contains the following parameters:
Series: This argument gets a time-series. Usually the close price is used but you can create a long/short term moving average of any other indicator or time-series.
Start: This is the lookback period that is used to calculate the first simple moving average.
End: This is the last lookback period. The difference between two simple moving average periods (Step) is calculated by subtracting "End" from "Start" then dividing the result by 9.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
