# Which moving average is best? – Responsible Day Trading Review

The correlation coefficient of the moving average of all the recent values for the previous period. The moving averages are chosen to be moving averages, which represent the historical trend of an indicator (this can be a moving average of the last five minutes).

To find the best moving average for your indicator, you should use a moving average that is more than or equal to the number of days in the previous period (i.e. 3 = best moving average). For this reason, the moving average will generally be positive (i.e. the longer period of time is lower than the shorter period of time).

Moving averages usually show up as large or medium signals if the data is highly correlated, and vice versa. With moving averages you can also choose a range of values to indicate your confidence level of the data’s future performance.

Which moving average is worst?

The moving average of the smallest trend, which represents the smallest range of values for the trend from day to day.

The moving average of the next largest trend is usually more reliable. These moving averages are usually negative.

Which moving average, least weighting, should be used?

When determining which trend is the least weighted in the indicator, the moving average should be the one least weighted, or the average moving average weighted below the mean. See Moving Averages and Moving Averages for more information.

How are the mean and standard deviation calculated?

The mean is the average value of the data divided evenly over a range, and the standard deviation is the average of the values within that range.

Using the standard deviation of a stock price as an indicator is an approximation of the risk a stock has to be able to maintain its value. Using the mean over the course of months is a more accurate illustration of the average value of a series of values, and the standard deviation of an orderbook.

To find this value, you take the mean between the first and last 5 days of a period, and divide it by the last 10.

How do you choose which day to take a sample?

The same process for choosing a sample date as the date you want to use for the moving average is used to determine the sample date.

Find the number of days between the start of the indicator period and the start of the time interval you want to analyze.

Enter the new date/time into a spreadsheet and compare the values of the moving prices and your sample date
