Let’s explore ……….

 

200 Simple Moving Average with Bollinger Band:

 

Before exploring 200 Simple Moving Average with Bollinger Band at first we learn to know what is Simple Moving Average and why 200 Simple Moving Average.

 

 

What is Simple Moving Average?

 

Moving Average is various types. E.g.  Simple Moving Average (SMA), Exponential Moving Average (EMA), Smoothed Moving Average (SMMA) etc.

Simple Moving Average (SMA) is the most uses of them because of its easy to calculate and understand.

 

 

Definition and Calculation of Simple Moving Average (SMA):

A simple moving average is formed by calculating the average price of a currency over a specific number of periods.

 

 

Most moving averages are based on closing prices; for example, a 5-day simple moving average is the five-day sum of closing prices divided by five.

As its name implies, a moving average is an average that moves.

Old data is dropped as new data becomes available, causing the average to move along the time scale.

The example below shows a 5-day moving average evolving over three days.

Daily Closing Prices: 11,12,13,14,15,16,17

 

First day of 5-day SMA: (11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15) / 5 = 13

 

Second day of 5-day SMA: (12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16) / 5 = 14

 

Third day of 5-day SMA: (13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17) / 5 = 15

 

The first day of the moving average simply covers the last five days.

The second day of the moving average drops the first data point (11) and adds the new data point (16).

The third day of the moving average continues by dropping the first data point (12) and adding the new data point (17).

In the example above, price

es gradually increase from 11 to 17 over a total of seven days.

Notice that the moving average also rises from 13 to 15 over a three-day calculation period.

Also, notice that each moving average value is just below the last price. For example, the moving average for day one equals 13 and the last price is 15. Prices the prior four days were lower and this causes the moving average to lag.
