The creation of the moving average strip was established on the conviction that more is better with regards to plotting moving averages on a chart. The lace is framed by a progression of eight to 15 exponential moving averages (EMAs), differing from extremely present moment to long haul averages, all plotted on a similar chart. The resulting strip of averages is proposed to give a sign of both the trend direction and strength of the trend. A more extreme point of the moving averages – and greater separation between them, making the lace fan out or extend – shows a solid trend.
