These moving averages can be analyzed separately or as a group for trend identification and trend change signals.

There are no special formulas here; the Moving Average Ribbon is just a quick and easy method to add multiple moving averages to your chart.

Determine the number of moving averages (MAs) to add and the number of periods for each. In linhthach.vnACP, this is accomplished by specifying the number of periods in the shortest MA, the increment in periods between each MA, & the total number of MAs in the ribbon. You may also specify the type of moving average (simple or exponential). For example, you may want 8 EMAs on your daily chart in 10-period increments, with the shortest being a 10-day EMA và the longest being an 80-day EMA.

Each of the moving averages in the ribbon is calculated using the standard SMA or EMA formulas. Please see our Moving Averages article in for more details on those calculations.

Interpreting Moving Average Ribbons

Since the Moving Average Ribbon is just a collection of moving averages, the interpretation is similar to that used with one or two moving averages. With single moving averages, you can look at the direction of the moving average and whether it is above or below the price bars. With two moving averages, you can look for crossovers of the short-term MA over the long-term MA and vice versa. The ribbon allows you to lớn look at these relationships for multiple moving averages at once:

If all the averages are moving in the same direction, this indicates a strong trend. The longer- and shorter-term lines are all in agreement about the direction of the trend. If all the moving average lines in the ribbon are moving upward, prices are increasing in all timeframes và the security is likely in an uptrend.
If the shorter-term lines cross above the longer-term lines, this signals a new uptrend; a downtrend is indicated when shorter-term moving average lines cross below the longer-term ones. Chartists can also look for price bars to lớn cross above or below the various moving average lines in the ribbon.

The ribbon's width - the distance between the moving average lines in the ribbon - can also provide information for traders:

When all moving average lines are running in parallel (the lines are evenly spaced over time), this indicates a strong trend.
If the ribbon is expanding (the moving average lines are getting farther apart over time), this could mark the over of the current trend.
If the ribbon is contracting (the moving average lines are getting closer together or even crossing), this can indicate the start of a new trend.

The responsiveness of the ribbon can be adjusted by changing the type of moving average (EMAs respond more quickly than equivalent SMAs), & by changing the number of periods in the moving averages (MAs with fewer periods will react more quickly than those with more periods).


A moving average ribbon allows you to see at a glance what's happening in both the long- và short-term by looking for trends và crossovers across a wide variety of look-back periods. In addition, ribbon width expansions & contractions can indicate trend strength and possible trend changes. As with all technical indicators, traders should use the Moving Average Ribbon overlay in conjunction with other indicators và analysis techniques.

Charting with Moving Average Ribbons

Moving Average Ribbons can be created on both SharpCharts & linhthach.vnACP charts.

Using with linhthach.vnACP

Chartists can build their own ribbon by adding several moving averages lớn their chart one at a time, but there is a quicker way in linhthach.vnACP: the Moving Average Ribbon overlay.

This overlay can be added from the Chart Settings panel for your linhthach.vnACP chart. Moving Average Ribbons can be overlaid on the security's price plot or on an indicator panel.

By default, the overlay uses 10 SMAs, spaced 5 periods apart, ranging between 20 & 65 periods. The type of moving average (Simple or Exponential), the number of periods in the shortest moving average, the increment (Step) of periods between each line, and the number of moving averages can all be adjusted to lớn meet your technical analysis needs.

The line colors default to rainbow order with the shortest moving average set to red, the second shortest set lớn orange, & so on, but these line colors can also be adjusted.

Using with SharpCharts

While the SharpCharts Workbench does not offer a built-in Moving Average Ribbon indicator, it is relatively easy to create your own ribbon on SharpCharts by adding multiple moving averages, each with a different number of periods & different color.

The example below shows the same ribbon as in the linhthach.vnACP example above. Click the liên kết below the chart to see how this ribbon was configured in SharpCharts.
