3rd Generation MA

Third Generation Moving Average is a Client Side VTL indicator. It is an advanced version of the standard moving average (MA), which implements a rather simple lag-reducing procedure based on the longer MA period. The method was first described by Dr. Mafred Durschner. Moving averages are supposed to smooth data and to remove noise and useless information. Multiple moving average variants are used widely, for example Simple Moving Average (SMA) or Exponentially Moving Average (EMA). One challenge is that moving averages introduce a lag, i.e. the smoothed curve follows the trend usually later. 3rd generation MA reduces the lag and follows price trends closely.

Shorting the Turkish Lire

Obviously, post coup and recent S&P downgrade, the Turkish lire will fall at least for the next few weeks.

So, taking a leaf out of Soros' book, could I short the lira?

I'm assuming there are controls against this sort of thing forbidding amateur investors from engaging in this sort of behaviour but I'm curious to hear about currency speculation.

Guppy Multiple MA - Short Term VertexFX Indicator

Guppy Multiple Moving Average – Short (GMMA Short) is Client Side VTL Indicator. It is a set of five shot term exponential moving averages of period 3, 7, 10, 12 and 15. GMMA Short is used to identify and trade the short term trend. Single moving average and price cross over strategies are associated with many choppy trades. GMMA short with five short term moving averages is able to eliminate such choppy cross over. When all the moving averages are moving upward, a short term uptrend is in place and in a down trend, all the six moving averages move downward. In trading ranges, the averages are placed close together, when the trend is strong, they depart from each other and slope in the direction of the trend. See the image attached.

When the indicator remains in the higher extreme levels, it means the market is trending upward with strength.

Used together, chartists can determine both the direction and strength of the trend.
