Welcome to this course. Here you’ll learn about a unique indicator; the Hull moving average.
Moving Averages are one of our most basic and popular trading indicators. They flatten out erratic price changes, and smoothly outline broader market movement. But they have a disadvantage; Time lag.
There’s a delay between the time a price changes, and the reaction time of the moving average. By the time a traditional moving average signals a new trend, it’s already several price-bars old. And you’ve missed out on some of the opportunity. Exit signals are delayed as well.
Alan Hull, an Australian mathematician and trader, devised a way to greatly reduce this lag time, while maintaining the smoothing effect.
By the end of this course you’ll understand the Hull moving average and know how it’s built.
More importantly, you’ll see back-testing results from 12 futures markets comparing it to the more popular exponential moving average.
As you’ll learn, the Hull moving average can provide a unique perspective to the market.
Please look through the course description, and we hope you’ll join us.
Who this course is for:
- Existing futures traders looking for a new trade idea.
I’ve been trading for over a decade. I’ve traded stocks, forex, and futures; both swing-trading and day-trading. My methods are technical analysis and price-action. Like most traders, it took some time, and losses, before I started to figure things out. But eventually, I got to the point where I could trade full time.
