JMA - EMA crossover


Here is a simple JMA trading strategy that cleverly uses indicator lag to its advantage. At the bottom of the chart we see a faster JMA crossing over and under a slower exponential moving average (EMA). The top of the chart shows SHORT trades when JMA crosses over EMA, and LONG trades when JMA goes under EMA. This is counter-intuitive because the normal tendancy is to want to trade WITH the direction of the faster moving average. But the parameter settings of JMA and EMA were set up so that most of the time the moving averages cross with enough delay so as to occur when the market has once again reversed, this time in the winning direction.

Losing trades occur when the market decides to trend instead of reverse. Hence, this strategy would require using a stoploss. This concept works best in markets that frequently reverse.
