Rainbow 3D Moving Averages
Rainbow 3D Moving Averages were developed by Ivan Ballin (Ingot54) as a variation of the Multiple Moving Averages of Daryl Guppy. Exponential moving averages ranging from 2 weeks to 200 weeks are plotted on the price chart using the full color spectrum. The indicator is very useful in highlighting trend changes -- when your eyes have adjusted to the array of colors.
Signals are similar to Multiple Moving Averages:
The most important signals are taken from the spacing between the MAs in each group; not from crossovers.
- When moving averages within a group are parallel and close together, the group are largely in agreement;
- When the moving averages widen, this signals divergent views within the group;
- When moving averages converge, this is a sign that the group view is changing.
- Parallel long-term MAs signal long-term investor support and a strong trend; and
- Short-term MAs tend to bounce off the long-term MA group.
- Both groups of MAs converge and fluctuate more than usual.
- A change in price direction accompanied by expanding MAs in both groups.
- The short-term group cross over, diverge and then again converge; while the long-term group remain parallel.
