Hi Steve,

I’m interested in your entry trigger of the MA15 deviation. Simple is good. To automate this would you use a set figure or a variable depending on something like a percentage of the average daily range of say the last 10 days? Do you use the cross of a level away from the MA or back towards it?

I’ve always had problems with these types of triggers, like bollinger bands and Keltner Channels where you can’t tell if price is going to return to the MA or bust out into a new trend. I guess waiting for the crossing candle to close and the high/low to be exceeded on the next candle could be a confirmation signal.

Any comments or thoughts?

Thanks FxGuy
