Multi Time Frame Moving Average Crossing Strategy


This strategy seeks to optimise a well-know strategy based on a moving average crossing strategy, MA9 with MA50. Buy and sell signals are calculated on different time frames to improve the results of the strategy.

First Condition, The Buy-Signal

The rule buys the coin that meets the following condition.

  • MA9 crossing MA50. This is a common indicator that a new uptrend is forming. The strategy is based on a 15 minutes time frame to spot the ideal entry-point.
  • RSI lower than 40. Identifying coins that are oversold on a larger time frame could help spot those that have more upside potential.
  • Market Cap above $10 million. Avoiding coins with a low market cap helps to avoid illiquid coins, whose thin order books may lead to inconvenient executions.


Second Condition, The Sell-Signal


The strategy present two options for selling the coin bought, in profit or alternatively in loss.

  • Take Profit. Again, the rule will sell the coin when the MA9 crosses below the MA50. Using a slightly larger time frame for the calculation of the indicator for the sell signal allows potentially to ride longer the uptrend. In this case, the strategy uses a 1-hour time frame for selling versus the 15 minutes for buying.
  • Stop-loss. The percentage of the stop loss is arbitrary. That depends on the volatility of the market and the maximum loss that the trader would tolerate.
