5 Screaming Fast Moving Average

This image shows an 8 period Hull MA on part of Friday’s 89 tick YM chart. Although it is a very fast setting the moving average is remarkably smooth hence it’s utility. Some permutations and combinations of contract period and type combined with various Hull MAs have proven exceptionally accurate.
I use a larger (5 Min.) time frame to filter out countertrend moves. Also, I do not try to call tops or bottoms but just to take a bite out of the middle.
The Hull MA is a function of the weighted moving average (WMA). The period of the WMA can be optimized for the market, timeframe, and trading frequency, etc. Of course, appropriate software that permits optimization is required
