EMA vs. MA Crossover for E-mini's


Hello all...in regards to the EMA vs MA crossover for DAYTRADING for eminis Indexes:
What number do you use for the EMA and MA and does it reflect the open, high, low or close number?...my Futures trading platform can be set to any setting...thanks for sharing your insights...IncreaseNow!!!
Hi IncreaseNow...welcome to the forum !

What time frame chart are you using ?
the problem with moving averages is that they are by default a lagging indicator and so a degree of subjectivity comes into the equation when trading with them. Rather than cross overs try experimenting with using the the lines more as support resisitance so try playing with 10 20 50 10 100 200 simple averages and 34 ema do not go too low on time frame for example take a clean bar chart and start at the hourly and enter the 34ema then add in the other ma and observe. then try experimenting with timeframes from 3 5 8 11 minutes in the shorter time frame then observe the 15 30 60 120 240 time frames.
