The 50-day is the most watched of all MAs. It and the 100- and 200-day moving averages are probably the most commonly found lines drawn on any trader’s charts. They are considered significant levels of support or resistance.

Through trial and error using various MAs, the 50 day Exponential Moving Average has shown me that there must be some magnetic power to it. Especially when the market is rallying. And maybe one of the best indicators of over-bought levels. A gauge for the too high, too fast. For DWCPF (S Fund) the magic number is somewhere around 40-45.

In an up-trending market, as prices climb, the 50-Day EMA climbs also. And with strong up-trends the space between price and the 50-Day will widen. However, price climbs to a certain height above the 50-day, and drops back down. Or starts zigzagging sideways until the 50-Day catches up.. There is magnetism to it. Some forces, I don’t know what, says, "Prices have climbed too high too fast, let’s ease off a little".

Now look at Oct until now. I thought Feb 5 would be the turning point, but the “The Powers That Be" said no. :?
