It is impossible to use a single indicator to generate trading signals because the market conditions vary from time to time. There are times that the forex market moves like a thunder and there are times that the currency pairs move slower than a turtle. Due to the fact that most of the indicators depend on volatility, many trading systems fail.
Moving averages can help us to identify if the market is trending or moving inside a range by just examining their angle.
MA Angle should not be used as the only indicator to trade. You can use it as a separate tool to decide if the market is volatile enough to move in a direction. It will greatly reduce the number of false signals, unnecessary noise in your trading system.
