Moving Average Envelope

Modified on Mon, 08 May 2023 at 07:13 PM

Moving Average Envelope is the percentage value set above and below the moving average. In this case, each Envelope is set to a percentage above or below the moving average. This creates parallel bands which follow the price action. If the moving average is used as a base, the Moving Average Envelope can be used as a trend-following indicator. However, besides just following the trend, Envelope can also be used to determine overbought and oversold levels when the trend is not defined.
