I think that you would get cleaner MA crosses by setting your slow MA to the open and your fast MA to the close.
Which looks more visually appealing?
I could use the 6/12 which is standard fair for most ma traders. smaller is 50% of the bigger.
In both cases using the open/close OR 50/50 the interaction with one another is much more herky jerky..
Also, we have got to take into account the open candle/cross. We don't want it to be too early.
I switched years ago to 8/12 after watching the old geezers 20/30 ma's for a while.
Also because it is the closest two ma's that I could find which mimicked the standard 12/26/9 MACD fast line cross of 0 line.
On my home pc I also have them shifted forward 1.
