The Guppy Multiple Moving Average (GMMA) is a technical indicator designed to anticipate potential price breakouts in an asset.

The GMMA utilizes exponential moving averages (EMAs) to highlight discrepancies between price and value in a stock

Key Takeaways:

  • The GMMA identifies changing trends, breakouts, and trading opportunities.
  • It consists of a short-term group of moving averages (MAs) and a long-term group of MAs. When these groups cross, it indicates trend changes.

Limitations of the GMMA

The main limitation of the Guppy Multiple Moving Average (GMMA), and the exponential moving averages (EMAs) it is composed of, is that it is a lagging indicator.
EMAs reflect average prices from the past and do not predict the future.

Waiting for the averages to cross over can result in entry or exit signals that are too late, as prices may have already moved significantly.

What Does the GMMA Tell You?

The degree of separation between the short and long-term moving averages (MAs) can indicate trend strength.

Wide separation suggests a strong prevailing trend, while narrow separation suggests a weakening trend.

Crossovers of the short- and long-term MAs represent trend reversals.
