But it should be noted that this forex strategy testing showed that only works well in the direction of buy, and sell to the side is much worse, so the price of the slower moving average is to take the low spark and only on the basis of this largely deals are obtained at buy. For sell transactions is very small, and then, basically, if the price goes sharply to the side sell.
