The time frame or length you choose for a moving average, also called the “look back period”, can play a big role in how effective it is. An MA with a short time frame will react much quicker to price changes than an MA with a long look back period. The 20-day may be of analytical benefit to a shorter-term trader since it follows the price more closely, and therefore produces less “lag” than the longer-term moving average. Lag is the time it takes for a moving average to signal a potential reversal. Recall, as a general guideline, when the price is above a moving average the trend is considered up. So when the price drops below that moving average it signals a potential reversal based on that MA. A 20-day moving average will provide many more “reversal” signals than a 100-day moving average.
