Could someone draw the trend lines for SPX on a 1 hour chart using a 13 and 34 SMAs for the entire month of May 2012? I'm a bit confused around May 18-25 how the trend lines come out. When you draw one of the lines around that time, the MAs are already on the right side of the trendline and won't cross. So if someone could do it correctly I can see how it is correct for this situation if that makes any sense.

Thank you,

-Alli

you can only have 1 trendline in that space, so the next trendline starts after 2 ma cross again, this is where it gets tricky and u ll understand how to do this the more you use the system, also as Creekboy has said try different ma for your chart timeframe finding the ma that work best will help these area as well.

Try different ma you ll see this will help your issue

So should I have drawn the trendline the top arrow is pointing at? Can you show me how it would be done properly?

Only way to do it with these ma is to start trendline same location wait for 2 ma to cross and use the next highest high after the cross and draw it then draw next trendline the same....But IMO your ma times is what adding to your problem drawing the trendlines, if you stay with those ma times your going have problem areas like this
