Developed by Alan Hull, the Hull Moving Average is a very fast trend indicator.

Moving averages are used to smooth price fluctuations and spot changes in the trend direction. In this case, the Hull moving average is much faster than an EMA or WMA. It gives more weight to recent price levels. Therefore, it will react very quickly to changes in the price direction.

The Hull moving average, as other similar indicators, generate signals by crossovers between a fast and slow moving average.

When the fast moving average crosses the slow one upwards, the price is bullish and a buy signal is generated. However, when the fast moving average crosses the slow one downwards, the bears are taking over and a sell signal is sent.
