**The EMA**

**The strategy consists of a set of quick arithmetic averages with default settings but for different periods as follows:**

- It starts with the 21-day EMA 21 high in red.
- Then six-day EMA 6 in dark blue.
- Then the following averages are in light green

After adjusting the quick arithmetic averages with the above settings, the graph appears as a zipper moving with the price, as shown in the picture attached above, and the EMA 21 and EMA 6 arithmetic are shown in red and blue in the two hues of the cloud.

The second indicator in the strategy is RSI, which is one of the most commonly used technical indicators in technical analysis.

**MACD**

MACD is the third and last indicator used in Day Trading, and the indicator settings are different from the index's default settings.
**MACD settings**

The RSI is above the 60 level.

In the clear example in the attached picture above, we note the closing of the candle below the arithmetic averages. We also see the clarity of the blue arithmetic mean below the other averages. The RSI is moving below the 50 level, and in the MACD we find that the other fell below the middle line, In decline after the sell signals are completed.

In the following example we observe the completion of the classic form of head and shoulders complex with the completion of the terms of purchase of the trading strategy, from which the price has risen.The data were as follows: The breach of the neckline of the complex head and shoulders pattern came after the intersection of the arithmetic averages. We saw a white candlestick closed above the range of the arithmetic averages. We also notice the clarity of the blue medium and its presence above the other averages.

Looking at the MACD index, we see the rise of the index above the zero level, and the RSI is moving above the 50 level. After the completion of the conditions and the neckline breach of the head and shoulders pattern which was a strong confirmation of the entry signals, the price started to rise as shown on the chart The attached photo.
