Golden Cross

Golden Cross

The golden cross occurs when a short-term moving average crosses over a major long-term moving average to the upside and is interpreted by analysts and traders as signaling a definitive upward turn in a market.

There are three stages to a golden cross:

  • A downtrend that eventually ends as selling is depleted
  • A second stage where the shorter moving average crosses up through the longer moving average
  • The continuing uptrend, hopefully leading to higher prices.

Golden Cross VS Death Cross

Technical analysis involves the use of statistical analysis to make trading decisions. Technical analysts use a ton of data, often in the form of charts, to analyze stocks and markets. 

  • A golden cross indicates a long-term bull market going forward.
  • A death cross signals a long-term bear market.¬†

Both refer to the solid confirmation of a long-term trend by the occurrence of a short-term moving average crossing over a major long-term moving average.

Death Cross

Conversely, a similar downside moving average crossover constitutes the death cross and is understood to signal a decisive downturn in a market.

The death cross occurs when the short term average trends down and crosses the long-term average, basically going in the opposite direction of the golden cross.

  • A golden cross suggests a long-term bull market going forward, while a death cross suggests a long-term bear market.
  • Either crossover is considered more significant when accompanied by high trading volume.
  • Once the crossover occurs, the long-term moving average is considered a major support level¬†(in the case of the golden cross) or resistance level¬†(in the instance of the death cross) for the market from that point forward.
  • Either cross may occur as a signal of a trend change, but they more frequently occur as a strong confirmation of a change in trend that has already taken place.

When it comes to wealth creation in equity market, investing and trading are the two genres of the field. However, investing and trading are very different approaches of wealth creation or generating profits in the financial market. Imagine, today, you and your friend bought equal amount of seeds to sow in your fields but you sold them to someone in a day because you could earn profit. And your friend sowed the seeds and let them grow for a few years till they gave new seeds. He sowed the new seeds and continued this for years and sold a lot more seeds eventually than were bought.
