Golden Cross and Death Cross

The Golden Cross occurs when a fast moving average moves upwards past the slow moving average. There is no set definition of the ‘standard’ length for a golden cross. The most common and 50 and 100, or 50 and 200. This signifies the start of a bullish market.

The Death Cross is the opposite. It is when a fast moving average moves downwards, and crosses the slow moving average. This signifies a bearish market.
