Death Cross Patterns 2 15 2017
A death cross is a crossover resulting from a security’s long-term moving average breaking above its short-term moving average or support level. It is so named due to the shape created when charting the activity and its association with a downward market trend. As long-term indicators carry more weight, this trend indicates a bear market on the horizon and is reinforced by high trading volumes. Additionally, the long-term moving average becomes the new resistance level in the rising market.
