    Moving Average is the indicator that can be applied for analysis with trending zone. This indicator basically smoothen the trend with the average price value previous 21 days. The trend will be positive as long as the current price is above the average and negative when it goes below the average.This indicator does not help during the non trending period.

    A moving average is an indicator that calculates the average price of a security over a specified number of periods.  If a stock/security is exceptionally volatile, then a moving average will help to smooth the data. A moving average filters out random noise and offers a smoother perspective of the price action.By applying a 21-days simple moving average to the price action, random fluctuations are smoothed to make it easier to identify a trend.
