Trading Lesson: Moving Averages and the direction of the trend (based on the article)
"Finding the direction of current market momentum is an important step for trend traders. Moving averages are a unique tool that help traders to just that on a variety of charts and time frames. A 200 period MVA (simple moving average) is often employed for this task, with traders looking to see if prices are currently above or below the average. If prices are trading above the 200 period MVA, the trend and market momentum may be interpreted as rising. As well if prices are below the average, this may be interpreted as a declining market."
"Often times, one line of reference may not be beneficial to a trader. To get a more complete look at momentum, traders may employ a series of MVA’s. Typical averages include the 20,50, and 200 period MVA’s. While the settings of the averages can be changed, traders should consider having a short, mid, and long term MVA for reference. In an uptrend, the shortest moving average should reside above the mid and long term lines. Alternatively in a downtrend, the short term average should be below both the mid and long term lines."
"Lastly, once traders are familiar with traditional averages, traders may expand their knowledge base to include other interpretations of moving averages. EMA’s (Exponential moving average) are similar to traditional MVA’s, however these lines are weighted. This means EMA’s are more sensitive to change in present market price than traditional MVA’s. Their sensitivity makes them a great tool for finding short term shifts in momentum on longer term charts."

What is the difference between CNY and CNH currencies? (based on the article)
"Prior to the establishment of the yuan offshore market, China's capital control rules did not allow renminbi (denoted CNY) to be traded outside of China. In-fact, it was a proposal by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority to allow renminbi trading in Hong Kong that opened the dialog of an offshore renminbi market."
"On July 19th, 2010, the People's Bank of China (PBOC) and the HKMA jointly announced that the renminbi would be deliverable in Hong Kong, thus creating the offshore renminbi (CNH) market where foreign individuals and corporations are allowed to buy, hold or sell CNH. These investors are restricted from participating in the onshore CNY market (aside from Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors)."
"These developments were part of China's path toward internationalization of the renminbi, and to make it an international trade currency of choice (latest achievement being renminbi's inclusion into the IMF's SDR)."
