There is a lot of way, it depends of your goal. For example you can use use the slope of the MAs, use shifted MAs.

Can you explain to me what is the slope of the MAs? ,  I want to know if the last closed candle is in an Up or down trend.

check the price if is above or below the MA to determine the trend?

I Use 200 EMA to tell me the main trend..Most of the time that is where the price direction is heading.. for quick trend direction I use 20 ema, price above 20 ema= uptrend, below 20 ema= downtrend
