Approximately every 35 days I check to see where the current value of the VTI ETF is positioned with respect to the 190-Day Exponential Moving Average. The reason for using the 190-Day EMA is tied to faster movement as compared to the 200-Day Simple Moving Average which most investors follow. I want to be slightly ahead of the trend. As Platinum members can see, the current price is above all three EMAs used in this graph. Note how far the VTI is positioned above the 190-Day EMA. The same is true for the VTSMX index fund.
