A moving average can help cut down the amount of “noise” on a price chart. Look at the direction of the moving average to get a basic idea of which way the price is moving. Angled up and price is moving up (or was recently) overall, angled down and price is moving down overall, moving sideways and the price is likely in a range.

The time frame or length you choose for a moving average, also called the “look back period”, can play a big role in how effective it is. An MA with a short time frame will react much quicker to price changes than an MA with a long look back period. The 20-day may be of analytical benefit to a shorter-term trader since it follows the price more closely, and therefore produces less “lag” than the longer-term moving average. Lag is the time it takes for a moving average to signal a potential reversal. Recall, as a general guideline, when the price is above a moving average the trend is considered up. So when the price drops below that moving average it signals a potential reversal based on that MA. A 20-day moving average will provide many more “reversal” signals than a 100-day moving average.
