Multi MA Trend Following Strategy Template

Trend following is one of the better known technical trading strategies. But, which trend should you follow? Today I am sharing with the community a trend following template script that includes a selection of over 20 different trends / regressions. Some of these are in the Pine library, and some have been custom coded and contributed over time by the beloved Pine Coder community.

How it works:
This template will plot any of the 20+ trends that you can select in the settings. The strategy component will buy if the trend line is moving up, and will sell if it moves down. If the line is green that indicates that the trend is higher than the prior bar. If the line is red that indicates that the trend is lower than the prior bar. This script is different from many moving average scripts in that it follows the trend itself and doesn't look for a cross of multiple trends.

How to use it:
When wanting to trend follow an instrument, you can use this template to help identify what approach you might want to take and/or which indicator you might want to use. You can also modify the strategy as you see fit and make use of the 20+ incorporated indicators. Incorporate your trade and risk management strategy, or use it as an indicator.

Disclaimer: Open source scripts I publish in the community are largely meant to spark ideas that can be used as building blocks for part of a more robust trade management strategy. Even though this example script might beat buy and hold over the back-test time-frame, I wouldn't advise using it as a stand-alone strategy without significant additions/modifications to the strategy and risk management functions.
