What is offset and use of it?

moving average of set…

We have several situations when the price closes above or below MA, and we take a trade based on this and eventually, the trade turns against us as price continues to reverse the crossover and continue in the original direction. The offset can be used to have a confirmation that the price really has closed above or below the MA to enter/exit the trade. Although this is not a sure shot method to get the trade right, this is a convenience some traders would prefer to have more winning trades. Offset, actually Offsets the MA by the number you input, so either you can use this offsetting MA alone or in combination with a no offset MA and Offsetted MA for confirmation to trade.
