The Exponential Moving Average Ribbon study consists of 8 Exponential Moving Average plots having different lengths thus forming a "ribbon". The lenghts of those averages can be either in arithmetic or geometric progression relation: the increment/multiplier of the progression is defined by a user input.

Parallel long-term Ribbon lines signal a strong trend. Both groups of Ribbon lines converging and fluctuating more than usual is a sign of trend weakness. A change in price direction accompanied by expanding Ribbon lines in both groups is a sign of a trend start. During a short-term reversal, the short-term group crossover, diverge and then again converge, while the long-term group remain parallel.
