The Golden Cross ratio called Cross SMA 50/200 in the screener is calculated as the 50 day simple moving average / 200 day simple moving average.
SMA stands for Simple Moving Average.
How to interpret the Golden Cross
If the Cross SMA 50/200 value is > 1 the 50 day moving average is above the 200 day moving average, this is a positive share price momentum indicator.This means the share price may continue to move higher.
If the value is < 1 it means the 50 day moving average is below the 200 day moving average, and this is an indicator that the share price may go lower.
