I'm referring to the types not the lengths (EMA, SMA, WMA) etc... is one better than the other, what advantages do you get ? . what about the more fancier ones like Hull ?
I use 9 , 20 , and 50 ema.

Exponential is better for me as i want quicker entries even though the SMA is a little more confirmed. All depends what you want to use it for

I don't use any these days but when I did it was the 50 EMA

I think if there was one it'd be this. It is the perfect mix between realistic amount of data to go off and still relevant to price

I trade based on price action. However, at the beginning of my trading career, I was a fan of using indicators. Simple Moving Average was my most favorite. I found EMA worked better at minor time frames. However, SMA seemed to be more consistent at major time frames.

I usec to use a 50 and 15 then wait for that crossover for entries.
Now I just use price Action nothing against emas just prefer the cleaner charts
