AXA  (LTS:0HAR) 50-Day SMA Explanation

Simple Moving Average (SMA) is the arithmetic average of stock price over a period. The 20-Day SMA calculates the average price over 20 days. And the 50-Day SMA and 200-Day SMA calculates the average price over 50 days and 200 days separately. SMAs are often used to determine the price trend direction. A 200-Day SMA is usually a proxy for the long-term trend, while shorter periods indicate short-term trend.

SMA are commonly compared with stock price or different period SMAs to indicate a trading signal. Generally speaking, if the price goes above the SMA, or a short-term SMA crosses above a long-term SMA, an uptrend is expected, investors may want to go long or cover short. Conversely, if the price goes below the SMA, or the short-term SMA crosses below a long-term SMA, a downtrend is expected, investors may want to go short or exit long.

Two popular trading patterns that use SMA include the death cross and a golden cross. A death cross occurs when the 50-day SMA crosses below the 200-day SMA. This is considered a bearish signal, that further losses are in store. The golden cross is a bullish signal which occurs when a short-term SMA crosses above a long-term SMA.

AXA (LTS:0HAR) Business Description

25, Avenue Matignon, Paris, FRA, 75008
AXA's origins date back to Ancienne Mutuelle, which was one of the few insurers that remained after the creation of the French security system. With the threat of nationalization, a merger took place between three insurance groups The Drouot Group, AXA (still known as Mutuelles Unies in 1982), and Presence Group. Ten years later AXA acquired North American life insurer Equitable Holdings. This was a time of expansion as AXA also bought UAP, a large French insurer at that time. Yet, as markets crashed at the turn of the millennium, AXA decided to refocus its business and exited its stake in U.S. investment bank Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette. A few years later the firm expanded again with the acquisition of Swiss insurer Winterthur. About 5 years ago AXA began reshaping its portfolio again.
