What is 89-Moving Average of 89-MA Band Setup?
The MA (moving average) breakout appears on a chart when a stock's price crosses above its mid-term moving average 89 SMA (89 days simple moving Average-High). As long-term indicators carry more weight, the MA breakout indicates a bull market on the horizon and is reinforced by high trading volumes.
There are mainly three stages to the 89-MA band. The first stage requires that a downtrend eventually bottoms out as selling is depleted. In the second stage, the prices trade higher above 89-SMA (Low) moving average to trigger a breakout and confirmation of trend reversal. The last stage is the continuing uptrend for the follow through to higher prices by trading above 89-SMA (High).

As 89 is part of a Fibonacci serious, 89-MA band is popular, simple and easy to spot on charts for mid-term perspective. Moving averages can be powerful when understood correctly; however, they are the simplest and easiest tool for developing a trading setup. The MA breakout setup is believed to be one of the most reliable and popular among the traders community.
