5 Trading Strategies Using the MACD
1 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Google+ 1 1 Flares× Are you an indicator trader? If yes, then you will enjoy reading about one of the most widely used trading tools – the moving average convergence divergence (MACD). Today, we will cover 5 trading strategies using the indicator and how you can implement these methodologies within your own trading systems. What is the MACD? The MACD calculation is a lagging indicator, used to follow trends. It consists of two exponential moving averages and a histogram as shown in the image below: The default MACD values are 12,26,9.
Detection of the divergences
The indicator displays divergences in the form of two matched lines: one on the price chart, the other — on the indicator chart. It allows to register four classes of divergences. For each of the divergence class there is a switch to indicate the necessity of its registration, as well as the color selection of the bull and the bear divergence lines: One of the six standard indicators included in the DivergenceViewer (RSI, MACD, Momentum, RVI, Stochastic, Standard Deviation) is used as an indicator that serves as data source for the lookup of the divergences with the price (in the indicator's terminology — the base indicator).

EURUSD 1 min Chart with Indicators Applied Tick Charts Charts based upon ticks make a new price bar (or candlestick, line, etc. ) every time a specific number of trades are completed.

Trading The MACD Divergence
Moving average convergence divergence (MACD), invented in 1979 by Gerald Appeal, is one of the most popular technical indicators in trading. The MACD is appreciated by traders the world over for its simplicity and flexibility because it can be used either as a trend or momentum indicator. Trading divergence is a popular way to use the MACD histogram (which we explain below), but unfortunately, the divergence trade is not very accurate as it fails more than it succeeds. To explore what may be a more logical method of trading the MACD divergence, we look at using the MACD histogram for both trade entry and trade exit signals (instead of only entry), and how currency traders are uniquely positioned to take advantage of such a strategy.
MACD (Moving Average Convergence/Divergence Oscillator) [ChartSchool]
Developed by Gerald Appel in the late seventies, the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence oscillator (MACD) is one of the simplest and most effective momentum indicators available. The MACD turns two trend-following indicators, moving averages, into a momentum oscillator by subtracting the longer moving average from the shorter moving average. As a result, the MACD offers the best of both worlds: trend following and momentum. The MACD fluctuates above and below the zero line as the moving averages converge, cross and diverge. Traders can look for signal line crossovers, centerline crossovers and divergences to generate signals.
