We are continuing discussion about the indicators.
We have the following thread:
Now we are talking about MACD.
"Technical Analysis from A to Z":
a trend following momentum indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages of prices.
The MACD was developed by
Gerald Appel, publisher of Systems
The MACD is the difference between
a 26-day and 12-day exponential moving average.
A 9-day exponential moving average,
called the "signal" (or "trigger") line
is plotted on top of the MACD to show
buy/sell opportunities. (Appel specifies
exponential moving averages as percentages.
Thus, he refers to these three moving averages
as 7.5%, 15%, and 20% respectively.)[/CODE]
Appel, Gerald. The Moving Average Convergence-Divergence Method. Great Neck, NY: Signalert, 1979.
The MACD proves most effective
in wide-swinging trading markets.
There are three popular ways
to use the MACD: crossovers,
The basic MACD trading rule is
to sell when the MACD falls below its
signal line. Similarly, a buy signal occurs
when the MACD rises above its signal line.
It is also popular to buy/sell when
the MACD goes above/below zero.[/CODE]
The MACD is also useful as an
When the shorter moving average
pulls away dramatically from the
longer moving average (i.e., the MACD rises),
it is likely that the security price is
overextending and will soon return
to more realistic levels.
MACD overbought and oversold
conditions exist vary from security
A indication that an end to the current
trend may be near occurs when
the MACD diverges from the security.
A bearish divergence occurs when
the MACD is making new lows while
prices fail to reach new lows.
A bullish divergence occurs when
the MACD is making new highs
while prices fail to reach new highs.
Both of these divergences are most
significant when they occur
The MACD is calculated by
subtracting the value of a 26-day
exponential moving average from
a 12-day exponential moving average.
A 9-day dotted exponential
moving average of the MACD
(the "signal" line) is then
MACD with any MA
I modified MACD a little bit so you can choose mode sma, ema, smma, or lwma.
Where did you get MACD indicatator with two lines like the above chart ?
OSMA Indicator Problem
I found the OSMA color indicator but it is showing different results from MT4 OSMA.
Image and indicator attached.
Can someone fix this for me
