There are many indicators.

Is divergence of technical indicator creditable except for trend indicator?

Please submit your opinion.

I think it is partially meaningful and trend is everything.

Market Condition Evaluation based on standard indicators in Metatrader 5

newdigital, 2013.02.12 16:51

There are many indicators which can be used for it. I personally prefer MACD. First of all - because MACD is Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator. And because there are some good MACD divergence indicators but for MT4 sorry. If someone creates MACD divergence for MT5 and place it to CodeBase or to Market for low price - it will be very good (and it will be very popular indicator for MT5).

I used MACD divergence for real trading for many months with very good results.

This is the rules for MACD divergence (taken from 'Achelis - Technical Analysis from A to Z'):

Divergence line on Awesome Oscillator :

TIMisthebest, 2013.09.28 12:58

hi;

Divergence line on Awesome Oscillator is acceptable: were going through histogramm body OR not?, must have Opposite slope versus Price trend line  OR  must have Increase/Decrease in slope versus  Price trend line ?

i work on an indicator to determinate the Divergence on Awesome Oscillator. ( Regular Divergence & Hidden Divergence )

based on : https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/standardlibrary/expertclasses/csignal/signal_ao

Divergence — the first analyzed bottom of the indicator is shallower than the previous one, and the corresponding price valley is deeper than the previous one. In addition, the indicator must not rise above the zero level. ( below pic.)


i wrote this ( not complete yet , must add alarm , arrow, send mail, alert, ....). there are all of Divergence type.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

my qustion's are :

a) case 1 : "  it is not Important lines going across through the indicators/histogram body " . as abow picture.

a) case 2 : "  lines must be not going across through the indicators/histogram body " .

     in this case , so, i must delete that line are going across through the indicators/histogram body by compare with lines equation's & value of Awesome Oscillator.

    for example :

        

 or  

             

  or

     

or

    

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

b) case 1 : " must have Increase/Decrease in slope versus  Price trend line  " . as it is. by using:

               if(Ext_AO_Buffer[bar]<Ext_AO_Buffer[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]] && 
                 Low[bar]>Low[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]])
                {
                 DrawIndicatorTrendLine(bar,Time[bar],Time[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]],
                       Ext_AO_Buffer[bar],Ext_AO_Buffer[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]],Red,STYLE_SOLID);
                 DrawPriceTrendLine(bar,Time[bar],Time[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]],
                       High[bar],High[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]],Red,STYLE_SOLID);                 
                }
               if(Ext_AO_Buffer[bar]>Ext_AO_Buffer[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]] && 
                  Low[bar]<Low[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]])
                 {
                 DrawIndicatorTrendLine(bar,Time[bar],Time[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]],
                       Ext_AO_Buffer[bar],Ext_AO_Buffer[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]],Orange,STYLE_DOT);
                 DrawPriceTrendLine(bar,Time[bar],Time[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]],
                       High[bar],High[ALL_LastPeak_bar[l]],Orange,STYLE_DOT);                 
                }

b) case 2 : "  lines must have Opposite slope versus Price trend line " .

like:


for example:

    

or

   

in this case , so, i must just keep that line's  are have Opposite slope versus Price trend line compare with lines equation's  ( + or - vs. - or + ).

=====================================================================================================

can you please tell about :

   a) case 1 : "  it is not Important lines going across through the indicators/histogram body " .

   a) case 2 : "  lines must be not going across through the indicators/histogram body " .

   b) case 1 : " must have Increase/Decrease in slope versus  Price trend line  " .

   b) case 2 : "  lines must have Opposite slope versus Price trend line "

thank you.

RSI Hidden Bullish and Bearish Divergence Trading Setups

Hidden divergence is used as a possible sign for a trend continuation. Hidden divergence occurs when price retraces to retest a previous high or low.

Hidden RSI Bullish Divergence

Forms when price is making a higher low (HL), but the oscillator is showing a lower low (LL).

Hidden bullish divergence occurs when there is a retracement in an uptrend.


This setup confirms that a retracement move is complete. This divergence indicates underlying strength of an uptrend.

Hidden RSI Bearish Divergence

Forms when price is making a lower high (LH), but the oscillator is showing a higher high (HH).

Hidden bearish divergence occurs when there is a retracement in a downtrend.


This setup confirms that a retracement move is complete. This divergence indicates underlying strength of a downtrend.

MACD Hidden Bullish and Bearish Divergence

MACD Hidden divergence is used as a possible sign for a trend continuation. 

This setup occurs when price retraces to retest a previous high or low.

1. Hidden Bullish Divergence

2. Hidden Bearish Divergence

Hidden Bullish Divergence

Forms when price is making a higher low (HL), but the MACD oscillator is showing a lower low (LL). 

Hidden bullish divergence occurs when there is a retracement in an uptrend.


MACD bullish divergence

This divergence confirms that a retracement move is complete. This divergence indicates underlying strength of an uptrend.

Hidden Bearish Divergence

Forms when price is making a lower high (LH), but the MACD oscillator is showing a higher high (HH). 

Hidden bearish divergence occurs when there is a retracement in an uptrend.


MACD bearish divergence

This setup confirms that a retracement move is complete. This diverging indicates underlying strength of a downtrend.

NB: Hidden divergence is the best divergence to trade because it gives a signal that is in the same direction with the trend. It provides for the best possible entry and is more accurate than the classic type of diverging.

Hidden divergence is very interesting and creational.

I think it has priority over regular divergence.

Trend continuing is good chance to make money.

I agree with case1 "not going across through the indicators/histogram body"

and case2 "lines must have Opposite slope versus Price trend line"



I think divergence has such meaning.

Hidden diverence at oscillators informs us accelelation of trend.


In my opinion hidden divergence is very good trend indicator.
