This week, by popular demand, David decided to cover the Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator, more commonly known as MACD. It’s one of the oscillators that are quite popular with traders and being a combination of several variables, it’s considered as a more precise tool than many others.
David takes us through the theory behind it and the way it’s calculated before showing us several textbook examples that illustrate it in close to perfect conditions. As usual he then goes on to an example on a real chart that frequently poses different challenges that traders need to understand and overcome in order to find the exact moment when they should open and close a trade.
Let us know in the comments if you liked the video and also if you have any questions about the MACD. Tell us what you want to see next.
