(Chart done with FXCM)

The MACD line is nothing else than the difference between the 26 EMA and the 12 EMA. The Signal line is the 9 EMA of the MACD line. The Histogram shows the difference between the Signal line and the MACD line.

On the hourly chart I check after each hour the MACD. We have a signal when the MACD Line crossed the Signal Line. I open a market order in the direction of the signal and stay in the trade until I get a signal in the opposite direction.

Risk Management:
My stop loss is at the previous low in case of a buy and at the previous high in case of a sell.

For each trade I risk LESS THAN ONE PERCENT.

I exit the trade when I get a signal in the opposite direction.
