(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 use the MACD to show me the general trend. We have an uptrend when the histogram is positiv and a downtrend when it is negativ. On the 15 min. Chart I wait for a crossover in direction of the trend.

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. Money-Management: For each trade I risk  LESS THAN ONE PERCENT.
