MACD is the difference between 26-day and 12-day exponential moving averages. A 9-day exponential moving average, called the ‘signal line’, is plotted on top of the MACD to show ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ opportunities.
A ‘buy’ signal occurs when the MACD rises above its signal line and vice-versa. However, the MACD indicator alone may not be sufficient to take an investment or trading call.
Traders should make use of other indicators such as Fibonacci series, RSI, candlestick patterns, Bollinger Bands and stochastic to confirm any trend.
It is advisable to consult a financial expert before taking any buy or sell call on a stock based on chart reading.
