Strategy 12 - 4 hours MACD

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Welcome to the MACD Forex Strategy in charts of 4 hours. This strategy aims to simplify the work of the trader as well as raising the likelihood in our trading. I have been on the market for almost ten years and now in the forex market for two years, and very soon I learned that Forex is not for the weak persons. One must have a definitive test and trade strategy and a good discipline to follow the strategy, and execute the plan exactly as stated. One must be accurate and precise.

I practiced for almost two years and I read everything what was coming to my hands, I bought books and courses, I attended five days in a seminar on the Web, And all did not help me, since they were not adjusting to my style of personality. More than two years of watching the charts with various indicators, moving averages, etc. I have begun to have an effect on market movement, especially for the EURUSD around certain moving averages. No was until late last year that I discovered a MACD environment where I can easily read their signals regularly on a 4 hour chart. I like the graph 4 hours by which I do not need to be stuck to the full-time screen. If you look at the picture below you will see that there are 14 signals for a period of five weeks. Within that period Fig.1 many signs were pretty good. There are times when some signals that do not produce positive results. I then had to work in a filter system to only let me take the best. I realized that the MACD when moving in a certain way, produces a 95% accuracy. We show later how to get high probability. In Fig 1 shows the signals and Fig 2 shows an entry that does enter the bar of 4 hour has closed and the opening of the next bar.

This was just to see and get a feel for the graphics. Let's start creating our graphics. Usted verá en adelante como realizar las diferentes señales del MACD, ya que en los ejemplos utilizados no los he marcado.

The MACD itself is not enough for the success of the strategy. Therefore, to understand the system as a whole, you need to go to the post 289 of 4335 and the study of 13 lessons.

Moving Averages:

First are the moving averages that we use

Exponential Moving Average (EMA) of 365 periods Simple Moving Average (SMA) of 200 periods Simple Moving Average (SMA) of 89 periods Exponential Moving Average (EMA) of 21 periods Exponential Moving Average (EMA) 8-period


EMA Fast 5 EMA Slow 13 MACD SMA 1

Horizontal lines:

Should be drawn in the window MACD, three sets of horizontal lines above and below zero:

1. Level +0.0015 2. Level +0.0030 3. Level +0.0045 4. Level -0.0015 5. Level -0.0030 6. Level -0.0045

Your graph should look like this: (Choose your own color and style)

4 Hour MACD Strategy

The MACD moves in certain patterns and so I recognized it can be very profitable the trade. Let me first show you the most important, because not all give a signal, only granting a high probability in the trade, through certain MACD patterns that serve as a filter. This is the filter.

The countertrend trade can be dangerous as it involves going against the trend. When it goes with countertrend determine the resistances

These patterns are very regular, especially A and D. As the MACD has moved beyond the 0.0045 level and may be due for a correction and/or reversal of the trend. B and C are the patterns of trend continue and follow the direction of the trend.

The red circles indicate input signal and makes the opening of the next bar

The head and shoulder are clear

Double ceiling and the double soil does not need any presentation, since they speaks in any period of time

When the MACD comes down towards the zero line and pulls back to just above the zero line, it is usually a continuing trend, and are a strong movement

The high curve and lower curve are safe. Just be careful when you are in the first zone of 0.0000 to 0.0015 above or below. I like the curves formed by more than 5 bars
