Moving Average Convergence-Divergence (MACD)

The moving average convergence-divergence (MACD) oscillator, developed by Gerald Appel, is built on exponentially smoothed moving aver ages. The MACD consists of two exponential moving averages that are plotted against the zero line. The zero line represents the times the values of the two moving averages are identical.

In addition to the signals generated by the averages' intersection with the zero line and by divergence, additional signals occur as the shorter average line intersects the longer average line. The buying signal is displayed by an upward crossover, and the selling signal by a downward crossover. (See Figure MACD1.)

I just wish to say one thing. Deleting whole thing isn't good idea even you feel doing it. I say that from position that blogs like yours documenting now 5 years journey are inspiration to starting forex traders. I remember that few years ago when I wasn't forex trading at all but was on demo that I found your blog. It was so interesting that I read through all posts about forex trading. You don't get anything with deleting about forex trading and some others may lose. Let it be win win situation even if you don't post anymore about forex trading

Analysis is very important in forex trading, although it is almost never easy to do and usually takes a lot of time. Trading Analysis makes decision making a lot easier and the outcome is usually satisfactory. When start forex trading, analysis is very important because you can’t rely only on the money management strategy to succeed. You can forecast the direction of the market basing on your technical and fundamental strategies to see their effectiveness.

I have to say that The forex (foreign currency exchange) market is the largest and most liquid financial market in the world. The forex market unlike stock markets is an over-the-counter market with no central exchange and clearing house where orders are matched.
