Moving Average Convergence/Divergence Gold Trading Analysis and MACD Gold Trading Signals

Developed by Gerald Appel,


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence is one of the simplest, reliable, and most commonly used indicators.


It is a momentum oscillator and also a trend-following indicator.


Construction

The construction of this indicator calculates the difference between two moving averages and then plots that as the "Fast" line; the a second "Signal" line is then calculated from the resulting "Fast" line and then drawn on the same panel window as the "Fast" line.


  • "Fast" line - Blue Line

  • "Signal" line– Red Line


The "standard" MACD values for the "Fast" line is a 12-period exponential moving average and a 26-period exponential moving average and a 9-period exponential moving applied to the fast line, this plots the "Signal" line.


  • Fast line= difference between 12 and 26 exponential moving averages

  • Signal line= moving average of this difference of 9-periods

XAUUSD Trading Analysis and Generating XAUUSD Trading Signals

The MACD is commonly used as a trend-following indicator and works most effectively when analyzing trending market movements. The three common methods of using MACD to generate signals are:


Crossovers Signals:

Fast line/Signal line Crossover:


  • A buy gold signal is generated when the Fast line crosses above the Signal line

  • A sell gold signal is generated when the Fast line crosses below the Signal line.

However, in a strong trending market this gold signal gives a lot of whipsaws, the best crossover to use would thus be the Zero Line Crossover Signal that is less prone to whipsaws.


Zero Line Crossover Signals:


  • When the Fast line crosses above zero center line a buy gold signal is generated.

  • when the Fast line crosses below zero center line a sell gold signal is generated.

Divergence Gold Trading:

Looking for divergences between the MACD and xauusd price can prove to be very effective in identifying potential reversal and/or gold trend continuation points in xauusd price movement. There two types of divergences:


  1. Classic Divergence Signals

  2. Hidden Divergence Signals


Overbought/Oversold Conditions:

MACD is also used to identify potential overbought/oversold conditions in xauusd price action movements.

These levels are generated if the shorter MACD Lines separate dramatically from the median, this is an indication that xauusd price action is over-extending & it will soon return to more realistic levels.


MACD and Moving Average Crossover System

This indicator can be combined with others to form a xauusd trading system. A good combination with the Moving Average crossover system. A trading signal is generated when both give a signal in the same direction.
