 Everything You Need to Know About Using MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence)

MACD (usually pronounced Mac-Dee) stands for Moving Average Convergence Divergence.

The MACD is the difference between the value of the 12 period EMA (exponential moving average) and the 26 period EMA of the asset price.

In short, the MACD indicator gives the short to medium term trend of the price action. A positive MACD value indicates upward price trend while a negative MACD value indicates a downward price trend.

There is also a histogram which measures the difference between the MACD line and the signal line. The histogram can help to assess the velocity of the upward or downward movement.
