Binary Options: Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD)
Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is a system of reading the trends in binary options. It reveals changes in the strength, direction, momentum, and duration of a trend in any stock’s price. A trend-following momentum indicator shows the relationship between two moving average prices. The MACD is calculated by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) from the 12-day EMA. A nine-day EMA of the MACD, called the “signal line”, is then plotted on top of the MACD, functioning as a trigger for buy and sell signals.
