Moving Average Convergence / Divergence (MACD)

The MACD is an extremely popular indicator used in technical analysis. It can be used to identify aspects of a security's overall trend. Most notably these aspects are momentum, as well as trend direction and duration. What makes the MACD so informative is that it is actually the combination of two different types of indicators. First, the MACD employs two Moving Averages of varying lengths (which are lagging indicators) to identify trend direction and duration. Then, it takes the difference in values between those two Moving Averages (MACD Line) and an EMA of those Moving Averages (Signal Line) and plots that difference between the two lines as a histogram which oscillates above and below a center Zero Line. The histogram is used as a good indication of a security's momentum.

Stoch and MACD are oversold or approaching oversold on all timeframes. That means we are at the bottom and a BIG reversal is imminent. We may see another small wave down as the hourly chart starts to turn around, but a reversal is very close. Gonna load up now as much as I can.

We have 3 examples of bullish divergence in MACD, CMF, and RFI. This voids the bearishness of the descending triangle. We have even had a brake out of the descending triangle with a somewhat modest increase in volume. Thankfully I took the gamble and assumed it would break out when it bounced off the horizontal support line. I will be setting a stop loss at 12.40 ...

Ethereurm short Descending triangle Reversal pattern.

Ethereum has low volume and isn't looking to bullish at the moment. A descending triangle reversal pattern has formed. I'm waiting longer for lower lows to buy back in. Also if you compare Fibonacci retracement the current retracement is only 0.382 there is more to go. Also the MACD is heading down again it never rose above the 0 line

BTM following a cyclical cup and handlepattern on a 4 day period

BTM has been following this uptrend pattern over the past two weeks. My next buy will be about .0005 (on~ 06/26) and hoping to sell .0007 a few days later (~06/29). Ichimoku cloud supports a general uptrend in BTMBTC so I think buying isn't overly risky - rather you want to buy at optimal entry points so focus on that so follow MACD and the supports I'll answer ...

We can see that price reached 50.00 level and after reversal it dropped to 45.00 level. RSI confirmed price reversal. Now price is not far from the resistance level and buying from this level won't be a right decision. We have to wait for correction movement to the support level and Moving Averages with periods 20 and 50. If the market drops to these levels, we'll ...

After a first test to 0.29 XRPEUR, all is green to test 0.30 in the coming days. MACD is in the good direction and Ichimoku are providing also positive informations. And Henki Ashi direction is Full green. I don't expect a return under 0.24 in the coming days. If it go to 0.30 or higer, it will be intersting to see if Ripple can create a new resistance around 0.30.
