When I´m using the , I´m just searching for a divergence between Price and the MACD-histogram. I´m not interested in the MACD-signalline or the MACD-line in any way. As you can see, The omission of them leads to better visualisation. It´s much easier to spot a divergence. On the one hand because that way the histogram scales bigger, on the other hand becauce the lines can´t overdraw the histogram.
Rules Divergence: Price makes a lower low, oscillator makes higher low.
