udo@rettmer.com.au MACD Aspects u Moving u Average (always Exponential MA) u Convergence and u Divergence MACD measures the distance between two EMAs and graphs their relationship, as the two lines move closer together (“converge”) and further apart (“diverge”).

udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD Delta: Visual Proof

5
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Interpretation (a) Mathematical Any Mathematicians here? Any Physicists?

6
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Interpretation (a) Mathematical dP/dt = v first derivative of travelled distance over time is velocity dv/dt = a first derivative of velocity is acceleration

7
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Interpretation (b) Road-wise Read red “Delta” line as “Speed”

8
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Interpretation (b) Road-wise Read red “Delta” line as “Speed” at which the Price changes faster or slower than average Positive : drive forward – price rises above average; Negative: slow down/ reverse – price falls below average

11
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: the Accelerator Q: What comes first: Acceleration or Speed? (Hint: Ignore friction; just roll along in Neutral.)

12
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: the Accelerator Q: What comes first: Acceleration or Speed? A: Neutral means cruising at average speed. To change, someone must step on a pedal. ─► “Mr Market, the Chauffeur”

13
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Effects of “the Pedal”

14
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Divergence Conditions causing Divergence u Sustained Trend u Purposeful and Effective Use of Pedals u Sufficient to reverse effects of Inertia

15
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Signs of Success u “Action equals Reaction” To neutralise the effects of acceleration over time, we must apply the same amount of braking power over time. u “… and then some more” To reverse the trend, we must then apply more power in the new (opposite) direction.

16
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Signs of Success u Speed crossing zero, momentum used up u To start new trend, apply more power u How much?

17
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Enter Long – How long? u Momentum used up, Will it turn? u After enough initial Push, we’re cruising.

udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Example HVN

19
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Divergence u Divergence lines follow Trendline Rules – Falling = Resistance – Rising = Support – Comparable Turning Points Start: Determine a new trend in MACD (Delta or Histogram). If corresponding Price trend “diverges”, we have Divergence.

20
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Entry Rules u Establish Divergence Interval u Longest Histogram Bar sets Trigger (Draw auto-extending Horizontal trendline) u Enter on break of Trigger line – OR - u Wait for Delta Line to cross Zero (depending on duration of prior trend)

21
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Exit Rules u Days 1 to 4 after entry: Be aware of potential “false break”. u Stop-loss quickly u While Speed stays on side of trade: Stay u When Speed crosses Zero: Exit u Or apply any Exit Rule from your Plan.

22
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Example BSL

23
udo@rettmer.com.au © 2004 by Rettmer Trading Trust MACD: Rules Modified u Divergence lines follow Trendline Rules u Longest Histogram Bar sets Trigger u Invalidated when – Delta line crosses trendline extension – Price line ceases to diverge …but… Do Not Ignore the Volume!
