MACD Heiken Ashi Trading System – Profitable Trading Strategy Using MACD (12 26 9) and Heiken Ashi MA (20). The moving average convergence divergence calculation is a lagging indicator used to follow trends.
What I personally like about the MACD is the indicator has a built-in filter for trade signals. This filter is easy to apply to any chart.
If the MACD is below the zero line, do not open any long positions when the trigger line crosses above the MACD line.
Conversely, if the MACD is above the zer0 line, do not open any short positions when the trigger crosses below the MACD line.
