Introduction to the Visual MACD Indicator
The Visual MACD Indicator is a forex technical analysis tool based on Moving Average Convergence Divergence, but it is plotted directly on the main trading chart.
It is a short-term trend following indicator.
You should look for buy trades when the MACD wave is blue. Similarly, you should look for sell trades when the MACD wave is red.
We suggest to use it as a filter for opening and exiting transactions. Go ahead and add it to your best trading system.
It fits all kinds of timeframes and currency pairs.
The default indicator settings can be modified directly from the input tab. Feel free to experiment with the settings and parameters to fit your personal preferences.

How to set up the Visual MACD indicator in MT4?

The Visual MACD indicator is well worth adding to your trading collection but remember about having realistic expectations. Just like any other technical analysis tool, is not capable of providing accurate signals 100% of the time. Thus, it will provide false signals occasionally. Its performance will vary significantly depending on market conditions. Feel free to develop your own trading system based around it.
