This version of the cTrader Ultra-Fast Zero-Lag MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) indicator produces trend reversal signals much faster than the conventional formula for the MACD as it uses a Zero Lag Moving Averages instead. It applies an exponential moving average twice and subtracts that from the sum of two exponential moving averages.

MACD is a popular technical indicator that was developed by Gerald Appel in the 1970s. It is used to indicate changes in the momentum, direction and duration of an underlying asset’s price action. MACD focuses on the relationship between two moving averages. The first is called MACD line which it is calculated by subtracting the 26 periods EMA (exponential moving average), from the 12 periods EMA. The second line is known as the signal line, this is a 9 period EMA of the MACD line. Both the MACD line and the signal line are plotted over current price action, and the difference between them is presented in a histogram beneath the chart being monitored. MACD works best in trending markets as its main strength is alerting traders to subtle changes in the strength and direction of an asset’s trend. There are three main things MACD traders look out for when using this technical indicator.
