Shochastic is my favorite because I totally understand what it can do on different time frames and different values within that time frame, but I can see where MACD can do that as well.

Re: macd vs. stochastics

jamesj188 started this thread I find macd ok. I actually pay good attention to that histogram!
And yes, there are a lot of ways to look at it and get something out of it like egozi was explaining.
I dont find stochastic useful at all though.

By the way, entr is looking good, gona hit $9.5 level by end of this week, no problem. I even bought a few grand extra early morning today.

Thanks again for the comments )

btw, anyone use any studies on volume besides volume itself? like money flow index or something else???

When this coincides with a BULLISH divergence on the daily charts and the histogram is also showing bullishness then you have a nice potential trade on your hands.

Check out the weekly and daily charts on the $SPX (S&P 500) on the first few days on 9-2010 as an example of what I mean. Even look at the weekly and daily in mid 3-2009. You will see matching bullish divergemces. You will see that the daily is more important to follow early in the trend and as the trend matures the weekly also goes above the 0 line. That is a strong trend and one to ride until the weekly then says the trend is weakening. When the weekly MACD fastline is above 0 and rising ignore the daily MACD except to use as buying opportunity until it matches the weekly MACD fastline turning down to sginal end of the trend.

These are just my thoughts and how I use MACD and the histograms on mutiple time frames. So as always explore for yourself and take it with a grain of salt from some guy online who you have never met...

Good Luck.

I am referring to the MACD Histogram (in any time frame). When the Histogram is above 0 then by definition you have a MACD fastline signal cross. But of more importance in my opinion is if the MACD fastline is above the 0 line.

Re: macd vs. stochastics

I use the standard 12-26-9 MACD on a 2min chart of the YM. Amazing how price behaves dancing around a 9EMA with the MACD crosses to tell me when to get in. If I stick to buying/selling at the 9EMA, or waiting for price to retrace to the 9EMA, it works so well with MACD crosses.
I watch a 10Min chart with it's own MACD to tell me direction.

I had a macd tonight. I enjoyed it, but now I feel dirty.
