As someone who has been where you are right now, you will save yourself years by ditching indicators like MACD and other oscillators. The reason is that you spend time studying the indicator rather than studying price action in your chosen market. The Macd is just a way of outsourcing your decision making.
The advantage of futures markets with thick volume (so NOT fx futures) is that you can see volume as well as price. And this combination drives market moves.
My advice would be to read up on supply and demand, who are the people you are trading against (there are 3 participants-the biggest being Other Timeframe traders OTF), and then read up on market structure, volume profile, and trading against trapped/beaten traders.
I know it sounds like a lot but to make it in trading you have to be able to understand how and why a market moves. The MACD does not explain that.
