The Bullish/Bearish Divergence (MACD)       18Jun2014

The easiest way to make money when trading in the financial markets is to buy when prices have become overly cheap, and to sell once prices have become overly expensive. 

Bullish/Bearish Divergence Scenarios

In the bullish divergence scenario, you will be looking for prices to be making new lows while at the same time, the MACD indicator is failing to make a new low. This, in essence, will signal that the bearish trend is reaching its ending point as there are not sufficient levels of momentum to carry the rally any further.

In my example: Capitamalls, a bullish divergence is seen, traders can enter into long positions with the help of candlestick knowledge, alternatively, you can use Fibonacci as your best entry and exit tools once you spot a MACD Divergence.

Effective Strategies to Bet Against the Market

One of the best and most effective trading strategies (historically speaking) has been for traders to look for opportunities to buy low and sell high and trading with MACD divergences can be one of the easiest methods for accomplishing this. With the help of our indicator TY-MAP, it gives the perfect finishing touch.
