The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator is a centered oscillator that shows the difference between two moving averages, typically 12 and 26 days. These values, like any other parameter, can be altered to show the MACD over a different period of time.
The MACD system buys when the MACD goes above zero and sells when it goes below zero. So it’s always in the market. Very similar in function to the Dual Moving Average Trading System.
The MACD system uses the following parameters:
Short Moving Average Days
Number of days used to calculate the short moving average
Long Moving Average Days
Number of days used to calculate the long moving average
Average True Range Days
Number of days used to calculate the Average True Range
ATR Stop (fraction): Fraction of the ATR used for stops

CFTC-required risk disclosure for hypothetical results
Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program.
One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.
