The famous Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) Strategy is modified to be compatible with PineConnector to enable trading automation. We added a 20-period Exponential Moving Average (EMA20) to the trend-following strategy to filter out counter-trend positions. The MACD strategy can be used for forex trading, stock trading, futures trading, crypto trading and trading of other instruments – also, ideal if you are day trading or swing trading.
Nevertheless, we recommend that paper trading should be done first, before running on your live trading accounts.
After setting up this MACD crossover pine script,
- an alert will automatically trigger when conditions are met (as per the blue PineConnector arrows)
- the PineConnector EA will process the alert message
- the appropriate order or action will be executed automatically on your MT4/5 terminal
