different pairs react to differences in different ways. There are pairs that usually do not observe the differences. Thus, these pairs are unsuitable for divergence trading.

For me, MACD. Divergence shows up regularly on any pair/indecis, and if you know how to identify it and combine it with supporting signals such as S&R, fibonacci, trend lines etc, divergence is an incredibly powerful signal, not just for entries, but for exits as well.

Here's one very simple 40 sec tf example from the Dow last week, one of many I could have used as an example.

I like the PZ Divergence indicator the best! It provides multiple options to identify divergence for you to select from: RSI, MACD, CCI, Williams %R, Momentum or Stochastic. Plus, alerts, pushes & email.

As a quick follow up to my post above, there will be many who say that it is easy to post a historical chart as everything becomes apparent after the event, which is true of course, so here is a before and after on the S&P from awhile back posted here on ff.

Once you get a feel for them, MACD diversion can become a lethal weapon in your trading arsenal.

{quote} I don't need to back anything up. You're the one with the big ego that has high-jacked this thread and posted a bunch of demo 1M charts, lol. I wrote that the MACD is an awful tool and how to use the RSI in a more effective manner than everyone else. You then challenged me to a duel, lol. I have been trading for over 15 years and trading Forex for over 12 years. Over 50,000 hours of chart time and over 100,000 trades. I made 326 trades last week, lol. I seriously do not need your help, especially from your ridiculous PA system you don't...
