Code

macd_div_both_boxes_smThe easy way to apply what you’ve learned MACD Divergence is on this page. Now with software support for a selection of the best of strategies tested by BackTesting Report.

Modern charting tools like TradeStation® and StockFinder® are great ways to see what’s going on in the market.   With all this power at our fingertips, sometimes the choices get to be too much and its hard to know what analysis technique to apply or where to look for trading signals on a crowded chart.

BackTesting Report offers software modules for popular charting tools to help you:

  • save time by scanning for signals like MACD Divergences
  • make it easy to see signals and visualize the strategies in action
  • gain confidence by forward-testing the strategies
  • customize strategies to suit your personal needs

Each strategy is chosen from research published in my book Truth About MACD: What Worked, What Didn’t Work, And How to Avoid Mistakes Even Experts Make (Beat The Crash) (Volume 2)which can tell you how it performed over a 14-year period with 7,147 stocks.   This information can help you understand the merits of each trading strategy and the markets themselves.  It can help you to better understand the potential for profit and loss in the market.

Although the software modules were tested on stocks,  they can be extended to any symbol for which you have data in StockFinder or TradeStation including stocks, ETFs, industry groups, indices, and more.  Likewise, although BackTesting Report uses end-of-day data, you can change the timescale to extend to weekly or intra-day data. The strategies come with parameter settings described in my book but its easy for you to change these to suit your personal needs.

Whether you use the backtested settings or customize your own, BackTesting Report cannot be responsible for the results of any trades you choose to take.  The purpose of this code (and the book itself) is to help you learn what you need to know to decide for yourself how you will trade.   They are NOT recommended as purely mechanical systems.

    Hi, like your youtube videos. I’m about 4 months into an intensive education process on stock trading. I am using Trade Navigator and wondered if you had plans to integrate your software with that platform?

    Also, and please excuse my ignorance, do you think that MACD is like looking out the rear window in making technical decisions? Again, please remember where I am in my education.

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John
    I didn’t have places for Trade Navigator but thanks for the suggestion.

    Yep, MACD, and most technical indicators are like steering via the rear-view mirror. The problem with the stock market is that we don’t really have a front window, partly because everything visible in front of us is already discounted in the price.

    History is not a perfect guide but I find it useful even in a limited sense.

    Good luck with your trading education.
    Jackie
