Hi,

Iam very new to trading so I may be wrong.

I tried this indicator and its amazing. I was observing the buy/sell recommendations for BTC/USD (XBT/USD BITMEX Exchange), for 15 min TF, the indicator showed a sell (red dot) and in the next candle, there a spike of $100.

So:

1) Is everything working fine? Or am I missing something?
2) DO I have to keep verifying abt the buy/sell on diff time frames before taking the trade?

Many thanks.

@wotzzup, the MACD doesn’t give perfect signals. Nothing does. At least, nothing public. Otherwise everyone would use it.

So there’s nothing wrong. Sometimes there’s a pump or dump that people don’t anticipate and, if you’re using MAs with no stoploss for buying and selling, you’ll get rekt.

@wotzzup, This indicator may not work well in crypto where pump and dump are very common
