Rules for a long entry

  1. Wait for the MACD line to cross the signal line upwards. 
  2. At the same time, a Parabolic SAR point appears at the bottom of the candle.
  3. Confirmation is when the price chart crosses the moving average upwards.

It is recommended to use a Stop Loss at the level of the nearest local minimum before receiving the signal.

Rules for a Take Profit

  1. The choice of Take Profit is possible based on the ratio 3:1, i.e., for one lost profit point, a deal should bring 3 points of profit.
  2. A trade can be closed before Take Profit is achieved if opposite signals from the MACD indicator and/or Parabolic SAR are received.

Important remarks

When searching for signals, it is important to pay attention to how the MACD lines are crossed. The sharper the crossing (the more substantial the "angle of attack"), the greater the chance of a successful signal. Typically, the angle of attack depends on how far the MACD lines deviate from each other before they cross.

The MACD+Parabolic indicators can be combined with other types of technical analysis. For example, with chart analysis and support/resistance levels. If the buy signal appears when the price tests support levels, the probability of a successful transaction increases. The same is true for the sell signal at resistance levels.
