The MACD indicator was created in the late seventies by Gerald Appel, the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence, or MACD, is a combination of a trend and momentum indicator.

It compounds two lines, the MACD and signal lines. Both lines oscillate around the zero line, which is a key component of this indicator.

The zero line separates the bullish and bearish sentiment. When the MACD is in positive territory, the price is bullish. And when it is in the negative, the bears are leading the market.
