Lagging indicators will spot trends once they have been established, at the expense of delayed entry. The bright side is that there’s less chance of being wrong.
Some examples of lagging indicators are:
- Moving averages
If you put a 8 EMA (Exponential Moving Average) and a 50 EMA on your chart, you could enter bullish when the 8 EMA crosses above the 50 EMA. To see the long term trend, you could put a 200 EMA on your chart.
To trade using the macd, enter bullish when the histogram rises above the signal line and exit when the histogram falls below the signal line. Enter bearish when the histogram falls below the signal line and exit when the histogram rises abovethe signal line.
