MACD 5 bars histogram

The MACD 5 bars histogram is an excellent swing trading strategy for beginners. The beauty of this strategy is that it does not require you to monitor the market for a long time. It also signals you well in advance as to when the entry of a trade is about to take place.
When prices rise, the histogram bar becomes longer as the speed of theprice movement accelerates; the bar contracts as price movement decelerates. The same principle applies when prices are falling, but the histogram bars form at the bottom.

trade on the fi fth bar. No prizes for guessing why the name of this strategy is called the fi fth element!
