I saw someone ask a question about an RSI indicator for the Macd. While both of these indicators are used for momentum, a convolution of the two functions could be used as a stronger indicator. After creating the indicator, I noticed that the Macd-RSI supports that the Macd is changing direction. This indicator will help traders avoid false Macd reversals.
The indicator works like this:
Once the Macd-Rsi has crossed below the overbought (70) zone, one can predict that the current Macd Avg is up for reversal, and will proceed to fall...Same goes for the underbought. If the Macd is approaching a reversal signal, but the Macd-Rsi has not crossed back to the neutral zone from an overbought or oversold position, the Macd reversal is more than likely false (picture 2).
(5 min) As you can see, the indicator does a fine job predicting if a reversal is near.
(5 min) reversal fake-out. The Macd seemed to be approaching a reversal trend. However, the Macd-Rsi did not indicate a reversal.
(1 min chart) The one min chart is a little less accurate which is expected from the Macd on a 1 min scale
