“HOW TO USE MACD IN YOUR TRADING: PEARLS, PITFALLS & A HIGH-YIELD BOND STRATEGY”

  • Main Program 8:30am – 10:15
  • SIGs begin at 10:30am
  • Joint meeting with AAII

Marvin Appel
President, Signalert Asset Management

The moving average convergence/divergence indicator (MACD) has remained a popular trading tool since Gerald Appel developed it nearly 40 years ago. This presentation will introduce the indicator and describe how you can use it as a trend-following indicator so you can jump on board with potentially strong market trends. Marvin Appel will also discuss using MACD to identify when the market is overextended and likely to change direction. In the second part of the talk, Appel will present a strategy for trading high-yield bond mutual funds designed to remain invested during the majority of the time that the market climate is favorable, while reducing exposure to the significant corrections that batter high-yield bonds from time to time.

YOU WILL LEARN

  • How to use the moving average convergence/divergence indicator (MACD) to identify market trends
  • How to use MACD to identify potential reversal points
  • How to trade high-yield bond mutual funds
