Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

MACD is actually the difference between two moving averages.

Do you need something like the Multi MA Price Channel V2 indicator?

Thanks for the help everyone, the MACD works perfectly. I adjusted the smoothing to 10000 and it will show the difference between the two ema's. I never really use that indicator before but it suits my purpose now.

you don't have to go to that extreme just to see diff between 2 EMAs, try this setting instead.
