MACD settings

I am looking for advice on how to set the MACD to make it more sensitive to trend changes. (other than standard 12/26/9). Anyone to share the experience would be much appreciated.

ThatManFromTexas' Universal Truths About MACD says ;

1. There are no magic numbers.

2. When Gerald Appel created the MACD he used percentages(15% and 7.5%)which equate to approximately periods(12,26).

The MACD is simply the fast ema (12) minus the slow ema(26) and the average is the ema(fast -slow,9).

You can change the numbers to anything you want.

The lower the numbers the choppier it will be giving you more head fakes.

The higher the numbers the smoother it will be creating more lag time.

Example:

If you set the numbers to say 1/13/8, you will simply be showing the relationship between the current price and the EMA(13) and the relationship between (Price-EMA(13)) and it's 8 period ema.

Hope that helps.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

stick with this setting, why? it works because many people are using it just like 20MA, 200MA. Your job is using it better than others. Remember the joke you don't have to out run a bear you just have to out run the next guy. Everybody know how to run all you have to do is running better.

Well there is this . . .

You might be interested in the ZeroLag Macd (not sure if you will need an elite status to get it).
I don't use it -- but the name sounds good.
