The MACD is an indicator used in technical analysis, and Day Trading to recognise trends in the price of a stock, and is in fact usable both over long-term and short-term trading. The indicator is a calculation that shows a difference between the EMA calculations of fast and slow differences (commonly the 12-day and 26-day EMA).

a Signal line is then calculated as a 9-day EMA and a histogram is usally represented against the zero-line to show the difference between the two lines, and this thus makes the MACD very similar to the TSI in calculations, but has the added benefit of the MACD histogram calculation.
