Does having the MACD indicator on our charts really help us or does it just act as a distraction to what is really happening with the price. Today on EURUSD was a classic example of looking at the indicators and not the price. twice I had chances to go long and turned them down because of MACD divergence. Does someone have any idea on their trading plan whether MACD is statistically a help or a hindrance ?
