**Summary of how MACD xauusd indicator is drawn**

MACD uses 2 EMAs + a smoothing factor (12, 26 Exponential Moving Averages and 9 smoothing periods)

MACD gold technical indicator only plots two lines - the **MACD fast line ** and the **MACD signal line**

**MACD Lines - MACD Fast Line and MACD Signal Lines XAUUSD Signals**

- The Fast Line is the difference between the 26 EMA and 12 EMA
- The Signal line is the 9 period moving average of the MACD fast line.

## Implementation of MACD XAUUSD Indicator

MACD xauusd indicator implements the MACD line as a continuous line while the signal line is implemented as a histogram. These two MACD LINES are then used to generate xauusd signals using the crossover trading strategy method.

There is also the MACD center-line which is also known as the zero mark and it is a neutral point between buyers and sellers trading the gold market.

Values above the center-mark are considered bullish xauusd signals while those below are bearish xauusd signals.

The MACD xauusd indicator being an oscillator indicator, oscillates above and below this center line.
