XAUUSD Technical Analysis and Generating XAUUSD Signals
This Oscillator is a momentum indicator that can be traded in the same way as the MACD indicator. There are 3 techniques that McClellan Oscillator can be used to generate xauusd signals.
Zero Center Line Crossover Signals:
Bullish Signals- When the oscillator crosses above zero center-line a buy xauusd signal is given.
Bearish Signals- When the oscillator crosses below zero center-line a sell xauusd signal is given.
Divergence XAUUSD Signals:
Looking for divergences between the McClellan Oscillator and gold price can prove to be very effective in identifying potential reversal and/or xauusd trend continuation points in gold price movement.
There are several types of divergences:
Classic Divergence (Regular Divergence)
- Bullish Divergence: Lower lows in gold price action and higher lows in the McClellan Oscillator.
- Bearish Divergence: Higher highs in gold price and lower highs in the McClellan Oscillator.
- Bullish Divergence: Higher lows in gold price action and lower lows in McClellan Oscillator.
- Bearish Divergence: Lower highs in gold price action and higher highs in McClellan Oscillator.
The McClellan Oscillator is also used to identify potential overbought and oversold levels in gold price action movements. The overbought and oversold conditions are generated when the oscillator moves to extreme levels on one side and starts to turn, however, in a strong trending market the oscillator will stay in the overbought and oversold levels for a long time. It is not recommended to trade overbought and oversold levels to generate gold trading signals. The best signal to use is the Center-line crossover signals to generate xauusd signals.
