This method employs the MACD indicator, which detects potential momentum shifts by examining signals.

The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is a technical indicator that assists traders in predicting possible fluctuations in an asset's momentum. This indicator is derived from the convergence and divergence of two exponential moving averages, usually a 12-period EMA and a 26-period EMA. Traders utilize MACD to determine if an asset is likely to undergo a bullish or bearish trend, as well as anticipate trend reversals. A MACD line crossing above the signal line signifies a purchase signal, while a crossover below the signal line implies a sell signal.
