Moving Average Convergence / Divergence (MACD) AND Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

CCI indicator oscillates between an overbought and oversold condition and works best in a sideways market. The MACD fluctuates above and below the zero line as the moving averages converge, cross and diverge. Traders can look for signal line crossovers, centerline crossovers and divergences to generate signals.
