In technical analysis, divergence is considered either positive or negative, both of which are signals of major shifts in the direction of the price.
Negative divergence happens when the price of the security makes a new high, but the indicator fails to do the same and instead closes lower than the previous high.
Divergences, Momentum And Rate Of Change - Divergences may signal a change in market direction, but traders must also identify the speed of that change.

 Divergence Information
In vector calculus, the divergence is an operator that measures a vector field's tendency to originate from or converge upon a given point.
For instance, for a vector field that denotes the velocity of air expanding as it is heated, the divergence of the velocity field would have a positive value because the air is expanding.
In physical terms, the divergence of a three dimensional vector field is the extent to which the vector field flow behaves like a source or a sink at a given point.

The loss of energy from a wavefront as a consequence of geometrical spreading, observable as a decrease in wave amplitude.
Divergence is a mathematical property of a vector field that is a local measure of its rate of spreading.

 Trading Alchemy Read About Divergence
Divergence occurs when the indicator (RSI, MACD, Stochastics or Tick) is giving you an indication as to direction that is different from the direction that price is moving.
With the Alchemy Divergence Indicators all the difficult and tedious measuring are done for you in a very visual and consistent manner.

 Human/chimpanzee divergence
In the case of human and chimpanzee, the divergence occurred sufficiently long ago that there are significant numbers of rearrangements in the chromosomes but not so long that all chromosomes have rearrangements.
This is highly significant and indicates that protein divergence is much greater in the rearranged chromosomes than in the co-linear chromosomes exactly as predicted.
The signature of this is the greater accumulation of protein modifications on genes on rearranged chromosomes.

Divergences between MACD and the MACD-Histogram are the main tool used to anticipate moving average crossovers.
A Positive Divergence in the MACD-Histogram indicates that the MACD is strengthening and could be on the verge of a Bullish Moving Average Crossover.
A Negative Divergence in the MACD-Histogram indicates that the MACD is weakening, and it foreshadows a Bearish Moving Average Crossover in the MACD.

 Divergence and convergence
Some people prefer diverging, as it means the potential of a wrong decision is never reached.
Using a repeated sequence of divergence and convergence is a great way of maintaining focus in many situations.

 Weather Elements: What Goes Up: Part 3 Convergence and Divergence
Divergence is the opposite situation to convergence, the moving away of elements from a common area.
In the lower atmosphere, surface divergence causes air to sink from above to replace that moving outward from the divergence zone, therefore surface divergence zones are the place to look for indications of downdrafts.
Upper-level divergence that can induce sustained updrafts from the surface is one sign that severe-weather forecasters look for as an indicator of cyclone formation or severe thunderstorm potential.
