MACD-Histogram bridges the time gap between the price movement and MACD. In fact, MACD is also an indicator of an indicator. The simple moving average is a mathematical calculation that takes the average price (mean) for a given amount of time. "This method features a fast attack average and a slow decay average so that composite average rapidly ratchets behind price changes and holds the average value until the next ratchet occurs".
The base for this indicator is the security's price. Taking a step further, the MACD-Histogram, which was developed by Thomas Aspray in 1986, measures the distance between MACD and its signal line (the 9-day EMA of MACD). It is an indicator of an indicator. Because MACD uses moving averages and moving averages lag price, signal line crossovers can come late and affect the reward-to-risk ratio of a trade.
