I was wondering if someone could help me with a formula for:

A stock which crossed and closed above the 21ema

Show 4, 8, and 21 ema

I am looking for stocks that have been either trading sideways or have had subtle to medium dips that I can use as a crossover trade

Any help would be much appreciated....

copy paste this into a filter screen, should be what you want

find stocks where close crossed above ema(21)
and where close is greater than ema(21)
and draw ema(4)
and draw ema(8)
and draw ema(21)

FYI, a stock which crosses above anything implies that it closes above it. Here is the filter made clickable with volume and price parameters:

Fetcher[close crossed above ema(21)
and average volume(65) above 500000
and price above 5
and draw ema(4)
and draw ema(8)
and draw ema(21)
]

Correct me if I'm wrong but you could technically have the high of the day above "anything" but the close to be below it, in which case it amounts to "nothing" IMHO.

Crosses above and Crossed above... so close.

Different platforms have different implementations.

Crosses usually deals with real time and crossed usually deals with the past.

I meant to say if the close crosses/crossed above the 21 ema that means it closed above it. That has always been my experience. The only way to tell for sure is to backcheck all your results or ask SF. As Niko is want to say..."Prolly" easier just to ask SF.
