Spent part of the afternoon googling for articles on the Guppy MMA's. Here are two interesting reads:

Alf,

Here is the formula (From MetaStock) for MMA Osc. It does seem to ressemble the MACD doesn't it? Just glancing at this I think it will require an advanced subscription to implement in SF.

((Mov(CLOSE,3,E)+Mov(CLOSE,5,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,8,E)+Mov(CLOSE,10,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,12,E)+Mov(CLOSE,15,E))-
(Mov(CLOSE,30,E)+Mov(CLOSE,35,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,40,E)+Mov(CLOSE,45,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,50,E)+Mov(CLOSE,60,E)))*10;

(Mov((Mov(CLOSE,3,E)+Mov(CLOSE,5,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,8,E)+Mov(CLOSE,10,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,12,E)+Mov(CLOSE,15,E))-
(Mov(CLOSE,30,E)+Mov(CLOSE,35,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,40,E)+Mov(CLOSE,45,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,50,E)+Mov(CLOSE,60,E)),13,E))*10;


dkatz,
Thank you, and I am glad you are getting use out the the Stockfetcher doc. I try and keep it up to date as much as possible.

I am not sure how one might apply MMA to short term trading. I think it is much more useful for monitoring trends.


maxreturn,

Thanks for the links they were interesting.

...hmmmm...

I'm not a Metastock guy...and although (after a somewhat brief look at the syntax) I can SEE that the Math behind this MMA Oscillator is effectively the DIFFERENCE between the SUMS of the 2 different groups of Moving Averages...which is (as I said earlier) a variation of a MACD...I'm REALLY at a loss as to how to implement it here at SF !

Perhaps some others can offer some help !

Perhaps "tomb"...or others from the SF "think tank" could offer BOTH the MMA Indicator...as well as the MMA Oscillator !

Anyone want to take a shot at this ?


Regards,

alf44

yepher -

Thank you for this post. Started playing around with EMA 15,60 crossovers and couldn't believe my own eyes! Then played with EMA 30,60 crossovers and it just got better! I have also been a huge fan of "Rainbow MA's" but this takes it to the next level. Again thank you sir! Also, I also reference your "commands" site @ yepher.com, and am truly grateful for your effort and hard work.

Rick Riggs.

Any of ya'll have the requisite SF knowledge to program a filter that will show stocks that the long term MMA and short term MMA groups are converging?

Trade Mike said this was the ROUGH formula @TeleChart
-------------------------------------------------------
"I made a screen that was a ROUGH approximation of the MMAs converging. This is it for TeleChart:

ABS( AVGC3 - AVGC45) <= 1 -- that's the absolute value of the average of the last 3 closes minus the 45 day average

Somehow I dreamed that up b/c TeleChart didn't let us use EMAs in formulas at the time (it does now so maybe I should update it). But it seems to work OK. For example it found DOV...

But it turned out that I actually liked looking at my other scans and just eyeballing the converging MMAs.

Good luck,

Mike
"------------------------------------------------

Any Ideas?

Here's the conversion of Guppy MMA from the above Metastock formula into SF paradigm:

####1 of 2####

((Mov(CLOSE,3,E)+Mov(CLOSE,5,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,8,E)+Mov(CLOSE,10,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,12,E)+Mov(CLOSE,15,E))-
(Mov(CLOSE,30,E)+Mov(CLOSE,35,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,40,E)+Mov(CLOSE,45,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,50,E)+Mov(CLOSE,60,E)))*10;
--------------------------------------
Fetcher[
set{3&5, EMA(3) + EMA(5)}
set{8&10, EMA(8) + EMA(10)}
set{12&15, EMA(12) + EMA(15)}
set{3&10, 3&5 + 8&10}
set{3&15, 3&10 + 12&15}

set{30&35, EMA(30) + EMA(35)}
set{40&45, EMA(40) + EMA(45)}
set{50&60, EMA(50) + EMA(60)}
set{30&45, 30&35 + 40&45}
set{30&60, 30&45 + 50&60}

set{3&60, 3&15 - 30&60}
set{3&60(10), 3&60 * 10}
]

####2 of 2####

(Mov((Mov(CLOSE,3,E)+Mov(CLOSE,5,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,8,E)+Mov(CLOSE,10,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,12,E)+Mov(CLOSE,15,E))-
(Mov(CLOSE,30,E)+Mov(CLOSE,35,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,40,E)+Mov(CLOSE,45,E)+
Mov(CLOSE,50,E)+Mov(CLOSE,60,E)),13,E))*10;
--------------------------------------
Fetcher[
set{3&5, EMA(3) + EMA(5)}
set{8&10, EMA(8) + EMA(10)}
set{12&15, EMA(12) + EMA(15)}
set{3&10, 3&5 + 8&10}
set{3&15, 3&10 + 12&15}

set{30&35, EMA(30) + EMA(35)}
set{40&45, EMA(40) + EMA(45)}
set{50&60, EMA(50) + EMA(60)}
set{30&45, 30&35 + 40&45}
set{30&60, 30&45 + 50&60}

set{3&60, 3&15 - 30&60}
set{3&60e13, CEMA(3&60)}
set{3&60e13(10), 3&60e13 * 10}
]


####Trade Mike's ROUGH approximation of the MMAs converging @TeleChart####

ABS( AVGC3 - AVGC45) <= 1
--------------------------------------
Fetcher[
ABS(MA(3) - MA(45)) <= 1
]

I was trying my own variation but it won't work... probably because I'm trying to divide by 'close price' and it's not working

((ABS(EMA(3) - EMA(45))/close) <= .03

That filter doesn't work even if I type in 1 there... i'm trying to make it look for a percentage and not just a hard number... how do I get close to work?

Fetcher[
/* ((ABS(EMA(3) - EMA(45))/close) <= .03 filter */

set{e1, EMA(3) - EMA(45) }
set{e2, e1 / close }
set{test, ABS( e2) }
add column test

test < .03001
]
