I was wondering if anyone knows how to calculate the ratio of price to the MA(50).
For instance if you had 10 stocks you were screening from a symlist
and wanted to quickly calculate how far above the MA(50) price is of each security
and sort by those ratios.
Can anyone help with this?
Thank you

Using PPO means no calculation has to be created in StockFetcher.
PPO creates the oscillator for you.

How about this. I added Draw ratio line at 1.00 which is where price and MA(50) are the same.
Submit

I use that Price and the EMA(50) ratio now in a trending filter where price is above EMA(50) and average day range(30) above 4.75 . I search the ratio from highest to lowest looking for up trending stocks on a pullback that are nothing lower that the EMA(13) or EMA(20)
and when the Macd (3,10,16) is about or has crossed above the 0 line
