That explains it alright. The hull theoretically doesn't have any lag therefore will not make a good crossover.
Thanks for pointers on the variable names. At times, coming up with variable names requires more concentration than what I'm actually trying to do with 'em. :o) Thanks chetron

Here are a few Hull Moving Average filters for various periods. Due to a limitation in SF some calculations took place outside the filter. If you want to change the period do the following: Look at the first filter below (5 day period). There are 3 moving average numbers used in fast1, fast3, and fastavg. (3,5,3)
First number = ceil(period/2); 3 in the filter below
Second number = period; 5 in the filter below
Third number = ceil(sqrt(period)); 3 in the filter below
ceil is the next highest whole integer. For example: sqrt(5) = 2.24 Therefore, ceil(2.24) = 3

I can't seem draw a Hull Moving Average on my charts, and I couldn't seem to locate how to do this on any of the forum posts.
Neither one of these seem to work:
draw /* 5 Day Hull Moving Average */
draw HMA(5)
Thanks for any assistance.
Eric

Eric,
(1) This doesn't work because the use of /* */ indicates a comment. A comment is not 'seen' as code and is ignored. A comment is provided by a programmer to provide explanation.
(1) draw /* 5 Day Hull Moving Average */
    
(2) This doesn't work because StockFetcher does not, currently, offer 'HMA'. Perhaps they might add this indicator.
(2) draw HMA(5)
    
(3) tomm1111 has provided his way of creating HMA using StockFetcher (see posts in this discussion and modify for your needs).

Is there a way to review this screener for the Hull moving average? I get over 3000 results, which I truly doubt.

Dreyer, the only criteria filtering here are lines:
show stocks where the close is above 1
and volume is above 100000
and not otcbb
The rest of the filter sets what is calculated and displayed.
