Hello I am trying to make a filter that shows when the histogram turns from decreasing to increasing...
something like increasing over the past day but decreasing 2 days ago...

Thank you in advance

This will probably not be all that helpful in your trading, unless you are planning to enter and exit quickly. If so, you should be looking at intraday data instead.

However, try this:

Fetcher[
set{var1,2 day slope of MACD Histogram(12,26,9)}
set{var2,2 day slope of MACD Histogram(12,26,9) 2 days ago}
set{var3,var1-var2}

2 day Slope of MACD Histogram(12,26,9) is below 0
and 2 day slope of MACD Histogram(12,26,9) 2 days ago was above 0

add column var3
sort on column 5 ascending
]



Good luck. Kevin

Thanks for the response Kevin, I really appreciate it.

I'm looking to see when a negative histogram starts to turn more positive. (yet still below 0)
