Hi every 1
did you know how to make a filter for the MACD oscillator ?

If I'm not mistaken, ure question should have read:

Did you know that SF currently supports MACD oscillator? Type "MACD Fast Line(12,26) crossed above the MACD Slow Line(12,26)"

For more info on MACD and the like, consult the "Indicators & Measures" section [http://www.stockfetcher.com/stockdb/fetcher?p=forum&fid=1006&qrid=1143038225]

MACD Composite isn't currently supported by SF, but you can prolly code it ureself. Here's the MetaStock formula for MACD-C that I found on the net.

plot1:=Input("[1]MACD, [2]Histogram",1,2,1);
plot2:=Input("[1]MACD/Hist, [2]Normalized",
1,2,1);
pds:=Input("Signal/Histogram EMA periods",
2,260,21);

emaComp:=ema1-ema2;
signal:=Mov(emaComp,pds,E);
hist:=emaComp-signal;

MacdH:=If(plot1=1,emaComp,hist);

{ Normalized MACD/Histogram }
normMod:=Highest(MacdH)-Lowest(MacdH);
normMod:=If(normMod=0,.000001,normMod);
MacdHnorm:=
((MacdH-Lowest(MacdH))/normMod-.5)*200;

{ Choose standard/normalized }
MacdComp:=If(plot2=1,MacdH,MacdHnorm);
signal:=Mov(MacdComp,pds,E);

{ MACD/Hist average }
avg:=Cum(MacdComp)/Cum(IsDefined(MacdComp));

{ MACD/Hist auto boundaries }
pk:=Ref(MacdComp,-1)>MacdComp
AND Ref(MacdComp,-1)>Ref(MacdComp,-2)
AND Ref(MacdComp,-1)>avg;
pkVal:=ValueWhen(1,pk,Ref(MacdComp,-1));
tr:=Ref(MacdComp,-1)<MacdComp
AND Ref(MacdComp,-1)<Ref(MacdComp,-2)
AND Ref(MacdComp,-1)<avg;
trVal:=ValueWhen(1,tr,Ref(MacdComp,-1));
Obought:=Cum(pkVal)/Cum(IsDefined(pkVal));
Osold:=Cum(trVal)/Cum(IsDefined(trVal));

{ Plot in own window }
Obought; { Red }
avg; { Grey }
Osold; { Blue }
If(plot1=1,signal,avg); { Green }
MacdComp { Yellow }

i found the MACD composite too , but unfortunately I have little experience of SF .
I am still at the learning stage. However, i will try it and see if i can come up with macd composite filter using SF..
This will be a good exercise for me, I guess.
I might need your help, so do not go away.
