I'm trying to develop a filter that will find the MACD zero line where it is near the bottom of the indicator box range and then combine it with tightening Bollinger Bands. Any help appreciated.

Something like ...

Fetcher[draw macd (12,26,9)
indposition(macd centerline) is between 0 and 0.2
price < 2.00
price > .50
Bollinger width(20) is between 0 and 0.15 and draw Bollinger(20)
]

the center, relative to the macd, is always 0. it never moves. the slow line moves, the fast line moves and the histogram, the difference of the fast and slow line, moves. what is your pleasure????????????????

set{var2,indposition(lower bollinger band,100)}

draw var2 on plot var1

low above lower bollinger band
price < 2.00
price > .50
var1 below .05
var2 below .05
rsi(2) below 5

Chet, I'm looking for help locating stocks where the "0" line or centerline is at the bottom of the MACD indicator. TIA for looking into this. The above filter doesn't quite capture this. Take IMGG for example, the centerline is at the bottom of the range. I'm trying to fetch stocks with the centerline in a low position in the MACD range and tightening bollinger bands. Then add strength indicators of choice.

Ack, sorry dinner bell was ringing. The MACD centerline is in a low low low position with positive numbers above. Running the filter you just made yield CBSO with the centerline at the top and negative numbers below. Looking for the exact opposite of this charts MACD indicator.

On the second filter VG and SGAS pretty much nail it!

DEIX - now that's a chart! And the run started with the centerline waaaay low and BB tight. Perfect example.

VG SGAS DEIX are perfect examples pre-run. The fast line, signal line, and centerline are all very low in the box with tight bollinger bands .. that's the set-up.
