Hello all!

I became a member of stockfetcher solely to create a screen for my system. So first, the system:

I want to wait til the 5-day EMA crosses above the 13 day EMA, and the 13 day EMA crosses above the 62 day EMA. This should confirm a trend upwards. Then once a trend is verified, I want to wait until the price falls to the 62 day EMA, and I want to enter in on this pull back.

Now the problem: I'm having some difficulty writing up a screen for this. Here's what I have so far, keep in mind that I'm new. Any help would be appreciated!

show stocks where the days(EMA(5) crossed above EMA(13),60) is above 20
and days(EMA(13) crossed above EMA(62),60) is above 15
and close is approaching EMA(62) from above

chetron thank you for your quick response.

However, these dont seem to be the stocks I want to be screening for. A good example would be the charts for GLD and HMY.

Only problem is, those charts I linked to dont have the 5/13/62 ema's, if I change them I can't link to them. But if you display the 5/13/62 you can see that HMY was in a pretty long uptrend, where the 5 crossed above the 13, and the 13 crossed above the 62. Then within the last week the price dropped to the 62 EMA. That's when I want to enter.

Again, on GLD, on 12/17/2008 the 5 and 13 EMA both crossed the 62 EMA. then on 1/12/2009 the price dropped back down to the 62 day EMA. Thats when I want to enter. Additionally it dropped to the 62 day ema on 3/10/2009 and 3/18/2009 as well. Those days I would consider adding to my position.

interesting.

That filter returned YHOO which is almost a perfect fit. But MO and V arent so much. MO is trending upwards, but has yet to retreat to the 62 EMA. V fulfills the moving average cross over requirements, but its not trending and is just choppy.

Is there a way to adjust the previous filter so that the 5 and 13 day EMA's stayed above the 62 day EMA for at least a certain amount of time? This would ensure stronger trends upwards.

If you could explain the code line by line and help me understand it, perhaps I could make adjustments as well. Thanks a ton!

very interesting, and already very useful. I've already created a watch list for tomorrow. Any ideas on how to guarantee that the price is trending upwards from the 5/13 cross, and the 13/62 cross, rather than just staying above? This would eliminate stocks that fulfill the requirements but are just channeling above the 62 EMA.
