There's a couple of ways to use this:

1. If you care about the exact value of the slope (like if you are sorting a list on this variable) -

"set{MACDslope, slope of weekly MACD histogram(2,3,1)}
add column MACDslope
MACD histogram(2,3,1) below 0" (this will be true for a reversal off a bottom)

then add a line like "sort on column 5 descending"

2. If you are looking for slope reversal -

use the above code, then add

"MACDslope above 0
MACDslope below 0 1 day ago"

Another one......

set{MACDslope, slope of weekly MACD(2,3,1)}
add column MACDslope
MACD(2,3,1) below 0
close above 4
MACDslope above .075

And better?

set{var1,slope of weekly MACD(2,3,1)}
add column var1 {MACDslope}
MACD(2,3,1) below 0
var1 reached new 20 day low within the last 3 days
var1 > var1 3 days ago

close above 4

I love the second 1 looks great, but does just as poorly in as any other in a down market.
