Fetcher[
/* NORMALIZE MACD */

set{macdval, INDPOSITION(MACD(12,26,9), 60) * 100 }

DRAW RSI(2)
DRAW macdval on plot rsi(2)
DRAW MACD(12,26,9)

close > 40
volume > 10000000
market is nasdaq

add column rsi(2)
add column macdval
add column macd(12,26,9)

sort column 6 descending

]



HTH.

TRO,
Thank you, you are the man. One thing I haven't figured out is why prophet.net's normalized indicators look different (different values?) than stockfetcher..I can't figure it out...

One of the reasons is because of the different data sources.

When I was first working with the WARM filter, BIDU was a new issue. In less than a week the Accumulation/Distribution values were different.

But since all the indicators at SF use the same data, they are in sync with each other even if they are out of sync with Prophet or other sites.

The other reason maybe be in how SF calculates the indposition. If it is a ONE pass calculation, then the values will be different than a TWO pass calculation.

In a one pass calculation you will have multiple highs and lows, in a two pass calculation, there will (usually) only be one high and one low. In the two pass calculation, on the first pass the high and low are determined and on pass two, each position is assigned a value based on it's relative position to the high and low. Understand?

HTH.

TRO, one more favor! Is there a way to create a weekly version of this filter? in other words comparing a normalized weekly rsi(2) with weekly macd(12,26,9). Thanks,

set{macdval2, weekly INDPOSITION(MACD(12,26,9), 60) * 100 }

Fetcher[
set{wmacdval2, INDPOSITION( weekly MACD(12,26,9), 60) * 100 }
add column wmacdval2
close above 40
volume above 10000000

draw weekly MACD(12,26,9)
draw wmacdval2

]



I think you need weekly macd but if it's working...

add column wmacdval2

Learned something new... it doesn't matter where you put WEEKLY in this case... you get the same plot!
