How do you put a "1" in a designated column if a certain condition is met, and how do you put a "0" in a designated column if a certain condition is not met?

Example: If a stock's fast MACD (12,26,9) is above its slow MACD, then put a "1" to a column (called MACD); otherwise it's a 0.

Or, if a stock's OBV is greater than 0, put a "1" in a column (called OBV); otherwise it's a 0.

Or, if a stock's close is above its 30-day EMA, put a "1" in that column (called Close); otherwise, it's a 0.

Finally, I need to calculate a total of these point columns (called Total), which in the above example if all conditions were positive, the total score would be 3. (Or it could be 0, 1, or 2).

I want to track 6-7 variables, so the Total would be a maximum of the number of variables.

Can anybody help me with this one? Thanks in advance.

set{test, count(MACD fast line(12,26,9) crossed above MACD slow line(12,26,9),1)}
and Average Volume(90) is above 50000
and close is between 5 and 250
add column test

The following should come close to what you're looking for:


set{test1, count(MACD fast line(12,26,9) crossed above MACD slow line(12,26,9),1)}
set{test2, count(OBV above OBV 1 day ago,1)}
set{test3, count(close above EMA(30),1)}
set{testsum1, test1 + test2}
set{testsum, testsum1 + test3}

and Average Volume(90) is above 50000
and close is between 5 and 250

add column testsum

glgene,

Ya gotta use the "count" !

See below :

------------------

Fetcher[/* glgene's "Total" filter */

/* MACD check */
set{MACD_check, count(MACD(12,26,9) Fast Line is above MACD(12,26,9) Slow Line, 1)}

/* OBV check */
set{OBV_check, count(OBV is greater than 0, 1)}

/* EMA(30) check */
set{EMA30_check, count(Close is above EMA(30), 1)}

/* IndicatorFetcher */
set{MACD1, MACD_check * 1}
set{OBV2, OBV_check * 1}
set{EMA3, EMA30_check * 1}

/* FetcherSummation */
set{Total12, MACD1 + OBV2}
set{Total123, Total12 + EMA3}

Market is NASDAQ 100

/* Column Information */
add column MACD1
add column OBV2 {OBV1}
add column EMA3 {EMA1}
add column Total123 {Total}

sort column 8 descending
]



--------------------

Is that pretty much what you had in mind ?


Regards,

alf44


PS. I used NASDAQ 100 as a Stock Universe. You can obviously use whatever you wish !

forgot to make it a hyperlink...

Fetcher[
set{test1, count(MACD fast line(12,26,9) crossed above MACD slow line(12,26,9),1)}
set{test2, count(OBV above OBV 1 day ago,1)}
set{test3, count(close above EMA(30),1)}
set{testsum1, test1 + test2}
set{testsum, testsum1 + test3}

and Average Volume(90) is above 50000

That's what I was looking for!! Thanks Alf and Niko. I assume I can use that on a Watchlist, too.
