I am having difficulty getting a screen that will find when the fast MACD line changes direction to turning up or turning down. Anyone know?

you could try fast line cross over slow line - that's default filter.
to measure the rate of change, you just do EMA of EMA, if it's positive it's turning up, if negative, down..

Would this help, Macd(4,8)fast line crossing above Macd(4,8)slow line previous 1 day. It helps me.

Of course fine tune what I just said, adding with extra lines like, and price is above 3, and macd(4,8) is below 0. That will filter the list down to a comfortable size to work with. Good luck.

To make it more interesting, instead of saying, and macd(4,8) is below 0, say something like, macd(4,8) is below .5. Also add in, and ma(200) is increasing previous 20 days. There you go. Filtered stocks that are in a momentum upward and ready for picking up.
