I have noticed that MACD histograms rise or fall to a "peak" and then subside...

Is there any way to code "macd histogram at it's peak"...

It doesn't seem to line up... with the 12/26/9 crossing lines when the histogram peaks...

Thanks!

draw macd(12,26,9) histogram
set{x, macd(12,26,1) - cema(macd(12,26,1),9)}
draw x line at 0

Hey Four
Can you post the same filter code using the MACD(3,10,16)

This tweaked better? Looking for stocks where the Histogram "peaked" yesterday...




draw MACD(12,26,9) histogram
set{x, macd(12,26,1) - cema(macd(12,26,1),9)}
draw x line at 0

add column average volume (30)
set{voldiff,volume minus average volume (30)}
set{volmult,voldiff/ average volume (30)}

add column volmult

Average Volume(30) > 100000
Price > $5

x has been increasing for the last 4 days
x > .40
x 4 days ago > 0
----------------------

and bearish



draw MACD(12,26,9) histogram
set{x, macd(12,26,1) - cema(macd(12,26,1),9)}
draw x line at 0

add column average volume (30)
set{voldiff,volume minus average volume (30)}
set{volmult,voldiff/ average volume (30)}

add column volmult

Average Volume(30) > 100000
Price > $5

Y has been decreasing for the last 4 days
x < .40
x 4 days ago < 0

set{Y, x 1 day ago }
add column Y

x > Y
show stocks where the Stochastic %K(10,5,3) < 18 1 day ago




It seems when the histogram peaks then it signals a pivot in price? ; still working on it
Not sure how tradable these "peaks" are...
Perhaps a "peak" with the stock at support...
