On the PPO, one has a Signal line, and then another line. I don't know what to call the other line. I want to scan for the signal line crossing above or below the other line, but don't know what to call it. Have searched all the SF terminology.

Thank you both, but the first reply doesn't work correctly. When I ran that screen around 4:20 on Fri PM, the first two results were WFC and EWG. WFC signal line crossed to the upside about a month ago and crossed to the downside a couple of days ago. My PPO is set on (12,26,9) I don't know if that is the difference. EWG signal line crossed to the upside on 15 Sep. The second link does not discuss crossing of the two lines, it only discusses the signal line crossing 0.

"My PPO is set on (12,26,9)" ??????


-------->>>>>>>>>>>> Do you mean MACD(12,26,9)?????

papagatorga,

Please post your ACTUAL filter.

From StockFetcher... "The Percent Price Oscillator (PPO) is computed by taking the difference between two specified moving averages". Thus, a single line.

I don't see "another line". That is why I created a custom moving average.

Not sure how the two lines are created from what sparked your interest ... could be anything ....similar to the MA cross-overs?

For some reason, I cannot seem to copy and paste ny charts from StockCharts here. I am definitely talking about PPO. On my charts in StockCharts I have a red line, a black line, a center line and a histogram. As with all charts, after the Indicator identifyer, there are three numbers reflecting the moving averages and the time frame. Mine is like this PPO(12,26,9). I even tried to copy and paste the instructions for PPO in StockCharts, but they would not paste either. StockCharts has a free portion. Perhaps you can go there and look at a PPO indicator and see the 12,26,9.

1. The '9' is used as the ema of the difference [ema12 - ema26]
2. "I want to scan for the signal line crossing above or below the other line, but don't know what to call it. "

ADD one of the following lines to the filter to return the requested cross:

xxx crossed ABOVE cema(xxx,9)
xxx crossed BELOW cema(xxx,9)

Fetcher[
set{x, ema(12) - ema(26)}
set{xx, x / ema(26)}
set{xxx, xx * 100}
draw cema(xxx,9)
add column xxx
add column cema(xxx,9)
]

Thanks. The last one seems to be working.
