Here are my words - show stocks whose closing price crossed above EMA(25) within the last 2 days. Have also tried "offset 2 days" but nothing works. All the results are giving me stocks whose closing price has been above EMA(25) for some time but I am looking for recent (2-3 day) crossing. Any suggestions other than holding my mouth right. By the way this action seems to catch some major moves. There are whipsaws occasionally but when I get ADX confirmation of the cross the whipsaws are minimized. It seems to work both ways, when the closing closes below the 25 day EMA it generally signals a major decline, one wants to be out. You can fool around with the 25 days, I've tried 30 but 25 seems to be a little more accurate.

I think this will give you the results you want:

Fetcher[close crossed above EMA(25) in the last 3 days]




You could add something about being below EMA(25) x days ago if you want to be a little more precise.

Of course gritting your teeth together while you run it helps also :)

Thanks to both of you !!! Neither filter seems to work exactly but both are ALOT closer to what I wanted than I was getting
