I've been trying to create a filter that would show 3 MA's pinching (coming close to each other without crossing) and no luck.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thank you

@ Smpoll,

Here is graftonian's white space approach. Look for value of white space crossing 1.

low IQ version

and ema(10) >= ema(20)
and ema (5) <= ema (10)
Average Volume(30) > 800000

set{xx1, ma(200) - ma(100)}
set{xx2, ma(100) - ma(10)}

abs(xx1) between .01 and .20
abs(xx2) between .01 and .20

draw ma(200)
draw ma(100)
draw ma(10)

add column xx1
add column xx2
add column separator
add column ma(200)
add column ma(100)
add column ma(10)

Thanks for the responses!

I'm working with the 16,21,41 MA's, looking for a "pinch". I've tweaked the "low IQ" method which is up my alley I guess.

This is an example of a trade with NVDA I made yesterday @266 and took profits this a.m. @277. I'm looking for more of a "pinch" but not complaining. Also prefer a pennant pattern.

This is obviously way too simple but it points to the direction I'm trying to achieve. Thanks for the help.

and ema(16) >= ema(21)
and ema(16) >= ema(41)

Average Volume > 50000

Thanks Cheese, still working on letting winners run. Much better at cutting losses though, which is crucial.

set{x1,ma(16) / ma(21)}
set{x2,ma(21) / ma(41)}
count(x1 above 1,10) above 9
count(x2 above 1,10) above 9

x2 reached a new 20 day low
draw ma(16) draw ma(21) draw ma(41)
add column x2
sort column 5

Much better Mahkoh, thanks. I'll need to tweak this so that it can find setups at the point circled in the chart. The "pinch" looks promising when MA's are in an uptrend. Some of them came back that look like they have this potential.

Another example is ORLY but I can't figure out how to access the stocks that are currently in the circled formation? The move has obviously been missed.
