Need help with MACD Histogram switch from below 0 to above 0 as I need to capture the first day the Histogram is over 0 line. Current Code I tried works for some of the stocks but a lot of them aren't capturing the move.
MACD Histogram (3,10,5) 1 day ago below 0
MACD Histogram (3,10,5) above 0

Another code I tried
count(MACD Histogram (3,10,5) above 0, 2) equals 1
MACD Histogram (3,10,5) 1 day ago below 0

Your first two code lines:

MACD Histogram (3,10,5) 1 day ago below 0
MACD Histogram (3,10,5) above 0

seem to be working to me, can you provide an example of 1 or 2 of stocks that meet your criteria that those 2 lines are missing?

thanks,
Ed S.

For instance VET and UEC the MACD appears to have already been above 0 when I look at the chart on Barchart or elsewhere on the daily chart.

I looked at charts in VectorVest and the 3,10,5 MACD histograms match what SF is showing for VET, and UEC and is different from what Barchart charts are showing.

Curiously, when I look at SPY on all 3, SF has a different 3,10,5 MACD histogram and it appears SF has different open, high prices for some of the days than Barchart and VV do.

if you copy and paste your 2 lines of code below in the SF coding box and type "add column" in front of each line you can get the actual values SF is deriving

this was probably not much help,
Ed S.
