Thanks Ed,
This is the latest filter which is lighting up SPY since May 17.
As I said, : on the same up cross takes place on the week of April 5.
I use ONLY weekly charts and weekly filters on SF and I have reliable signals usually.

set{ratio, ind(SPY,close)/ ind(IWM,close)}
set{ratiowkWma20, weekly cWma(ratio,20)}
draw ratiowkWma20

set{ratiowkWma8, weekly cWma(ratio,8)}
draw ratiowkWma8

ratiowkWMA8 above ratiowkWMA20

set{ratio,ind(SPY,weekly close) / ind(IWM,weekly close)}
set{ratioWma20,weekly cWma(ratio,20)}
draw ratioWma20
set{ratioWma8,weekly cWma(ratio,8)}
draw ratioWma8

ratioWMA8 crossed above ratioWMA20

by doing this I get a cross signal on SF on May 17 , but on a weekly chart the cross takes place on April 12.
Where is the error?( Basically I want to see a weekly WMA(8) crossing above weekly WMA(20) of the Pair Ratio

4 years later: did not pursue with this idea, in 2017.
- Q: is it possible to gather several Pairs under a watchlist in order to apply , to all of them , the same filters?
apply to watchlist( GLD/GDX, FXA/FXY, SPY/IWM,XLK/XLP), etc.

My humble opinion for avoiding Pigs: I used to have 2 big problems:
1- discipline of exiting at the "stops" ( « A long term trade is a Short term trade gone wrong»)
2- overtrading

I solved no.1!! ( Inspired by Chuck Hughes's style)
-A- only enter long in liquid-optionable- stocks in which 1 Mo EMA > 10 mo EMA and the 10 moEMA is trending up
B- instead of stock , buy an In the money call : the level of the call should be the stock stop level ( I use the lowest low of the last 3 months); use Chuck's 1% rule( do not pay > 1% extrinsic premium; so it takes a 1% move only to break even in the option); this guarantees you 'll be out when your hypothesis for your long position is no longer valid( in my case , a 3 month low), if you lack, like me, the discipline of getting out.
It also saves a lot of margin , simulating a stock with a ITM call+1%.
Ex: your stock is at 40; your stop is at 32; buy 32 call( expires more than 1 month out) : 1% of the stock price =0.4: ideally, do not pay > (40-32)+0.4= 8.4 premium .
* for No 2- I did not find a solution, but I try sticking to a 1-2 % max risk per trade /value of account + taking trades in less correlated markets. Maybe somebody else has an opinion in mastering the overtrading?

Also, Wisam, if you think you discovered America with this MACD divergence filter, without even taking a look at it, I can tell you right away: You're wrong.
It took me years and years to remove all the complicated lines and MA's and oscillators from my real time trading .
1-The best thing that happened to me was to remove the daily charts from trading and only use weeklies filtered with monthlies.
2- as filters, a simple 3 week horizontal breakout up or down ( weekly Donchian might help) and that's almost all of it. Simple is always better.
Actually, The BIG secret is the Size of the Bet ( money management), not the indicators.
