I understand the basics of using moving averages in up and down markets and oscillators in ranging markets. My big problem is trying to determine when the market is changing from trend to ranging and vice versa. Sometimes I act too soon and get whipsawed. Other times I am too slow and give back 30% of my profits. I prefer swing trading. Can anyone please give me some ideas on the best way to identify market shifts in a timely manner. Thanks a lot.

@davesaint86, Regarding the filter posted on 1/31/22.

1. How many triggers are needed for a buy?
2. Do you sell 1/3 shares at pt1 and 1/3 at pt2 and final 1/3 at pt3 or do you ride the trend until the ts1.5% is hit?
3. Did you backtest this filter?
Thank you for posting this filter and for considering my questions.

@cheese and xarlor. Thank you both so much! That is exactly what I was looking for. Also, the "all above "

boxes will make back- testing a lot easier. I did not know that that was possible. You are both talented and give freely of your time to help me and so many others on this forum.

Fetcher[MACD fast line(12,26,9) is above MACD slow line(12,26,9)
show stocks where the stochastic %K (14,5,3) is above the stochastic %D (14,5,3)
price is above MA(20)

Please advise how I can add counts as follows:
1. number of days that MACD fast line is above MACD slow line
2. number of days that MACD fast line is below MACD slow line
3. number of days that stochastic %K is above %D
4. number of days that %K is below %D
5. number of days that closing price is above MA(20)
6. number of days that closing price is below MA(20)

I do not care about the count totals. I just want a red box to print on the chart for each day that each indicator is above or below criteria in items number 1-6.
If you click on a chart from the filter listed below then you can see the type of red boxes that I am referring to.
Fetcher[ apply to symlist(ABEV, AEG, GOL, drip,gush,dgaz,ugaz,dust,nugt,labd,labu,sqqq,tqqq,)
* 49 is number of consecutive days ema(4) above (+)/below(-) previous EMA(9) */
set{49b,days( ema(4) is above EMA(9) ,250)}
set{49a,days( ema(4) is below EMA(9) ,250)}
set{49, 49a - 49b} and add column 49 {49}
do not Draw 49
Set{cnt49,count( eMA(4) > eMA(9) ,1)}
draw cnt49
Set{cnt49b,count( eMA(4)< EMA(9) ,1)}
draw cnt49b

Thank you very much for your help in this matter.
Happy Holidays! Ron

This reminded me of a rule by TRO and Muddy Wallman: WAIT FOR GREEN.
Thanks again.
snappyfrog, cheese,VenturaTrader,redversa721, and SAFeTrade: Thank you all very much for your valuable input.

I understand that WAIT FOR GREEN means at open wait for the price to get and stay above previous day's close. Sometimes the price gaps up and then goes down before it reaches a 2% target.
One question:
Do you think it would be beneficial on gaps up to: A) wait for 20 cent gain, B) wait for 1/2% gain, C) wait to hold GREEN for 10 minutes, or D) wait for price to be above previous day's high before entering a trade?
I would appreciate any feedback . Thank you. Ron

Xarlor & Cheese, Thank you both for your help in fixing my code. I thought that it was a small error that I was overlooking. Thanks again, Ron

Cheese, Thank you very much for your fast reply and helpful code. That is exactly what I wanted.
I do have one other problem. I want to add another column labeled "diff" that subtracts the 2.0%belowopen column from the up2% column.
I added below code but it does not work.

set{diff, up2% - 2.0%belowopen}
add column diff

Any ideas?
