I want a filter that will show a turn in the MACD slow line(5,20) from up sloping to down sloping or from down sloping to up sloping over a given time period (10, 20, 30 days) etc.

For a turn from down sloping to an up sloping line I've come up with two possibilities:

and the MACD slow line(5,20) is above .01
and the MACD slow line(5,20) 20 days ago is below .-01

or

and the 3 day slope of the MACD slow line(5,20) is above .01
and the 3 day slope of the MACD slow line(5,20) 20 days ago is below .-01

For a turn from up sloping to down sloping:

and the MACD slow line(5,20) is below .01
and the MACD slow line(5,20) 20 days ago is above .-01

or

and the 3 day slope of the MACD slow line(5,20) is below .01
and the 3 day slope of the MACD slow line(5,20) 20 days ago is above .-01

These seem to work most of the time but I sometimes get bad results. I hope I have all the above and below and .01 and .-01 etc. in right places in the formulas.

If anyone has any insight to what I have already come up with or a different approach, it would be appreciated.

look at the stock charts from the results of the following filter and maybe it will help you determine why some of the results are not what you expect.

do not draw macd(5,20)

It is fairly easy, just remember you want to control the slope, not the line, ie:
slope of MACD crosses below 0, or slope of MACD approaching 0 from below (or above)
