When MACD Fast Line crosses over the Slow line , sometimes the filter produces many flatliners that have both lines crossing almost in the horizontal postion.

Anyone out there can suggest how I can look for a MACD crossover , Fast Line over slow line but the slope of the fast line is upwards and pointing in the 1 o'clock or 2 o' clock position, with the angular separation between the fast and slow line to be as large as possible (above 30 degrees).

I believe these will produce stocks that are the strongest movers.

If you think of a clock as a degree wheel, then 1:30 would be 45 degrees from center, which is a slope of 1. So for the 1 o'clock position, the slope would be a little more than 1, and a little less for 2 o'clock. So I would word the filter to state the slope of the MACD fast line is above 0.8, or whatever you like. As for the separation between MACD fast and slow lines, I would try to use a query for MACD histogram - maybe MACD histogram reached a new X day high.

Hope that helps a little...

I do a similar thing with stohastics. Mabye you can use for MACD?

Fetcher[set {stochdiff,weekly slow stochastics(5) %k-weekly slow stochastics(5) %d}
stochdiff is greater than 4

Thanks guys here is the filter now:

Fetcher[Set {MACDdelta, MACD fast line(12,26)-MACD slow line(12,26)}
Show stocks where MACD fast line(12,26) crossed above MACD slow line(12,26) within the last 1 day
and Average Volume(90) is above 50000
and close is between 5 and 250
and MACDdelta is greater than 0.15
and add column MACDdelta
and date offset is 0
