Hello

Is there a formula that would show me stocks where the 200, 50 and 10 day moving averages are touching or that are close together.

Thank You

Steve

Sort any WatchList by this condition in ASCENDING order:

(ABS(AVGC200-AVGC50)+ ABS(AVGC10-AVGC50)+ ABS(AVGC200-AVGC10))/MINC200

You should see your stocks at the top of the list.

Here are two videos to review:

Hi,

Could you also please write a PCF to find stock with their 10, 20, and 50 simple moving average close together or touching.

also one with their 20/50/200.

Thank you very much.

I am new to the system and having a tough time setting formulas
I am mostly interested in MA crossovers say stocks that have crossed up for the last 3 days using 10 and 50 day MA. Also, stocks that have crossed down.

Please help!

For starters, welcome to the TeleChart community.

Have you had a chance to review these videos?

If you are new to TeleChart READ THIS FIRST!

Below Bruce has the formulas for both simple and exponential. Be sure to review the videos I linked above... they will save you a ton of time in the future.

henrietta,
Please try the following (SMA is a Simple Moving Average while EMA is an Exponential Moving Average):

10-Period SMA up thru 50-Period SMA (last three days):

AVGC10 > AVGC50 AND (AVGC10.1 < AVGC50.1 OR AVGC10.2 < AVGC50.2 OR AVGC10.3 < AVGC50.3)

10-Period EMA up thru 50-Period EMA (last three days):

XAVGC10 > XAVGC50 AND (XAVGC10.1 < XAVGC50.1 OR XAVGC10.2 < XAVGC50.2 OR XAVGC10.3 < XAVGC50.3)

10-Period SMA down thru 50-Period SMA (last three days):

AVGC10 < AVGC50 AND (AVGC10.1 > AVGC50.1 OR AVGC10.2 > AVGC50.2 OR AVGC10.3 > AVGC50.3)

10-Period EMA down thru 50-Period EMA (last three days):

XAVGC10 < XAVGC50 AND (XAVGC10.1 > XAVGC50.1 OR XAVGC10.2 > XAVGC50.2 OR XAVGC10.3 > XAVGC50.3)

henrietta,
A False result is not an error message, it just means it isn't True for test symbol. You will need to update your Personal Criteria Formulas. Select Databank | Personal Criteria Formulas | Update All Criteria. This is all covered in more detail in the second of the free training videos referenced in my previous post.

I finally got the formulas to work but it really seems to have some flaws in them. Perhaps it's me For example:
10-Period SMA up thru 50-Period SMA (last three days):

AVGC10 > AVGC50 AND (AVGC10.1 < AVGC50.1 OR AVGC10.2 < AVGC50.2 OR AVGC10.3 < AVGC50.3)

i am using S&P 500 for scanning purpose and I am getting 14 stocks that have crossed up for the past 3 days but reviewing the charts like SYK, it surely hasn't crossed anything... Please help!

henrietta,
On my computer, the Moving Averages do cross if the chart is using Simple Moving Averages and don't cross if the chart is using Exponential Moving Averages. Please try the Exponential version of the formula (the version you posted uses Simple Moving Averages) or adjust the settings on your charts to use Simple Moving Averages. You may wish to review the following:
