Is there a way to write a PCF that would describe the 20EMA converging towards the 40EMA for the last 3 bars and one where there is divergence for the last 3 bars

The 20 and 40 EMAs getting closer to each other while remaining on the same side can be written as follows.

TrueInRow(ABS(MACD20.40) < ABS(MACD20.40.1) AND SGN(MACD20.40) = SGN(MACD20.40.1), 3) = 3

Getting further apart would be the following.

TrueInRow(ABS(MACD20.40) > ABS(MACD20.40.1) AND SGN(MACD20.40) = SGN(MACD20.40.1), 3) = 3

ABS(MACD20.40) < ABS(MACD20.40)??? Wouldnt they always be equal? Am I missing something?

Ditto

TrueInRow(ABS(MACD20.40) > ABS(MACD20.40)

You aren't missing anything. The second instance in each comparison should be MACD20.40.1 instead.
