Topic: Price % difference from EMA divergence/convergence
Posted: Thursday, March 23, 2017 4:30:05 PM

Before I did that, I just re-pasted the exact same existing formula in. It seemed to recalculate things and the correct flags are now showing. Note that the formula was not different, nor did I delete the column. I just pasted the same formula in the editing window on top of itself, then closed it. Just thought you should know.

Thanks again for all the help. Much appreciated.

No, I usually manually refresh from the main window. I did refresh before sending this to you and just now, and CEF persists.

The notepad paste contains the formulas taken directly out of the column's formula. I just confirmed them against the same two formulas in this thread -- they'r e the same.

This is a fund -- could that have anything to do with it?

It's possible that I'm not seeing well, but I wanted to show you anyhow.

"1 and 2" are copied directly out of the "Edit Condition" calculations for the columns, just to be sure.

Do you think it was simply not updated? Just curious, not to concerned about it.

Hello. I'm seeing a ticker return true for both "strength" and "fading". Is this possible? 
It's CEF.

Yes, I assumed it would be true/false. These are perfect. I appreciate your help -- the support brings incredible value to the platform. Thanks again.

Hello.
I use the following to track how far above or below price is to the EMA8. I use it as a column.
(C - XAVGC8 ) / ((C + XAVGC8) / 2)*100

This is helpful but doesn't really depict directionality. There are four conditions I'm interested that would better characterize the relationship between price direction and the EMA8.

I would like to track the trend of price on a 3-day basis in the following ways:

  1. Price is above the EMA8 and diverging "further up and away" from the EMA8 over the last 3 days [strength]
     
  2. Price is above the EMA8 and converging "down and toward" the EMA8 over the last 3 days [could fade]
     
  3. Price is below the EMA8 and "converging upward" toward the EMA8 over the last 3 days [could build]
     
  4. Price is below the EMA8 and "diverging further away" from the EMA8 over the last 3 days [weakness]

Do you have suggestions on how to build these? 
Thank you.

Hi, Bruce. Thanks for yesterday's help. 

A few brief follow up questions:

  1. What's the longest time available for the evaluation period (below example is using 200 days)?
  2. Is it possible to do something similar for intraday? I don't need how yet, just a yes/no.
  3. The example you provided counts oscillations to either side of the EMA (which is what I wanted). To do just one side, say counting "crosses above 8EMA" only, would the formula look bethe following?

CountTrue(XUP(C, XAVGC8) AND SinceTrue(XUP(C, XAVGC8), 10) >= 3, 200)

Thanks very much.
