MACD Divergences on price and indicator

MACD Divergences on price and indicator

Here you are an indicator that shows divergences on price and MACD at the same time.

Indeed, you need to put 1 indicator on the price chart and another as a new indicator.

Divergences are drawn automatically and it does not repaint.

    @ Jose
    Gracias por estos indicadores que parecen muy buenos !

    Puedes preguntar a PRT para tener los segmentos mas gruesos ?


  2. Jose7674 • 248 days ago #

    De nada, un placer. Adaptarlo a cualquier otro indicador es sencillo.
    Si el indicador es rapido (estocastico, rsi), N deberia ser 20.

    En indicadores mas “lentos” como un MACD estandar se puede subir el valor de N a 40

    Neat! You should do the same for RSI and MFI. I usually validate divergence on all three.

    • Jose7674 • 247 days ago #

      It’s quite simple.
      Just change mimacd=rsi[14](close)
      On both and it’s done

      You can use any other indicator this way

    fine work
    I’ve been looking for this for a long time.

  5. Inertia • 244 days ago #

    Well done !

    Muy Buen trabajo Jose… no lo he podido mirar hasta ahora… y me parece muy bueno…… sobre todo en otros indicadores, con tu permiso lo adaptare para otros indicadores como HPI.. la versión mejorada..

    • Jose7674 • 243 days ago #

      Claro, es muy sencillo de adaptar!
      Ya pondrás algún resultado o idea que saques. La idea surgió al ver tu indicador modificado. Creía que también dibujaba las divergencias … y ya empecé a pensar como hacerlo

    Excelente indicador @jose7674 Seria ideal que pudiera detectar las divergencias reales como lo hace y ademas las escondidas (hidden). Gracias

    @jose7674 este indicador es una auténtica joya, muchas gracias por compartirlo.
    Uno de los inconvenientes es la visibilidad, como comentaba @supertiti. Lo he tuneado un poco y después del drawsegment he añadido

    DRAWARROWDOWN(barindex[1], miRSI[1]) COLOURED(200,0,0)

    para las bajistas, y

    DRAWARROWUP(barindex[1], miRSI[1]) COLOURED(0,200,0)

    para las alcistas.

    Lo de las divergencias ocultas sería un plus. No tengo nivel para esto, pero @Francesco hizo también un gran trabajo con este indicador que sí las incluye:

    Saludos y gracias de nuevo por tu aporte.

    divergence lines on MACD indicator are not showing. It shows only on Price chart

    • Nicolas • 97 days ago #

      Because you have to apply it on the price chart too.

  10. tradingthelife • 91 days ago #

    Hay alguna manera de hacer un proscreener para este indicador? Lo he intentado pero no lo consigo.
    Saludos y gracias.

    How can I just draw the latest divergency line? I try the following but no line is drawn.

    for i2=1 to N
    if mimacd[i2]=extremum11[1] then

    drawsegment(barindex[1], mimacd[1], barindex[zz2], mimacd[zz2]) coloured(0,200,0)

  12. thomas2004ch • 2 days ago #

    I use the break to get off after the first divergency line is drawn. But this seems not work.
