 Indicator Usage Description Example macd macd[f,s,t,r,n] OPERATOR (INDICATOR or NUMBER) , where f,s,t are positive integers >= 2, r is optional where r {f, s, t} and n is optional and represents the number of days ago the result is computed (n=0 is the default value and represents the current end of day, n=1 is the previous end of day, etc.) Returns one of the following: (1) the f,s,t MACD if r is not provided; (2) the s-day exponential moving average if r = 's'; (3) the f-day exponential moving average if r = 'f'; (4) the t-day MACD trigger value if r = 't'. ((macd[12,26,9] / ema[26]) < -0.02)

 Introduction: MACD (moving average convergence divergence) measures the distance between 2 exponential moving averages. The distance is in terms of price so it can be more useful to calculate the % distance from a moving average rather than the magnitude. The 'macd' indicator is used in indicator formula construction to narrow the stock pre-screener results to include only those stocks that have a MACD restricted to the parameters set for the macd indicator.In the description above the 'f' is the fast EMA, 's' is the slow EMA and 't' is the t-day EMA of the MACD (trigger line). Example:Below is a chart of Intel (INTC) highlighting days where the 12-day EMA was more than 2% below the 26-day EMA.
