Weekly MACD Crossover

I would like to set up a scan for full week end of week data crossover of MACD line with MACD signal line.
I can't seem to work it out, and would appreciate some help.

    I'm not exactly sure how Stockcharts handles weekly scans when run mid week. Do they count the days of the incomplete week as a full week, or do they use the most recent completed week?

    In any case, I believe that if you run a weekly scan using the calendar tool to set the scan date to the most recent Friday (or Thursday, if Friday was a holiday, as on Good Friday), you will get accurate results as of that day.

    In any case, the crossover scan would be

    [group is sp500] // or your choice of symbol attributes

    and [weekly MACD Line(12,26,9) x weekly MACD Signal(12,26,9)]

  • Thanks Mark, just what I was looking for.
