beta MACD Histogram divergence indicator

Here's my MACD Histogram divergence indicator first beta release. I'm sharing it to gather suggestion and ideas. Please be very specific and include a annotated picture of any bugs or improvements.
When the hist. crosses the zero line the ind. starts to look for a new divergence.
NOTE: ALTHOUGH, other indicators are available in the pull-down they DO NOT WORK. I will work on them later. Or, better yet, maybe someone else can.

Thanks guys,
Zac

Indicator Setting:
1. The ind. will Not work with 'calculate on bar close' set to False.
2. The default setting are for the ES.
3. DeltaPrice- This is the minimum required price difference from high to high or low to low. Keep in mind 0.75 is only 3 ticks in the ES. That would be 75 ticks(75 cents) in the CL, which is high (unless you are looking at daily bars). The 6E moves in .0001 ticks, so a .75 move in the 6E would never happen. .0005 is probably a more reasonable setting for the 6E.
4. DeltaIndicator- This is the minimum required indicator difference, in percentage, of the recent high/low to the prior high/low. A setting of 0.99 will show more divergences. 0.5 will show practically none.

Edits:
5/15/10 - Written on NT 6.5. Probably will Not work on NT 7 without minor code adjustments.
Arrows are a part of the ind.

Hi,
Is this for NT7 or 6.5?
on my NT7 it says:
import failed. The ninjascript archive file may contain duplicate method names that already exist on your PC or there is a required file missing on either your PC or in inport import archive

thanks

Bells and whistles can easily be added later. Although this ind. is not for detecting crossing the zero line.

Try adjusting the DeltaPrice input.

I wrote it using NT 6.5, so it probably will not work with NT 7.
