Awesome Oscillator

The Awesome Oscillator is a MACD built from a fast and a slow SMA. You can find it here:

This version of the Awesome Oscillator has the raw MACD and a signal line, but does not include the histogram.

MACD Universal

I have coded a version of the MACD, which allows to select both fast and slow moving average from 27 different moving averages, which lets you test 27 x 27 = 729 combinations.

The indicator can be found here:

Don't hesitate to come back, if you have any questions regarding the code of either of the indicators.

The chart below shows the MACD (SMA, SMA, 12, 26, 9).
