If you haven't already searched:

1. Click search top right.
2. Click search attachments.
3. Keyword macd.

There are something like 100+ MACD indicators when I did a quick search.

A lot of people like this version created by @FatTails, it can be configured to do just about anything you can think of with an MACD plot... MACD BB Lines V3

Be Patient and Trade Smart

Here's one you can play around with, too.

Modified the MACD awhile back for someone else. It has the ability to color the background based on the cross of the MACD over the Average line (Agressive = true)....or the cross of the MACD over the Zero line (Agressive = false). There are some other features, too.

.zip of indicator and screenshot attached.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

I've been playing around with modifying a few of the indicators to customise the colours to make them pop out a little and also to modify the inputs e.g., for MACD to change the type of the MA used to reduce the lag. Its more for education than anything else, but I'd recommend trying that to anyone as well as searching for ready made indicators. Plus of course there are a lot of experienced developers on here (from the posts I've been on).

Best of luck.
