I am having the same problem as Maurice.
I have the yellow dots- but no lines in between them.
Apart from that! it DOES work in NT7.
I would really appreciate these lines working. Perhaps I haven't selected some parameter properly?

Hi there,

Did you manage to code the updated version of this indicator? Very curious about to know! :-)

Hi all... max-td, I'll take a look at your MT4 code and see what I can do. (sorry for the late response, I forgot to go to page 2, or more, of this thread, doh!)

@max-td, @dadof3and3

And that is one of the great heys to find hidden divergence.....

Take a look at this...

I really would like to have this indicator with the original logic looking at swings highs/lows in price and comparing it with the exact level points in the indicator in this case the RSI...

Just powerful!!!.... the best divergence is the one that happens with the trend....

hi dadof3and3,
first - thanks for posting a new version of your indicator here !

Sorry to say, but have a problem to understand your definition of divergence.

you catch those points in the price - thats ok so far

but when i look in the lower panel at the indicator, the dots there doesnt seem to catch a clear MacD - turning-point to define a divergence.

most of the time the indicator takes point in the middle of a movement of the MacD (in this example) and dont wait for spotting swingpoint of the MacD.

in my understanding a falling MacD is not the point to define a divergence on -
you have to wait for a turning-point of the MacD to compare it to a turning-point of the price.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

i had a look at some others (StochK / cci ...) and its always the same there - so its not a problem of the MacD - its the way the diver are defined in the indicator-section.

do you get me ?
what do you think ?
