Description:

This indicator was designed to identify positive and negative trading signals for stocks and mutual funds. The heart of the indicator involves applying an oscillator to the relative strength line. Trading signals result from identifying strong relative strength, which is a positive indication, while weak relative strength is considered a negative sign.

1. The MACD of the weekly stock/S&P ratio is greater than zero, and
