Need Scanner for MACD averages


New member
I have got the following code from an online/youtube video [100% credit goes to the AUTHOR ]. I would like to turn this into a scanner where I want to see GREEN BARS in my results or wanted to see only "UpTrend" data in my search result. any help would be appreciated.

declare lower;
input midTermPeriod = {"1 min", "3 min", "5 min", "15 min", "30 min", "60 min", "120 min", "Daily", default "Weekly", "Monthly"};
input longTermPeriod = {"3 min", "5 min", "15 min", "30 min", "60 min", "120 min", "Daily", "Weekly", default "Monthly"};

input fastLength = 12;
input slowLength = 26;
input MACDLength = 9;

input midTermFastLength = 12;
input midTermSlowLength = 26;
input midTermMACDLength = 9;

input longTermFastLength = 12;
input longTermSlowLength = 26;
input longTermMACDLength = 9;

def middleAggregation;

switch (midTermPeriod) {
case "1 min":
middleAggregation = AggregationPeriod.MIN;
case "3 min":
middleAggregation = AggregationPeriod.THREE_MIN;
case "5 min":
middleAggregation = AggregationPeriod.FIVE_MIN;

middleAggregation = AggregationPeriod.THIRTY_MIN;
case "60 min":
middleAggregation = AggregationPeriod.HOUR;
case "120 min":
middleAggregation = AggregationPeriod.TWO_HOURS;
case "Daily":
middleAggregation = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
case "Weekly":
middleAggregation = AggregationPeriod.WEEK;
case "Monthly":

switch (longTermPeriod) {

AddLabel(yes, if Diff > Diff[1] and midTermSignal == no and longTermSignal == no then "U" else if Diff < Diff[1] and midTermSignal == yes and longTermSignal == yes then "D" else "N");
