Zero Lag MACD problem


New member
Tried to set an alert for ZeroLag MACD signal line value when <=-1.25 in conjuction with a "OverSold" stochastic value. Thinkscript idea will be accepted if created through conditional wizard, but won't work If I cut and paste it into Thinkscript editor. It won't allow me to save it. Tried to create a AddVertLine script with an alert using Z_MACD_signalLine value and Stoch value....all of the code is accepted but the zeroLag MACD signalLine. 99% of this Code is taken from a script I wrote a few months ago that works perfectly......thoughts or fixes????? I saved the Zero Lag MACD script as Z_lag_MACD on my platform.


def x = (RSI()."RSI" + StochRSI()."FullK" + StochasticFull()."FullK") / 3;
def x1 =(Z_lag_MACD()."signalLine");

def VertLine1 = x < 11.5 and x1 <-1.25;
def VertLine2 = x > 0.85 and x1 >87.25;
AddVerticalLine(VertLine1 and !VertLine1[1], "MSU", Color.ORANGE, curve.FIRM);
AddVerticalLine(VertLine2 and !VertLine2[1], "MSD", Color.ORANGE, curve.FIRM);
Alert(VertLine1, "MSU", Alert.BAR, Sound.Chimes);
Alert(VertLine2, "MSD", Alert.BAR, Sound.Chimes);
