IN ADDITION: MACD Divergence Semi-Automatic Scanner ($299 if purchased separately)
Divergences are disagreements between the patterns of prices and indicators. They are among the most powerful signals in technical analysis. Dr. Elder addressed divergences in all of his books, and he recently dedicated an entire e-book to them, with dozens of charts that show how to identify and trade divergences.
Since true divergences rarely occur, it makes sense to scan many trading vehicles when looking for these important patterns.
While writing his e-book on divergences, Dr. Elder came up with this concept: instead of trying to create an automatic scanner, why not build a semi-automatic scanner that will signal when a divergence may be developing. Use the power of digital processing to identify market conditions in which divergences are likely to occur – and then switch to a visual scan of those charts. We created this program to alert you when a divergence may be developing, so that you can start monitoring that chart.
To add MACD Semi-Automatic Divergence Scanner to a TradeStation chart, simply right-click on a chart and choose “Insert analysis technique”. Then select either “Elder Bullish Divergence” and/or “Elder Bearish Divergence.”
If you have Radar Screen enabled in TradeStation, you can use the “Elder Bullish Divergence” and the “Elder Bearish Divergence” ShowMe indicators to find securities that are currently building up divergences. This is very helpful for scanning large groups, such as Nasdaq 100 or S&P 500. The scanner column displays a value only if a potential or actual divergence is present.
