# Metastock macd

Does anybody know how to get the regular macd with 2 moving averages on metastock like on website charts, i think it is easier to spot divergences on the macd with 2 ma's, it seems like the metastcock macd with 1 ma lags behind, if you look at a website macd there is a huge difference bewteen the website macd and the metastock macd, i have tried to plot another moving everage on the metastock macd but doesnt match. Appreciate any suggestions.

{MACD Histogram}
(Mov(C,12,E)- Mov(C,26,E))- Mov((Mov(C,12,E)- Mov(C,26,E)),9,E);
{MACD MT4}
FastSMA:=8;
SlowSMA:=17;
SignalSMA:=9;
2iMACD:=Mov(C,FastSMA,S) - Mov(C,SlowSMA,S);
3iMACD:=Mov(2iMACD,SignalSMA,S);
2iMACD; 3iMACD;
FFastSMA:=7;
SSlowSMA:=16;
SSignalSMA:=8;
4iMACD:=Mov(C,FFastSMA,S) - Mov(C,SSlowSMA,S);
5iMACD:=Mov(4iMACD,SSignalSMA,S);
4iMACD; 5iMACD;
FFFastSMA:=6;
SSSlowSMA:=15;
SSSignalSMA:=7;
6iMACD:=Mov(C,FFFastSMA,S) - Mov(C,SSSlowSMA,S);
7iMACD:=Mov(6iMACD,SSSignalSMA,S);
6iMACD; 7iMACD;

macd

Thanks TRDR that looks nice, but im not really used to working with ribbons. It looks like it could be more effective if you know how to use it. But I would still like to find the regular macd, with the 2 moving averages (fast & slow) and the divergence histogram plotted behind. I have succsesfully used it for awhile, and are just use to it. Do you know where i could find the formula for it.
