I use a MACD Daily 500,100,60 to follow trends on a monthly chart.
Would it be possible to free up the MACD stock screen input to allow for user input settings?

You can see where the entries are on the chart, as you can see I would like to be able to filter based on my own MACD settings.
I have tried many different screen setups to identify these MACD 500 signal line crossovers as yet with no perfect solution.

Ok so I know the MACD is not a unique indicator, that it is essentially a moving average system: moving average convergence divergence.
So why is it the Moving Average screens I have tried based around the EMA 500 /200 /100 and down to 26 /12 results are so varied to the above MACD 500 indicator crossovers? It seems to be very subjective, more art-form than science...

I guess thinking about getting exact results is probably a no-go due to the MACD formula & signal MA line shifting the indicator from the standard MA. I'm thinking more simply in terms of the crossover as a signal that screens on the crossover.

If you are looking for a straight 200/500-day crossover, this is available with the moving average filter:
