There is several ways to look at it. Create the Modified MACD with DEMA or only use DEMA in the last line of CODE or both. Though the way you describe the formula in your original post, I believe, dema should only be applied at the end.

The zerolag was thrown in just to give you an idea about another smoothing method. The only way that I know of to verify your indicator is to compare the values to the original work if you can. The beauty of using and writing metastock code is that there are literally thousands of ways to write an indicator. A lot of what you will see is called smoke and mirrors, simply meaning that it looks nice but isn't necessary. The Dema moving average is a good example of this. As we can see it can be written in long hand or short hand. Its a great learning experience though. If there is a site where we can locate the original values let us know and we'll check out the values. Preston
