NAHL is still bearish by my chart.$NAHL&p=D&yr=0&…



I follow the 9 day EMA of $NAHL at, Elan apparently uses the 13 day EMA.
As of tonight the 9 day moved above zero or bullish, while the 13 day version is still just bearish.

This last week has been the longest span I’ve noticed where GTR1 and stockcharts differed.
Besides possible differences in data sources, I think GTR1 uses a weighted average calculation while
stockcharts uses the exponential moving average. While they are generally close,not so this time. The MACD graphs show the EMAs.

As I noted, and NH-NL signals have differed in the past by a day or two, until now, when it was several days, from August 8 to 11.

Today they again differ, one negative, one positive, so I wondered if the NH-NL value needed for this signal difference could be estimated from this small data set. Changing the test from EMA (9) > 0
to EXP(9)> -20 is bullish, seems to line the results of the two methods fairly closely. I found a few earlier one or two day differences in mid 2021 which also lined up.

Not the most accurate of calculations, but it does give an idea of the size of NH-NL that can cause a change in the two signals.

Changing -20 to -21 might be slightly better.

This clearly won’t change anyone’s use of these signals, just my curiosity about when we can expect such signal differences.
