Saved MACD indicator for modification into PPO Indicator.
Equations for MACD and PPO listed below

MACD Line = 12EMA - 26EMA
Signal Line = 9EMA of MACD Line
Histogram = MACD Line - Signal Line

PPO Line = 100*((12EMA-26EMA)/26EMA)
Signal Line = 9EMA of PPO Line
Histogram = PPO Line - Signal Line

_____________________________________________________________

Here is the modified EasyLanguage MACD Code I created:

{ Moving average convergence-divergence indicator Modified for PPO }

inputs:
int FastLength( 12 ), { the shorter of the two exponential moving average
lengths used to calculate the MACD value, in bars }
int SlowLength( 26 ), { the longer of the two exponential moving average
lengths used to calculate the MACD value, in bars }
int MACDLength( 9 ), { the number of bars over which to exponentially average
the MACD value }
int MACDDiff_Up_Color( Darkgreen ), { color to be used to plot positive values of
MACDDiff }
int MACDDiff_Down_Color( Red ), { color to be used to plot negative values of
MACDDiff }
int BackgroundColorAlertCell( DarkGray ) ; { if alert criteria are met, this is
the color used for the cell background in RadarScreen; if it is not desired
for the cell background color to change when the alert criteria are met, set
this input to the default cell background color }

variables:
intrabarpersist bool PlotCrossBarsAgo( false ),
double MyMACD( 0 ),
double MACDAvg( 0 ),
double MACDDiff( 0 ),
double SlowlengthEMA (0),
double PPO1 (0), {PPO is TradeStation reserved word, used PPO1 instead for PPO}
double HistogramColor( 0 ),
int CrossBarsAgo( 0 ) ;

once
PlotCrossBarsAgo = GetAppInfo( aiApplicationType ) <> cChart ;

MyMACD = MACD( Close, FastLength, SlowLength ) ;
SlowlengthEMA = XAverage (Close,Slowlength);
MACDAvg = XAverage( MyMACD, MACDLength ) ;
PPO1 = 100*(MyMACD/MACDAvg);
MACDDiff = PPO1 - MACDAvg ;
HistogramColor = iff( MACDDiff > 0, MACDDiff_Up_Color, MACDDiff_Down_Color ) ;

if ( MACDDiff > 0 and MACDDiff[1] <= 0 ) or ( MACDDiff < 0 and MACDDiff[1] >= 0 )
then
CrossBarsAgo = 0
else
CrossBarsAgo += 1 ;

Plot1( PPO1, "PPO" ) ;
Plot2( MACDAvg, "PPO Signal" ) ;
Plot3( MACDDiff, "PPO Hist", HistogramColor ) ;
if PlotCrossBarsAgo = false then
Plot4( 0, "ZeroLine" )
else
Plot5( CrossBarsAgo, "CrossBarsAgo", HistogramColor ) ;

{ alert criteria }
if MACDDiff crosses over 0 then
begin
SetPlotBGColor( 5, BackgroundColorAlertCell ) ;
Alert( "MACD diff. crossing over 0." ) ;
end
else if MACDDiff crosses under 0 then
begin
SetPlotBGColor( 5, BackgroundColorAlertCell ) ;
Alert( "MACD diff. crossing under 0." ) ;
end ;

Dallas Trader,

you can prevent division by zero errors by checking if the denominator is different than 0 before performing the division.

 
Code
if denominator <> 0 then 
   divisionResult = numerator / denominator 
else
   divisionResult = 0 ; //specify a fallback value in case denominator = 0; this could be 0 or anything you like to use instead
Regards,

ABCTG
