    I’m trying to create a strategy in the AlgoWizard based on divergence but I didn’t succeed.

    For finding divergences firstly I need to find valid pivot points based on zigzag then compare the value of price and MACD in 2 recent pivots.

    So highest or lowest functions can’t be useful.

    I also tried the SQ sample strategy in the AlgoWizard but there is a lot of false signals.

    The divergences are very subjective. We do not have direct tools in AlgoWizard that can be used to really effectively trade divergences. I mean it can be done but you would have to set a very complex system of many conditions. But you can setup simple ones. I have set up a basic MACD Divergence in AlgoWizard. You can check it whether you find it useful

    As you mentioned the divergences are very subjective, I think the validity of a divergence is depending on the validity of pivot points.

    If we can detect the correct pivot points, we can use divergences. In the following chart I used zigzag.

    Can we import zigzag as a custom indicator and extract the distance from current candle to pivots? some thing like this:

    Distance from current candle to First Pivot = 75 candles

    Distance from current candle to Second Pivot = 92 candles

    Distance from current candle to Third Pivot = 119 candles

    Then I can use the follwing formula to detect divergense:
