AddLabel box to display MA cross on different TF?

I'd love to have a text box in the upper left of my chart that shows what direction the last cross was for two EMAs on a particular time frame. If anyone gets bored and would be kind enough to code it I would be grateful. I've tried, but I've come to the conclusion I **** at scripting.

Something like... 10EMA and 20EMA on 1H time frame. If 10 is above 20 it says "bullish" in the text box. If 10 is below 20 it says "bearish". TIA!

@hashy Here is your moving average direction label, works on any timeframe. I have color coded it up for you. Cross Up = GREEN, Cross down = RED

Code:
# Moving Average Cross Direction Label
# tomsk
# 1.5.2020

input price = close;
input length1 = 10;
input length2 = 20;

def MA1 = Average(price, length1);
def MA2 = Average(price, length2);

AddLabel(1, "Moving Average " + length1 + "/" + length2 + " Cross Direction = " + if MA1 > MA2 then "UP" else "DOWN", if MA1 > MA2 then Color.GREEN else Color.RED);
# End Moving Average Cross Direction Label

Beautiful
A bubble on chart and alert has worked for me well. It provides an uptrend or bullish trend ahead to help me go/stay long on the trade. I have attached a screenshot circled MX and GX for MA and Golden crossover scripts below. Good luck! @cabe1332

Hi there,

Newbie to the forum and to TOS Desktop and a non-coder. I was wondering if there is a way to put in a label on the 5 min chart (my main chart/timeframe) that shows the 15 min Moving Average Cross Direction Label as well? I would like have two labels for the Moving Average Cross Direction on my main chart (5 min), one that shows data for 5 min time frame and one for the higher time frame (15 min). Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!

Code:
# Moving Average Cross Direction Label
# tomsk
# 1.5.2020

input price = close;
input length1 = 10;
input length2 = 20;

def MA1 = Average(price, length1);
def MA2 = Average(price, length2);

AddLabel(1, "Moving Average " + length1 + "/" + length2 + " Cross Direction = " + if MA1 > MA2 then "UP" else "DOWN", if MA1 > MA2 then Color.GREEN else Color.RED);
# End Moving Average Cross Direction Label

@cabe1332 Are those BUY/SELL bubbles generated on those particular candles at the closing of the candle?
