Displacer crossing MovAvgTriangular scan

HI Ben/Everyone, Can you pls. help to setup the following scan in TOS?

I'm looking for the stocks which are crossed the displacer over the MovAvgTraingular indicator.

Here is a chart with the studies that you referenced:


The scan you have in post#1 is correct in both logic and syntax.

It scans for close displaced by -1 when it crosses above the MovAvgTraingular average.

I am assuming the reason for your post is because the scan returns no results, no matter the aggregation or how many bars back are scanned. The Displacer study is just price offset by -1. I don't totally understand how an offset can be negative but I am assuming that is where the problem lies and that it is not a condition that is scannable.
