Moving average and vix price above/below FisherTransform signal strategy?


New member
Good day, I have been trying to build a strategy around the fishertransformationsignal. However, the buy signal must only be taken IF the price is above the 55 period moving average and the price of VIX is below the mean for the last 55 periods. I have been working this for the last few days and its not working. Can someone assist?

I had actually included it but the same triggers showed up on the charts , so I took it off as it wasn't working. E.g. for the buy order I included just after and close crosses above SimpleMovingAvg("length" = 55)."SMA".....and there were signals that weren't supposed to be on the long side being taken. I'll reinsert it and send the chart as well or I may just do some more work on it. Thx.
