There’s only one signal but Could you add the sell signal?
 
There’s only one signal but Could you add the sell signal?
it is buy signal indicator. anyway, I added sell signal from the same code concept. You may need to test it further.

@samer800 I tested it for $AAPL and $ES futures, and the buy or sell signal doesn't show up, could you take a look, and if possible have the last moving average cross only show the buy and sell? thanks a bunch.
 
@samer800 I tested it for $AAPL and $ES futures, and the buy or sell signal doesn't show up, could you take a look, and if possible have the last moving average cross only show the buy and sell? thanks a bunch.
it should work fine. if you use manual timeframe, make sure the selected time frame to be higher than your chart time frame. it is limitation from TOS.
 
Tried a ChatGPT code earlier, it did not work, something about loop backing.

Anyway, on second try, this is what I downloaded to TOS, it works, its adjustable to fit your trade regime, and will throw out a buy signal that pretty much sticks for a period of time???

# Moving Average Crossover Strategy
# Buy when 50-period MA crosses above 200-period MA

input fastLength = 50; # Length of the fast moving average
input slowLength = 200; # Length of the slow moving average

def fastMA = MovingAverage(AverageType.SIMPLE, close, fastLength);
def slowMA = MovingAverage(AverageType.SIMPLE, close, slowLength);

def buySignal = Crosses(fastMA, slowMA, CrossingDirection.ABOVE);

# Plot the moving averages for visualization
plot FastMAPlot = fastMA;
plot SlowMAPlot = slowMA;
FastMAPlot.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(1));
SlowMAPlot.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(2));

# Plot a buy arrow when the buy signal is true
plot BuySignalPlot = if buySignal then low - 2 else Double.NaN;
BuySignalPlot.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.ARROW_UP);
BuySignalPlot.SetDefaultColor(Color.GREEN);
BuySignalPlot.SetLineWeight(2);
 
Is it possible to have a vertical pole that goes from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen at the point of the crossover?

This is just a simple indicator for moving average crossover but added scanner, cloud, and alerts for additional visual effect and enhancement.

For example, if 5/10 EMA crossover is your strategy, then this indicator plot an up arrow on the golden cross and down arrow on the death cross. You can also use the scanner to scan for stocks with EMA crossover and the built-in alerts to let you know as it happens.

Good Afternoon @BenTen, I'm very grateful for this indicator, I would like to know if you can add the option to turn on/off the clouds and the option to lower the contrast of the clouds on the settings. Thank you again.

You need to re-copy and paste it into your study tab
F0aefah.jpg

In chart settings
To turn on/off the clouds, click on see clouds
To change cloud coloring:
1. click on Globals
2. click on the color, you want to change
When done, go to the top of settings and click on Save as default to preserve your preferences for use on future charts.

ty so much .How to ad a parameter as follows ??
if FastMA crosses 1 point higher above SlowMA
??thanks in advance

??thanks in advance
the best I guess to use ATR band. Add below code and you can use the signals if FastMa cross above/Below the ATR band.

CSS:
input atrLength = 200;
input atrMulti = 1.0;
def streach = ATR(Length = atrLength) * atrMulti;
AddCloud(slow_ma + streach, slow_ma - streach, Color.DARK_GRAY, Color.DARK_GRAY, yes);
 
This is one of my favorite indicators on TV built by EquityCraze there.

@samer800 - I'd sincerely appreciate any help with the conversion of this indicator. Thanks in advance.

I'd love to be able to stick to a single TOS platform vs. switching for validations. :cool:

this is a simple moving averages crossing.

Thanks so much for this @samer800

I quickly tested this, and I don't see the signals I see on TV for the TOS code.

I can see the MA being printed earlier in the screen

Is the script in the first post the latest one? I need alerts on the chart for any 2 MAs crossovers.. Please guide me.. If there are changes to the first post script, please send me the post# of the script where there is a latest script for the MAs cross overs with alerts, bubbles etc..
 
Since this is a moving average crossover indicator place, I would like to ask to add this indicator construct below to constructions already presented in this thread, with partial extract from :
https://usethinkscript.com/threads/center-of-gravity-cog-indicator-for-thinkorswim.138/
maybe as a function being referenced. You can use the code below as a stand alone indicator to test.
I have found this crossover very good to suggest reversals.

# source from https://usethinkscript.com/threads/center-of-gravity-cog-indicator-for-thinkorswim.138/
input price = close;
input length1 = 5;
def displacement1 = (-length1 / 2) + 1;
def dPrice1 = price[displacement1];
def tmp1 = if !IsNaN(dPrice1) then Average(dPrice1, AbsValue(-length1)) else tmp1[1] + (tmp1[1] - tmp1[2]);
def tmpx1 = if !IsNaN(price) then tmp1 else Double.NaN;
plot Data1 = tmpx1;
Data1.SetDefaultColor(color.CYAN );
Data1.SetStyle(Curve.FIRM);

#this is secondary moving average based on the previous one
def price2 = Data1;
input length2 =2;
def displacement2 = (-length2 / 2) + 1;
def dPrice2 = price2[displacement2];
def tmp2 = if !IsNaN(dPrice2) then Average(dPrice2, AbsValue(-length2)) else tmp2[1] + (tmp2[1] - tmp2[2]);
def tmpx2 = if !IsNaN(price2) then tmp2 else Double.NaN;
plot Data2 = tmpx2;
Data2.SetDefaultColor(color.yellow );
Data2.SetStyle(Curve.FIRM);
 
Is the script in the first post the latest one? I need alerts on the chart for any 2 MAs crossovers.. Please guide me.. If there are changes to the first post script, please send me the post# of the script where there is a latest script for the MAs cross overs with alerts, bubbles etc..
