Price Direction Indicators for ThinkorSwim

I tried to make a staircase-esque MA, it didn't quite turn out. This was done using some other price direction indicator I made.
Anyways, here's what I came up with, if you want to help and fix the MA to work on lower time frames, it would be much appreciated.

Upper Indicator - MA
Ruby:
# Price Direction AVG indicator - does not look well on larger time frames

declare upper;

def price = close;
input averagetype = averagetype.exponential;
input length = 15;
def close = movingaverage(averagetype, price, length);
def simp = .975+(.05*((close - Lowest(close, 2)) / (Highest(close, 2) - Lowest(close, 2)))); # This is where the problem lies - could be changed to closer represent price change and not just a percentage
plot main = simp*close;

input weight_length = 15;

def l = lowest(main,weight_length);
def h = highest(main,weight_length);

input avg_weight = 20;

plot avg = (main+((avg_weight/2)*l)+((avg_weight/2)*h))/(avg_weight+1);

plot m = (avg+main)/2;
m.hide();

AddCloud(m,avg,createcolor(102,255,102),createcolor(255,102,102));
AddCloud(main,m, createcolor(0,200,0),createcolor(255,0,0));

Lower Indicator - Price Direction
Ruby:
# Trend Direction Indicator
# Colors explained:
#    Green - the brighter this is, the stronger the uptrend
#    Red - the brighter this is, the stronger the downtrend
#    Cyan - if this appears there is a possibility of a stronger uptrend in the near future

declare lower;

input averagetype = AverageType.EXPONENTIAL;
input length1 = 150;
input length2 = 125;
input length3 = 100;
input length4 = 75;
input length5 = 50;
input displace = 0;
input averagetype2 = averagetype.exponential;
