Writing Code

Support Request:

I wrote some simple code. It's two parts.

Part 1 goes on my MACD: AND(CROSSFROMABOVE(ID3.SG3,0)) This works perfect.

Part 2 goes on my second indicator: AND(CROSSFROMABOVE(ID2.SG1,0)) This works perfect.

When I combine them it only works some of the time: I wrote the code two different ways.

Example 1: AND(CROSSFROMABOVE(ID3.SG3,0),CROSSFROMABOVE(ID2.SG1,0))

Example 2:AND(CROSSFROMABOVE(ID3.3,0),ID2.SG1<ID2.SG2)

What am I doing wrong? Thanks

I have written two codes, one for shorts and one for longs.

AND(CROSSFROMABOVE(ID2.SG3,0),ID3.SG1<ID3.SG2)

AND(CROSSFROMBELOW(ID2.SG3,0),ID3.SG1>ID3.SG2)

The Chart you are viewing is a "NQ" 7 Rangebar chart with a MACD indicator and a CCI indicator. As you can see sometimes I get an orange background color when it indicates a short setup and sometimes a green background color when it indicates to go long. Everywhere you see an arrow is where it should be indicating a long set up or a short setup. Those arrow are pointing out the first time they are both above or below the zero line on the two indicators.

I want to know the first time they are both in confluence. I want the color background to trigger as the moment unfolds. Like a warning signal. Then once it meets the criteria then as you can see it should just stay highlighted. I only need that bar to be highlighted.

I hope this makes sense. I appreciate the help or direct me to a person who you think can make it happen. Gregg

OK this is is not very simple.

Our help is available at 50 USD per hour. We do not even know how long this would take and in the end, it may not even be practical to accomplish what you want.

So you could end up spending 50 USD with us and in the end not accomplishing what you want. This is why we will not get involved.

You may want to contact:

Also, if you cannot figure this out you have to ask yourself whether anyone else could as well.

Try this:
Longs:
OR(AND(CROSSFROMBELOW(ID3.SG3,0),ID2.SG1>0),AND(CROSSFROMBELOW(ID2.SG1,0),ID3.SG3>0))
Shorts:
OR(AND(CROSSFROMABOVE(ID3.SG3,0),ID2.SG1<0),AND(CROSSFROMABOVE(ID2.SG1,0),ID3.SG3<0))
where the MACD is ID3 and the CCI is ID2.

Let us know if the formulas in post #7 worked for you. If so, that is good.

After a quick review, we just saw this as not simple and did not want to get involved and just left it at that. But if there was an easy solution, that is good as well.
