Is there a way i can highlight bars green or red using a simple moving average cross?
Ex. if 8 period close > 8 period open = green bar
8 period close < 8 period open = red bar.

Yes, this can definitely be done using the Color Bar Based on Alert Condition study. Refer to the information here:

Thank you. I was able to get the bar colored based on the 8 period moving average open vs. close using this:
=ID2.sg1 < ID9.sg1

I am also wanting to add to this a condition where the Close of the bar is less than the open.
C < O

How do i combine them together? When I put "and"between them nothing happens.
=(ID2.sg1 < ID9.sg1) and C < O

I saved these studies as a collection. But i dont see how i can add them to another chart. Is there any easy way to just add the collection of studies to a new chart?
