You would need to create EasyLanguage to do it. Pretty simple really. I have some code that would do it, but am currently rebuilding my trading computer so can't access it. I'll try to remember to come back to this thread in a couple days.

** This is for Multicharts but I think it will work in Tradestation as well.

Input: LT(40);
vars: LtL(0);
LtL = Average(C,Lt);
Plot1(LTL,"Lt");
if LTL >= LTL[1] then setplotcolor(1,blue) else setplotcolor(1,red);

Thanks guys! I was able to create the ma. Now I am trying to get it to actually plot both lines & only change the color of one. Meaning I want to have 2 ma's & the slow ma changes color when the fast ma is above/below it. Any help there is greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all help!!!

** Try this one-

Input:St(5),LT(20);
vars: LtL(0),dir(0),StL(0);
StL = Average(c,St);
LtL = Average(c,Lt);

Plot1(StL,"St");
Plot2(LtL,"Lt");

if StL > LtL then setplotcolor(2,blue) else setplotcolor(2,red);
