TS/MC DoubleMA indicator

Hello everyone,

I am trying to write the TS/MC codes for a doubleMA (pls see below, the same one big mike has on the August 28, 2009 video)



Big Mike's Trading Blog: videos

Does anyone have any idea on that ?

Basically, I want the MA to be blue if >20ma and red if <20ma.

many thanks....

The main difference with doing it in EasyLanguage is MultiCharts (or TradeStation) doesn't have a drop-down menu system to select enums, so it is less user friendly for situations where you have a lot of settings.

But the NT version of DoubleMA is really quite convoluted, it can be written very simply:

 
Code
                            
vars:

doublema (0);

doublema Average(XAverage(Cma1), ma2); 
In English it simply means Average (SMA) of the XAverage (EMA).

Plotting different colors for rising or falling is not hard. I'm sure I've listed examples already on the forum in this section.

You'll want to use a switch () to give the indicator options of defining what type of MA to use, like case 0 = sma, case 1 = ema, case 2 = zerolagema, etc etc.

DoubleMA

Futures Edge on FIO
Hello BM,

thanks a lot for your quick response. I was trying to compile the code, but I got stuck at

"case 3 : ma2series = ADXVMA(C, ma2length);"

any idea why ? is ADXVMA a proprietary function ?

Yes, please read the top section of the code, you will see I said to comment out the ones you do not have, or you can use the search feature and find them on futures.io (formerly BMT).

I am getting error on this line when compiling.

"Plot4( dma, "DoubleMA", iff(dma=dma[1], GetPlotColor(3), iff(dma>dma[1], GetPlotColor(1), GetPlotColor(2))) ;"

------ Compiled with error(s): ------
syntax error, unexpected ';', expecting ')'
errLine 99, errColumn 108, errLineEnd 99, errColumnEnd 108


why is that ? Can anyone help please ?

At first glance, looks like you are missing one ) at the end of the sentence before the semicolon, like the error says "Expecting ')' not ';'".

Add another ) after GetPlotColor(2) and before ;

I looked again at the code I posted, for some reason one of the parenthesis-semicolon was converted to a smilie, so when you cut/pasted it broke it probably. I fixed it now.

Error Compiling Fuctions


I'm moving over to MC64 Release Version 9.1 from NT so was glad to see this port. I downloaded the indicator and all the functions associated with it but when I attempted to compile the functions there was a compile error:

--------------------------------
06.10.16 11:43:55
------ Build started: ------
Study: "ZeroLagEMA" (Function)
Please wait ....
------ Compiled with error(s): ------
Compile error
line 0, column 0
---------------------------------

(Line 0, Column 0) threw me I must admit. As I'm new to EasyLanguage I would greatly appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Thanks
