Version 2.2 March 8, 2020

The Multiple MA Cross indicator plots a fast and a slow moving average and colors the area between the two moving averages. Both the fast and the slow moving average may be selected from a collection of over 30 different moving averages.

The indicator is primarily designed as a trend filter to show whether the market is in an uptrend or in a downtrend. The indicator comes with two different trend definitions - cross and thrust. The trend is exposed as a double series and can be accessed via the NinjaTrader strategy builder or the market analyzer. Directly accessing the trend via the market analyzer requires a separately coded market analyzer column, which is not yet included with the install file.

Trend definition "MA Cross": The current trend changes to "uptrend" when the fast moving average crosses the slow moving average from below. The current trend changes to "downtrend" when the fast moving average crosses the slow moving average from above.

Trend definition "Thrust": The current trend changes from “downtrend” to “uptrend” with the first bullish thrust bar that plots above the upper moving average. A bullish thrust bar is a bar that closes above the prior bar’s high and has a larger range than the prior bar. The current trend changes from “uptrend” to “downtrend” with the first bearish thrust bar that plots below the lower moving average. A bearish thrust bar is a bar that closes below the prior bar’s low and has a larger range than the prior bar.

Applying the Multi MA Cross to indicators: The Multi MA Cross is designed to be applied to other indicators which may be selected as input series. However, some of the moving averages listed above will not support this feature. In case that a selected moving average does not support the feature the indicator will display an error message asking you to select a different moving average for the fast or the slow moving average. These are the moving averages that may not be selected when an indicator is chosen as input series: Mean TPO, Mean VWTPO, Median TPO, Median VWTPO, RWMA, VWMA, ZerolagHATEMA. These moving averages may only be applied to price.

Paint Bars: The MultipleMA Cross indicator comes with paint bars. The paint bars are colored according to the trend, where the trend maybe determined via the "MA Cross" or the "Thrust" option. The paint bars may be displayed without the indicator plots.
