Slope vs angle

I checked the code in the ColoredMA that I posted a link to in my last post. It colors that Line based on the slope alone. Most of the colored MA's posted in the downlaod section are actually checking the angle of the line. That way you can differentiate between slowly rising and steeply rising, which some feel gives you an idea of the momentum of the trend.

You have to add code in several places to accomplish this. If you are comfortable with coding you can down load one of the colored ma's in the download section and copy the code snippets to your own code.
Good luck

Hi RBSailing, thanks , but the universal MA is just a MA with color depending on slope. I was looking for an indicator which gives the SLOPE of an MA! Do you have an idea where to go?

Hi Wolfsch

The indicators that I have seen that paint the line according to the trend and "slope"
of the line calculate the angle of the line and then filter that by fixed angle values to determine the color of the line.
If you import anyone of those and open it in the editor window you should be able to copy the relevant code.
Let me know if you are having problems or need help.

Indicator

I have added the code to calculate the angle of the slope of the indicator to the TEMA in the NT indicators. I have posted the resulting indicator in the download section. Just look for TEMA With Slope.
You can call this indicator in your strategy and get the value of the slope for each bar.
The code would be

TEMASlope(Close,13,false).MASlope[0]

this will return the slope of the line at the current bar. The "13 is the period of the TEMA.
