Strategy Analyzer with SMI5

Hey everyone,

I'm having a few issues getting the SMI5 to work in the Strategy Analyzer. I read the Holy Grall II thread where someone suggested using SMI2 instead. It seemed like an old post so I was hoping any issues with SMI5 were fixed. Can anyone confirm?

Basically, part of the strategy is to go Long when the SMI Up dot crosses over the SMIEMA. Any ideas on what could be wrong with the line of code? Thanks!

if (SMI5(true, 0, 34, 1, "long.wav", false, "AutoTrail.wav", 1, 8, "short.wav", false, 15, false).SMIup[0] > SMI5(true, 0, 34, 1, "long.wav", false, "AutoTrail.wav", 1, 8, "short.wav", false, 15, false).SMIEMA[0])
{
EnterLong(
1, "");
DrawArrowUp(
"My up arrow" + CurrentBar, false, 0, 0, Color.Lime);
}

Nothing happens, that's the problem It's not triggering any trades, even if I pull out all the other conditions and leave just the SMI5 condition. I've gotten my strategy to work with all the other custom indicators I'm using, this one just seems to be giving me a hard time.

Basically, the indicator will plot in the Strategy Analyzer Chart, but no trades are executed because the SMI5 conditions are never met. This clearly isn't the case when you look at the chart and SMI5 indicator.

Try to print the tested values:
SMI5(true, 0, 34, 1, "long.wav", false, "AutoTrail.wav", 1, 8, "short.wav", false, 15, false).SMIup[0]
and
SMI5(true, 0, 34, 1, "long.wav", false, "AutoTrail.wav", 1, 8, "short.wav", false, 15, false).SMIEMA[0]

This doesn't seem to work either, nothing prints.

I tried using the SMI2 instead and that "somewhat" works. It looks like there is some repainting going on.

I have read few treads, some time has gone by and still could not find solution to be able to use this indicator in the strategy.
Has anyone succeeded?
