I use a standard ema on my charts and want to find one that paints itself according to slope (or just up/down) and that, when set to update continuously ("update on bar close" = false), properly repaints itself so it looks the same whether you reset the indicator or not. All the "slope-indicating" EMA's I've found (ema_colors, colorsampleuniversalmovingaverage, etc) don't paint correctly when set to update continuously - they start to have multiple, overlapping colors when the slope is changing.

thanks!

Stupid question: what do you mean by repaint properly? I see that all the time and I don't know what anyone means. Here is the one I use and it prints nice and smooth.

Just that if it is updating continuously it "cleans up after itself" - when it prints a piece of ema and then the bar moves to create a new slope for the ema and thus a different color, it "repaints" such that the first (now incorrect) piece of ema is erased as the chart moves forward.

Thanks - I'll try that one and let you know.

Some indicators recalculate or "repaint" several bars after the fact. You see Blue and you go long, 2 bars later the signal gets changed to red. The indicator you posted does NOT repaint.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

You crack me up. Do you by chance know of an EMA that fits my description? I'm still waiting for the EMA_Slope_Color to "show its true colors" to see whether it repaints correctly...

thx

The EMA_Slope_Color does not repaint. It should do what you want.
