If you want the exact "speed" of the MA use the following code:
double mySpeed;
mySpeed = Math.Sqrt((value[0]-value[1])*(value[0]-value[1])+1);

I am more focused with the pace of tape and not the speed of MA.

Not sure if that is one in the same.

Here's a picture of the indicator I purchased. It is similar to the PaceofTape-Paris one.

I need to play with the threshold on Cuparis's indicator so see if I can get it to line up better.

FYI pace of tape cannot be backtested. You must use market replay to backtest

a program to help with slope

PicPick screen capture and image editor is an impressive piece of free software for covering most image management needs.

Use the protractor to calc slope


Photo editing
Massive photo editing tools like Photoshop are great, but some find them too heavy and complicated for everyday usage. PicPick is definitely a better choice if what you need is just a simple image editor. With PicPick you can easily perform simple photo editing tasks, including brightness, contrast and color adjustment, grayscale, blur, pixelate and other special effects.


Screen capture
But PicPick isn't just an image editor: it's also a full-featured screen capturing tool with which you can capture the image on your monitor in several ways: full screen, active window, user-defined area and more. Plus, PicPick can work with several documents simultaneously and captures can be triggered with customizable keyboard shortcuts, which makes it even handier.


Other tools
PicPick has a selection of othet tools that you're not going to need every day, but when you do find yourself with a need to, say, pick a specific color on your screen, magnify something, or use a virtual whiteboard to "draw" on your screen. There are 7 of these tools, and although quite niche, they're a nice touch.

@elixir you missed the point.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Cunparis' indicator only works on tick charts. If you use the one by school of trade it seems to work on time based charts. How much did you pay for it - only if you dare admitting it?

And why do you want to line up the two of them?

I have the one from school of trade. It works great for discretionary trading.

I am not sure what two of them you are referring too, but I wanted to try and use speed as a prerequisite for entering trades that break a 'Swing' Level. Or at least see if there is an edge present when speed is high approaching the break of a swing level.

I wanted to use high speed as a condition for breaks of swing levels, and also slow speed for buying/selling back into a sideways range.

Needless to say, my programming skills are rudimentary; so writing the ninjascript free hand is currently beyond my means.

I dont use the Wizard but it is possible to do what you want. Get the actual dimensions of delta x and delta y in inches from a Graphics object and take the ratio. I have done this to scale scharts.
