Help with Slope

I need help with programming slope via the NT Strategy Wizard.

I would like to use the MASlopeBoxMulti Indicator if possible, but I can not seem to figure out how to do this properly.

All I am trying to do is set it so that when slope is greater or less than X
Do the following.

or even if slope crossing above below a certain numerical value. I suppose that would work as well.

Thank you,

Fibs

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


Slope is not useful to measure. Charts with dynamic axis that rescale to fit price render slope worthless.

Any attempt to use slope as a signal generator will not work.

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.

You could use value[0] - value[1] of the MA instead of visual slope. This would give you the true "slope" which is just change in Y / change in X

I am actually more concerned with speed and swing levels than slope. Unfortunatley I have not been able to find any speed indicators and have struggled with developing my own. I purchased one from a vendor but it is a utility so I am unable to incorporate it into my strategy.

I was hoping to see if there was any value added by using slope, but I had a feeling slope would be worthless in that sense.

If you guys could help me with how to program speed that would really help, or even tell me why that may not work as well.

I posted in the Develop any Indicator Thread a little while ago, seeking help with that as well.

It is all part of the same strategy I am working to develop.

Thanks

Define speed. Because what I just posted is technically velocity, so is "speed" just the absolute value of velocity??
