I am using MACD for generating buy and sell calls. now i want to filter my signals with suppertrend indicator.
suppertrend indicator for UPTREND & DOWN TREND.

EX: i don't want to plot GREEN ARROW(BUY) in DOWN TREND
i don't want to plot RED ARROW (SELL) in UP TREND

this is my MACD code:

if(TSSuperTrend(7, TradingStudies.NinjaScript.Utility.MovingAverageType.HMA, 1.618, 7, TradingStudies.NinjaScript.Utility.SuperTrendMode.Adaptive).Trend[0]==true)

if(CrossAbove(dotSeries, BB_UpperBand,1)&&up)
Say(" There is a Buy Call in" +Instrument.FullName+"" );
over=true; // only say it once per bar



if(TSSuperTrend(7, TradingStudies.NinjaScript.Utility.MovingAverageType.HMA, 1.618, 7, TradingStudies.NinjaScript.Utility.SuperTrendMode.Adaptive).Trend[0]==false)

if(CrossBelow(dotSeries, BB_LowerBand,1)&&down)
Say(" There is a Sell Call in " +Instrument.FullName+ "");
over=true; // only say it once per bar


I have problume with "&&up""&&down" Functions. i can't see my Arrows in correct place. because of "&&up".
EX:GREEN ARROWS waiting for RED ARROWS. please give me your valuable suggestions.

Thank You,

There is anaSupertrend indicator in downloads section which is better than the old TS supertrend...try it if you want to use it as a filter.
