Hi,
I created a simple EMA cross over strategies using the NT8 strategy builder. But i am stuck. I want to add a third condition like: I only want to go long if my first condition is = and above the 150 EMA. In other words, i only want to take a trade when;
]
1. both the fast and slow are above the 150ema
2. and price came down and touch the 150ema.

Evaluate each of your criteria set true or false. You need something like:

bool fastAbove150;
bool slowAbove150;
bool touch150;

The first two are easy to determine. The third is a little more tricky, but I would I would do something like:

if (low[0] <= EMA150 && close[0] > EMA150)
{
touch150 = true;
}

Buy when all three are true. Do the reverse for a short.

I tried it and here are my results....not sure if this is what you are looking for....found 250 worked better....had Profit and Stop in initially....but not used......long only......but there were some good shorts also...stopped when price crossed the 250 after the long trade ...........RTH only...Notice the ETD....looks like we lost some 10000+ when we came of the high.......there is some good income there......trailing stop? or 10% or 20% off the high program stop....hmmmm

I re-read your specs again and changed the software a little....this time go long if fast is above slow and all are above emaBig...150/200 etc..
and once fast crosses over slow exit the long and wait until price touches EMAbig again before starting another long.... here are the results...
