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.
