Cross over system in Sierra Charts

I am trying to create a simple automated system for Sierra Charts using a worksheet. The system is quite simple; it consists of two moving averages, a 40 MA and a 20 MA. The crossover of the 20 MA over the 40 should trigger a sell and the 40 MA over the 20 MA a buy order.
I have tried: =crossover(ID6.SG1,ID2.SG1) where ID6 is identifier of one MA and ID2 is the other one. It did not work. I also tried =crossover(SG1, SG2) and =crossfromabove(sg1,sg2). it gives the "#name?" error.

Post what you have so far so others can help you. You might also clarify exactly where you are running into a problem, your post doesn't say.

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)

I think you are confusing two things. The examples you have tried are relevant to the alerts that you can set up. If you are coding the conditions on a worksheet, you need to use different references.

You will find good documentation on this page:

Sierra Chart - Spreadsheet Functions

Look for the CROSSFROMABOVE entries etc.
