Moving Average Paint Bars New Question

Ok, so what if I want to color my bars based on a moving average crossover...for example a 3 SMA > 12 SMA then color bar blue, 3 SMA < 12 SMA color bar green. Can this be done ?

Use 'Color Bar Based on Alert Condition'. Just write the alert to specify your conditions.

Should be something like '=ID1.SG1 > ID2.SG1' where ID1 and ID2 are the 3 SMA and 12 SMA.
