Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

$30 to make an easy script

All I want is a script that will display the text bullish(also green background)when ema 3 > sma 10, bearish(red background) when ema 3 < sma 10. I'm terrible with programming and willing to fork out some money to get it done right, paypal only. PM if this is within ur skill level, thanks.

Something like this?:

input price = close;
input fastLength = 3;
input slowLength = 10;
input displace = 0;
input FastAverageType = {default EMA, SMA};
input SlowAverageType = {default SMA, EMA};
input Label = Yes;

plot fastAvg;
switch (FastAverageType) {
case SMA:
    fastAvg = Average(price[-displace], fastLength);
case EMA:
    fastAvg = ExpAverage(price[-displace], fastLength);

plot slowAvg;
switch (SlowAverageType) {
case SMA:
    slowAvg = Average(price[-displace], slowLength);
case EMA:
    slowAvg = ExpAverage(price[-displace], slowLength);


AddLabel(Label, if fastAvg > slowAvg[1] then " Bullish " else " Bearish ", if fastAvg > slowAvg[1] then Color.Green else Color.Red);
