I understand this, I have read threads, and from my understanding after cross you find high or low of price action and at this point you find 50% between the 2 ma and this is your center from the trendline(beginning of trendline is at cross) but mine isnt matching up. I appreciate your time and showing your method,

Look in your private messages here on BigMikes I am sending you info
