When creating a new thread, note which subforum you are in. Here is a short list of suggestions:

- Topic: Anything to do with an Elite indicator -> Subforum: The Elite Circle
- Topic: Looking for an existing indicator, or how-to use an indicator -> Subforum: (the platform)
- Topic: Programmer needing help with non-Elite indicator -> Subforum: (the platform) - Programming
- Topic: Want an indicator created/modified -> Reply to "Want indicator created free" in Elite Circle
- Topic: Vendors (trading rooms, commercial indicators) -> Subforum: Vendors/Product Reviews
- Topic: Discussion of Forex or Currency trading -> Subforum: Forex and Currency Trading
- Topic: Journals of your trading -> Subforum: Trading Journals or Elite Trading Journals
- Topic: General trading related discussions -> Subforum: Traders Hideout
- Topic: Discussion of a trading method -> Subforum: Traders Hideout
- Topic: Automated Trading -> Subforum: Elite Automated Trading

Last, any Elite Member may create more or less any of these topics in The Elite Circle at your own discretion (your support is appreciated).

This is just a short general list and doesn't cover everything. If you are unsure where to create your new thread, just create it in Traders Hideout and a moderator will move it if necessary.

You would need to create EasyLanguage to do it. Pretty simple really. I have some code that would do it, but am currently rebuilding my trading computer so can't access it. I'll try to remember to come back to this thread in a couple days.

** This is for Multicharts but I think it will work in Tradestation as well.

Input: LT(40);
vars: LtL(0);
LtL = Average(C,Lt);
Plot1(LTL,"Lt");
if LTL >= LTL[1] then setplotcolor(1,blue) else setplotcolor(1,red);

Thanks guys! I was able to create the ma. Now I am trying to get it to actually plot both lines & only change the color of one. Meaning I want to have 2 ma's & the slow ma changes color when the fast ma is above/below it. Any help there is greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all help!!!

** Try this one-

Input:St(5),LT(20);
vars: LtL(0),dir(0),StL(0);
StL = Average(c,St);
LtL = Average(c,Lt);

Plot1(StL,"St");
Plot2(LtL,"Lt");

if StL > LtL then setplotcolor(2,blue) else setplotcolor(2,red);
