Stephen Posted June 28, 2018 Report Share Posted June 28, 2018 I have several indicators to trigger buy and sell points. The indicators each use two lines. So when all indicator lines cross in the same direction, it's a buy [or sell]. For example, when a 10 SMA crosses a 20 SMA at the same time as the macd signal crosses the macd main, it could be a buy signal. The problem is that not all lines cross at the same time: the SMA's may cross a candle or two either before or after the macd lines. I'd like to be able to have the alert come up even if the crosses are not on the exact same candle. In the Scan/paintbar editor there is a setting for "candles ago". Does that setting apply to the cross specifically N number of candles ago, or does that setting apply to a cross *within* the last N candles?
