SMAA help

Postby johannmeya » Wed May 24, 2006 8:45 pm

First, thanks to everyone for the help, advice and support. I may be "down" now, but I won't give up. Round#2 is next. Better planning, better strategy.

I have two questions right now. I loaded SMAA Compass - but I couldn't find ver5? The latest version I found was only a reference to ver3. (on the TREND) thread. Is ver5 available somewhere?

The other question is that maybe I am not sure how SMAA MACrossOver works. I tried to do a test and wanted to see the MA on a chart.

Both are 5min, and MA's are 5 & 20, for both radarscreen and chart. Usually it seemed to work, but on a couple stocks it indicates "OVER" when the fast MA is under the slow MA? I have attached a pic. This is a random pick - shouldn't FxS be "UNDER" here?
(Thick yellow line is 20MA, and dotted yellow line is 5MA)

Aloha,
Johann

Make sure you have enough additional bars loaded.

I usually use 400 on 1 - 60 minute charts.
