Colored EMA Indicator





This is a modified version of the exponential moving average indicator. The only difference is that it changes color based on price action.

How It Works

When the closing price is above the EMA, the EMA will turn green for bullish.

When the closing price is below the EMA, the EMA will turn red for bearish.

Settings

EMA Length:
This sets the calculation period of the Exponential Moving Average.

EMA Source:
This sets the data source of the Exponential Moving Average.

This is awesome – exactly what I am looking for – thank you!!
Apart from changing ‘study’ to ‘strategy’, can you help me with the buying and selling lines of code so I can backtest this? Thank you for any help/
