Default WMA_Colors Indicator

I'm trying to better understand the NT Indicator WMA_Colors, so that I can use it in my Strategy. I want the indicator identify the bar where the line turns from Flat to Up/Down, with COBC=false. I've tried several methods including adding a Public IntSeries variable, but apparently I've not got the placement of the .Set incorrect or incomplete. I'd really appreciate a suggestion to help get my code off the dime.

I am happy to assist you.

I presume you are setting the integer to something like 1 for upward movement, 0 for flat and -1 for downward movement, then checking to see if it changes from, say 0 to 1?

When you refer to a indicator like such :


It will only return the default value of "direction".

Instead, you could determine the direction inside your strategy. You can use the WMA, and Rising() and Falling() functions to mimic what the ColoredWMA does inside the strategy.

Additionally, here is a helpful link covering "Exposing indicator values that are not plots".


Please let me know if I can assist further.
