    SImple EMA Indicator Not Behaving!!

    Hey guys, I wrote a simple Program that Draws an Arrow Conditions are Met. However, I'm trying to make it so that UPTREND is Only established when the fast EMA over "n" periods has been Above Middle EMA, and Vice Versa for DOWNTREND.

    I'm attempting to use
    Code:
    if( (MAX(EntryEMA, 5)[1] > (MAX(TrendEMA, 5)[1])) && (TrendEMA[0] > GrandEMA[0]))
    			{
    				upTrend = true;		downTrend = false;	beginShorts = false;
    			}
    But it seems to not be working. Sadly my knowledge of MAX/MIN is limited, as it's Still Showing Arrows everywhere. I've Attached the Indicator if someone with more experience can please help me out. I'd appreciate it.

    Thank You!!

    Hi ginx10k,

    Thanks for your post.

    The MAX will return the highest value in the entire series. Using the [1] gives you the second highest value in the series. This does not return a BarsAgo value but returns the actual highest price/value.

    http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...aximum_max.htm

    If you are wanting a BarsAgo value, use HighestBar().

    http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...highestbar.htm


    With your current code, if the second highest value in EntryEMA is greater than the second highest bar in TrendEMA on one bar, it will remain so until TrendEMA makes two highs that are higher than the second highest high in EntryEMA.

    So it would be expected this stays true on every bar.

    Let me if this doesn't help.
