    How to add Up and Down Arrows to boundary's with Renko Blocks using Strategy Builder?

    I want to add up or down arrows when price contacts TMA (triangle moving average) bands. Attached is a screen shot of the chart with trend boundary's that I want to have the arrows show up when the Renko blocks touch or pass through the boundary's.


    I watched and followed how this strategy builder video explained to do show up and down arrows.

    My strategy builder code compiles to:

    Hi Tonofit, thanks for posting.

    The best way to share code is to Export the strategy and posting the .zip file. Consider using the CrossAbove/CrossBelow conditions to see if the price crosses the TMA value:
