Hello CaptainAmericaXX,

Thanks for your post.

Here is an example using two SMAs:

if (CrossAbove(SMA(10), SMA(30), 1))
Print ("CrossAbove levels: "+SMA(10)[0]+" "+SMA(30)[0]);

Note that the levels of the SMAs in this example would rarely ever be the same because the values are based on a data point of the bar. To better visualize this, change both of the moving average plot styles from line to cross. The center of the cross shows the actual data point of the moving average plot. I've attached a screenshot showing the moving averages plotted as normal Line type and then as crosses.

Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
