Topic: old fashioned MA crossover

Hi all, I`ll skip that I am new here. I spent some days browsing this wonderful forum of M.Popov

The strategy I want to config:
crossover of MA: (best trend i can find is at 30min and hourly timeframes)

(enter Long)=when 7ma(close) crosses 21ma (high) upward
(exit Long)=when 7ma(close) crosses 21ma (low) downward
(enter Short)=when 7ma(close) crosses 21ma (low) downward
(exit Short)=when 7ma(close) crosses 21ma (high) upward                       image uploaded*

it`s a bit different when made with FSB:
1-there is no way to apply 21ma of high or low prices
2-i noticed that FSB didn`t  enter possition every time both fast and slow MA crosses-how i can fix this?

Re: old fashioned MA crossover

This is a great chart for the MA Cross and use it at 30.  It has proven quite successful.
