Indicator for Slope of MA

Hi all, I was looking to create an indicator that would highlight different slopes in other indicators, in this case Simple Moving Averages. For instance, something that would turn the 50 day moving average green or striped when sloped steeply upward or red when sloped steeply downward, say at a rate of x points per y minutes. Is there any similar indicator to this already invented, or a good way to get started on this type of indicator?

Yes, try Hull Moving average, most of them change colors with the slope.


Hey, I made this a while back but didn’t post it, I will post it soon and call it SlopeMA.


What am I doing wrong. I cant search for any indicators (on the web or on the windows thick client)

I copy/pasted the below comment from another post I answered a little while ago. It’s probably not you.

From earlier:
Don’t bother requesting. This forum and platform was given up on when Tradovate sold to Ninja for their customers. I’ve had an acct with TVate from the begining, and am grandfathered in with a couple things, there hasn’t been an update in 2 years or more, no one from Tradovate/Ninja visits this forum anymore. Brian Weiss has “new position” with Ninja…idk what happen to Greg…TVate’s main coder/IT guy that was always in here. It’s a dead forum. I’m just letting you guys know so you don’t waste your time wishing and hoping. Too bad someone couldn’t pin this post…but if anyone wants to copy/paste when someone posts a new thread, or even start a new thread with this post, feel free. It probably won’t help much, but maybe someone from the company will see it. In fact, the last time I contacted live “help” from the chart browser, they didn’t even know the forum existed. And when they told me they weren’t aware of any problems, I pointed them to this forum where there are complaint after complaint of the same thing…and then I never heard back from them. There were a bunch of really good coders building great indicators that gave up and moved on after awhile. It had promise in the beginning. Perhaps that was their business model, build a decent client base, then sell the Co.?
The platform has just gotten impossible to use, and the fact they no longer are compatible, or connect with Sierra Chart, is an another issue. I suspect because Ninja owns them now and would like you to use that platform. Fact is, for me, when blips or server connections start to cost you money, or spending a half hour everyday trying to get indicators to load, or not there even when you switch timeframes…it’s just time to move on…
