I have a question about the “shift” feature you often find in the modules of EA builders.
Basically I just want to know if the 20 period SMA is rising or not.
Isn’t this true:
20SMA now > 20 SMA (shift 5)
20SMA (shift 5) > 20 SMA (shift 10)
trend is rising?
Is this the intended use of this shift thing you see in so many expert advisor builder tools? I can’t imagine what else you would do with it really.
