This is a basic backtesting script for charting the and cross of two user defined simple moving averages, select the cog next to the name of the script ON the price chart in the left hand corner. The script will print to the screen either "Long Entry" or "Short Entry" depending on the direction of the cross. The script using TradingView strategies will subsequently close the opposite of the position that is executed when the or cross occurs. Simply put, if you are short and a cross occurs, your short trade will close and be logged in strategies and the long will fire. You can pyramid the long and short positions to continue entering as long as the trend doesn't flip. You will find this in the script settings. Since this script is for backtesting you can manually set the "backtesting range" for TradingView Strategies and firing the "Long Entry" and "Short Entry". This as well, is in the settings.
Notice: When the cross occurs, you have to wait till the next candle before TradingView Strategy will print the "Long Entry" or "Short Entry" to the screen
