Ema Short Long Indicator[CHE]


This Pine Script is an EMA Short Long indicator that displays the crossing EMA lines on the chart. The indicator uses three exponential moving averages (EMAs) to generate the buy and sell signals. The EMA lines are plotted as green (uptrend) and red (downtrend) lines. When the green line is above the white signal line, the indicator generates a buy signal, when the green line is below the white signal line, the indicator generates a sell signal. Arrows are also displayed marking the buy and sell signals. There is also an option to allow indicator repainting or not. Finally, users can also set alerts to be alerted to potential trading opportunities.

Note: please do not disable "time frame gaps". Allows to calculate the indicator on a Timeframe (TF) different from that of the chart Time window. The TF should ideally be higher than the charts to provide a broader perspective than
the TF of the chart. Using TFs lower than the chart's will deliver fragmentary results, since only the last value of intrabar is displayed (multiple values cannot be displayed for a single chart bar). The Gaps setting determines the behavior when the TF is higher than the TF of the chart. If 'gaps' is checked, higher TF values only come in and are interconnected on the diagram when the higher TF completed. This has the advantage of avoidance Real-time epainting. If Gaps is not enabled, Gaps are filled with the last higher TF value calculated, which will not produce a repaint Values on historical bars but repaint values realtime.


Load the indicator on an active chart (see the Help Center if you don't know how).

Time period

By default, the script uses an auto-stepping mechanism to adjust the time period of its moving window to the chart's timeframe. The following table shows chart timeframes and the corresponding time period used by the script. When the chart's timeframe is less than or equal to the timeframe in the first column, the second column's time period is used to calculate the Ema Short Long Indicator :

Chart Time
timeframe period

1min 🠆 1H
5min 🠆 4H
1H 🠆 1D
4H 🠆 3D
12H 🠆 1W
1D 🠆 1M
1W 🠆 ​3M


The script begins by setting up the chart indicator with a short title, "ESLI", and enabling it as an overlay. It then initializes several variables for time conversions, to be used later in the script.

The timeStep_translate() function converts the timeframe of the chart into a string representing a larger time interval, based on the number of seconds in the timeframe. The resulting string is used to label the horizontal axis of the chart.

Next, the script defines several input variables that can be modified by the user. These include the colors of the EMA lines and the signals, whether or not the indicator is allowed to repaint (i.e. update past values based on future data), and the number of periods used to calculate the EMA and signal lines.

The f_security() function calls the function to fetch data from the specified security and timeframe, and is used to calculate the EMA and signal lines using the ta.ema() function. The clo variable is assigned the closing price data, adjusted for repainting and timeframe.

The EMA line is calculated using a weighted average of the EMA over the specified period and two times that period, as well as three times that period, divided by six. The signal line is calculated as the EMA of the EMA line over the specified period.

The col_css variable sets the color of the EMA line based on whether it is currently above or below the signal line. The script then plots the EMA and signal lines, and uses the plotshape() function to indicate long and short signals based on the crossovers and crossunders of the EMA and signal lines.

Finally, the script sets up alert conditions using the alertcondition() function to notify the user when a long or short signal is generated, including information about the symbol and closing price.


Special thanks to LOXX, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for his valuable input in the EMA calculation. His insights and expertise have greatly helped me in improving my Pine Script coding skills. Thanks to his suggestion, I was able to better understand the EMA formula and implement it effectively in my script.

Your generosity in sharing your knowledge and experience is truly appreciated. It is through collaboration and exchanging ideas that we can all grow and become better in our craft.

This script provides exact signals that, with suitable additional indicators, provide very good results.

Best regards
