Use the code button (Alt+S) when posting code.

Please edit your post.

I will move this to the MT4 - MQL4 section

Use iCustom()

  1. Please edit your (original) post and use the CODE button (Alt-S)! (For large amounts of code, attach it.)

  2. Just get the value(s) of the indicator(s) into the EA (using iCustom) and do what you want with it.
    You should encapsulate your iCustom calls to make your code self-documenting.

    SetIndexBuffer(0, TrendUp);
    SetIndexBuffer(1, TrendDown);
