Description
Compares two values for two bars to see if their ranking has changed
Syntax
Cross(value1, value2)
Parameters
value1  formula related to bar data
value2  formula related to bar data
Notes
This function is a shortcut for the expression value1[1] < value2[1] and value1 > value2.
It is most commonly used to compare two moving averages, or price to a moving average, e.g. Cross(MA(C,5), MA(C,20)) would return 1 (true) if the 5day average was below the 20day average yesterday and is above it today.
Logically, Cross(A,B) means "A has crossed above B". To test for "A has crossed below B", simply use Cross(B,A).
