I really like this indicator. Could you add the nonlagMA2 as one of the available moving average methods?

Can we get a correction or explanation for this indicator. If I have the indicator set to 1 slope and 3 bars, my understanding is that the current period line color should be up if the previous three bars average are up, down if the three previous bars are down, and flat if otherwise.

However, it doesn't seem to function that way or else I am misunderstanding what the slope and bars are actually measuring. I say this because the color of the MA for the previous three periods will repaint their colors depending on future bars. I don't understand why. That is, a green bar on my screen will turn red after a few more bars. This is very frustrating. I can understand if the current bar fluctuates colors, but once a period has ended shouldn't the MA color stop fluctuating? Am I missing something?

It is making my backtesting moot since the real-time line fluctuates colors even after the current bar has ended.

if MASO > Slope then Buy;
if MASO < Slope then Sell;
else Neutral;

At the beginning of the period, the absolute difference between current and previous values ​​can,
be less than the value of Pip.

If the difference is greater then Pip, positive or negative indication is given.

Hi Apprentice. Your "Averages_Slope.lua" indicator above is fantastic (it works fine even on tick charts!). Whenever you have time could you please add in its code (if possible) an audio-alert (custom *.wav) when it changes color (slope-change) which should trigger "Live" (real-time).
I don't normally use your optional setting "End of Turn" in your other alert-enhanced indicators (I know some traders do though), I only trade with the "Live" alerts and I must admit that all these indicators of yours are simply awesome! Many thanks in advance! :)
