 Indicator Usage Description Example sma sma[x,n] OPERATOR (INDICATOR or POSITIVE NUMBER) , where x is a positive integer >= 2 and n is optional and represents the number of days ago the result is computed (n=0 is the default value and represents the current end of day, n=1 is the previous end of day, etc.) Returns the x-day simple moving average closing price from n days ago. (sma[20] > sma[50])

Introduction:

The 'sma' indicator is used in indicator formula construction to narrow the stock pre-screener results to include only those stocks that have a simple moving average stock price restricted to the parameters set for the sma indicator.

Calculation:

Add up each of the last x-day closing stock prices then divide the sum by x.

Example:

Below is a chart of Amazon (AMZN) highlighting days where the last daily close was above the 50-day simple moving average AND the previous daily close was below the the 50-day simple moving average.
