Choppy Market EMA Identification

This indicator could be used to identify choppy Market Conditions based on the EMA.
It is an EMA that could be configured to only show up, if the last 1..n candles are NOT crossing the EMA in any direction.
I figured out that lower timeframes ( < 30 min) often the price bounces around the 200 EMA and gives lot of false signals using different strategies.
So i decided to write a small indicator to avoid taking trades in those market conditions.

The Indicator could be configured for the length of the EMA and how many crosses must be happened in the defined numbers of candles.
