Moving Average Multitool

bjr117 Updated   
I made this script as a personal tool while backtesting multiple moving averages. It allows you to easily access and switch between different types of moving averages, without having to continuously add and remove different moving averages from your chart.

It also has the option to show the a 14 period average distance between the closing price of an asset and the selected moving average, as a multiple of ATR. This number can be shown by enabling the "Show ATR Between MA and Close" setting. The intention of this value is to quantify and compare the speed of different moving averages across any instrument and any timeframe. The higher the value, the slower the moving average. The lower the value, the faster the moving average.
