Moving Average Crossover 0001

706 1 43
The first strategy for my (also first) Everyday project. During the rest of 2016 I plan to create a new strategy everyday
and I give myself between 15 minutes and 2 hours to complete the idea.

The goal is to improve my knowledge of Pine Script, become a faster strategy coder, and experiment with different strategic trading ideas.

I'm new to strategies and algorithmic trading, and hoping to learn from the community, so any feedback, advice or corrections is very much welcome!
