It displays momentum direction too.

2. Slow MA Length. The length of the slow Moving Average (SlowMA > FastMA)
3. Signal Length. This is used to display the momentum.
4. Display Signal. Optionally the signal to determine momentum can be displayed as well.
5. Reverse view.
The default parameters are 34-89, but the values depend on which MA pairs you want to study, like 8-21, 21-55, 55-89, 55-144.
