CM EMA Trend Bars

This Code Simply Changes the Bar Colors based on if the Bar is Above or Below the EMA .

Inputs via the Inputs Tab:
Ability to change the EMA Period.
Ability to Turn On/Off the EMA Plotted on the Screen

***Note - I used the HLC /3 To determine if the bar/candle is above or below the EMA . This Filters out the Chop and gets rid of many of the False Breaks above or below the EMA .
