The following code is not working. Can someone tell me how to get arrows on the screen when the Macd generates a buy or sell signal?

temp4 = MacdExtSignal(12,_MaEma,26,_MaEma,9,_MaEma);
a = cross(temp4, 0);

The above code plots and arrow when the Macd crosses above the zero line.
You plot the Macd line and get a visual confirmation.

What do you mean by "Macd generates a buy or sell signal", how do you define that?

I figured it out. It should have been

temp4 = MacdExtSignal(12,_MaEma,26,_MaEma,9,_MaEma);
a = cross(temp4, 0);
a = cross(0,temp4);
