How do I compare a price, say a decimal, to a SMA or EMA?
EX. if(price < SMA.currentValue)

Hi S Smith,

Should be just direct comparison. If you have declared price as so (just as an example):

decimal price = 1.50m;

and up in the initializer have SMA declared in the following way (also as an example):

fast = SMA(Symbol, 15, Resolution.Daily);

then you should be able to make direct comparisons to the object. I.e.

if (price < SMA)
//do something here

Sorry, made a mistake. Should be:

if (price < fast)
// do something here
