Data Source For Moving Averages

Is it possible to specify the source of data for a moving average indicator?

I'm assuming the default behavior is close  via x => x.Value but I want to use open.

Please checkout the docs under the Indicators section. Yes, for data point indicators (which we just need one value) the default behavior is close. In order to select the field of your choice:

// 3. Indicator of a different property (default is close of bar/data):
// TIP -> You can use helper methods Field.Open, Field.High etc on the indicator selector:
var emaDailyHigh = EMA("IBM", 14, Resolution.Daily,
point => ((TradeBar) point).High);
