Use a custom TradingView indicator to trade on GDAX

Hi,

I found a great custom indicator on TradingView, developed by Chris Moody. Here is a picture of the indicator on Bitstamp ETH/USD :

I think the color change makes a great trade signal (buy when it switches from red to green and sell when it switches from green to red).

I have the source code, which is in TradingView's language, now the big question is : is there an efficient way to implement this strategy without re-coding the whole custom indicator using Quantconnect's API ?

I know Python but I don't know TradingView's language. Any help is greatly welcome !

 

Here is the code of the indicator on TradingView :

out = avg

out1 = security(tickerid, res, out)
out2 = security(tickerid, res, out_two)

ma_up = out1 >= out1[smoothe]
ma_down = out1 < out1[smoothe]

col = cc ? ma_up ? lime : ma_down ? red : aqua : aqua
col2 = cc2 ? ma_up ? lime : ma_down ? red : aqua : aqua
