MA Cross - ***Programmers*** Please help with alertcondition()

Hello Traders and coders,

Here is a fundamental version of a moving average cross trading strategy that works on 1H and 4H timeframes.

It's very simple and would be well paired with proper technical analysis and risk management.

I am looking to use this to alert me of potential setups. I could not get the alertcondition function to work properly. If anyone can help me with that please comment or message me.

If you have yet to figure this out, I would be happy to help
I'm sure you've figured this out after 5 months, but for anyone having the same problem I'm pretty sure it's because alertcondition doesn't work if the script is a strategy. Only if it's a study (the relevant part is mentioned on line 2) - I'm not fully confident this is the case, but there's so like Pine script info available online I figured I'd try and contribute.

@scarf, Replying to your edit - thanks for the information. Any one else still trying to figure this out, this is the case. You cannot have it as a strategy, it must be a study.

Were you able to get a solution to this? I have a project I'd like to implement (pay for someone to develop) and it depends on being able to alert by sms. Just wondering if you solved it? - thanks! Also, how do I find programmers on here who are available for hire?
@niallc, Hi Niall I used Codementors to find a programmer to help me out with the pine scripts. Cost me only 15$ for 15 minutes on a 1 to 1 video chat.
Did you find another solution yourself.
Greetings from Cork, love the flag btw.

@IrishInvestor, Fair play to you - thanks! I never followed up on that and took a break from trading actively so no...never did get a solution. But I'll be bookmarking that site for sure. I live in Atlanta now, but I'll be back in Dublin for me father's birthday in a week or so...Cheers and Be Well. Niall.
