Moving Average - TREND POWER v1.1- (AS)

This is first version of this indicator. It's way more complicated than it should be. Check out Moving Average-TREND POWER v2.1-(AS), its waaaaay less complicated and might be better.Enjoy...
In simpliest form this script is a trend indicator that rises if Moving average if below price or falling if above and going back to zero if there is a crossover with a price. To use this indicator you will have to adjust settings of MAs and choose conditions for calculation.
While using the indicator we might have to define CROSS types or which MAs to use. List of what cross types are defined in the script and Conditiones to choose from.The list will be below.

-MA1 can be defined by user in settings, possible types: SMA, EMA, RMA, HMA, TEMA, DEMA, LSMA, WMA.
-MA2 is always ALMA
Default is false but if you want to see MA1/2 on chart you can change code to true and then turn on overlay in settings. Most plot settings are avalible only in OV=false.
if OV=true possible plots ->MA1/2, plotshape when choosen cross type
if OV=false -> main indicator,TSHs,Cross counter

Indicator has three modes that can be selected in settings. First two are presets and do not require selecting conditions as they set be default.
-SIMPLE - most basic
-ABSOLUTE - shows only positive values when market is trending or zero when in range
-CUSTOM - main and the most advanced form that will require setting conditions to use in calculating trend

4.1)SIMPLE – this is the most basic form of conditions that uses only First MA. If MA1 is below selected source (High/Low(High for Uptrend and Low for DNtrend or OHLC4) on every bar value rises by 0.02. if it above Low or OHLC4 it falls by 0.02 with every bar. If there is a cross of MA with price value is zero. This preset uses CROSS_1_ULT(list of all cross types below)
4.2) ABSOLUTE – does not show direction of the trend unlike others and uses both MA1 and MA2. Uses CROSS type 123_ULT
4.3) CUSTOM – here we define conditions manually. This mode is defined in parts (5-8 of description)

SOURCE/OVERLAY(line1) – select source of calculation form MA1/MA2, select for overlay true (look point 3)
TRESHOLDS(line2). – set upper and lower THS, turn TSHs on/off
MA1(line3) – Length/type of MA/Offset(only if MA type is LSM)
MA2(line4) – length/offset/sigma -(remember to set ma in the way that in Uptrend MA2<MA1 and MA2>MA1 in DNtrend)
Use faster MA types for short term trends and slower types / bigger periods for longer term trends, defval MA1/2 settings
are pretty much random so using them is not recomended.
CROSSshape(line5) – choose which cross type you want to plot on chart(only in OV=true) or what type you want to use in counting via for loops,
CROSScount(line6) – set lookback for type of cross choosen above
BOOLs in lines 5 and 6 - plotshape if OV=true/plot CROSScount histogram (if OV=false)
Lines 7 and 8 – PRESET we want to use /SRC for calculation of indicator/are conditions described below/which MAs to use/Condition for
reducing value t 0 - (if PRESET is ABSOLUTE or SIMPLE only SRC should be set(Line 8 does not matter if not CUSTOM))

Here you can choose between H/L and OHLC. If H/L value grow when MA<high and falls when>low. If OHLC MA<OHLC or MA>OHLC. H/L is set by default and recommended. This can be selected for all presets not only CUSTOM

6)CROSS types LIST:
“1 means MA1, 2 is MA2 and 3 I cross of MA1/MA2. L stands for low and H for high so for example 2H means cross of MA2 and high”
NAME -DEFINITION Number of possible crosses
1L - cross of MA1 and low 1
1H - cross of MA1 and high 1
1HL - cross of MA1 and low or MA1 and high 2 -1L/1H
2L - cross of MA2 and low 1
2H - cross of MA2 and high 1
2HL - cross of MA2 and low or MA1 and high 2 -2L/2H
12L - cross of MA1 and low or MA2 and low 2 -1L/2L
12H - cross of MA1 and high or MA2 and high 2 -1H/2H
12HL - MA1/2 and high/low 4 -1H/1L/2H/2L
3 -cross of MA1 and MA2 1
123HL -crosses from 12HL or 3 5 -12HL/3

1_ULT - cross of MA1 with any of price sources(close,low,high,ohlc4 etc…)
2_ULT - cross of MA2 with any of price sources(close,low,high,ohlc4 etc…)
123_ULT – all crosses possible of MA1/2 (all of the above so a lot)

“conditions to reduce value back to zero”
>/< - 0 if indicator shows Uptrend and there’s a cross with high of selected MA or 0 if in DNtrend and cross with low. Better for UP/DN trend detection
ALL – 0 if cross of MA with high or low no matter the trend, better for detecting consolidation
ULT – if any cross of selected MA, most crosses so goes to 0 most often

8)MA selection and CONDS:
-MA1: only MA1 is used,if MA1 below price value grows and the other way around
MA1<price =+0.02
MA1>price =-0.02

-MA2 – only MA2 is used, same conditions as MA1 but using MA2
MA2<price =+0.02
MA2>price =-0.02

-BOTH – MA1 and MA2 used, grows when MA1 if below, grows faster if MA1 and MA2 are below and fastest when MA1 and MA2 are below and MA2<MA1.The other way around for falling.
-MA1 or MA2 <price=+0.02
-MA1 and MA2 <price=+0.03
-MA1 and MA2 <price and MA2<MA1=+0.04
-MA1 or MA2 >price=-0.02
-MA1 and MA2 >price=-0.03
-MA1 and MA2 ?price and MA2>MA1=-0.04

So when CUSTOM we choose :
2)MAs – MA1/MA2/BOTH

So for example...
if we take MA1 and ALL value will go to zero if 1HL
if MA1 and >/< - 0 if 1L or 1H (depending if value is positive or negative).(1L or 1H)
If ALL and BOTH zero when 12HL
If BOTH and ULT value goes back to zero if Theres any cross of MA1/MA2 with price or cross of MA1 and MA2.(123_ULT)
If >/< and BOTH – 0 if 12L in DNtrend or 12H if UPtrend

-script was created on EURUSD 5M and wasn't tested on different markets
-default values of MA1/MA2 aren't optimalized so do not
-There might be a logical error in the script so let me know if you find it (most probably in 'BOTH')
-thanks to @AlifeToMake for help
-if you have any ideas to improve let me know
-there are also tooltips to help
