Nope - you cannot use "monthly" in filters in this fashion. Only daily and weekly are active. In safetrade's example above, the word monthly is simply ignored. Also, he uses only ema(20) and not monthly (if that could be used, which it can't).

You could try weekly EMA(4) crosses above weekly EMA(80) - that would be about as close as you can get in SF right now.

Actually, there are about 22 trading days per month.
So 20 months = 440 days.
So EMA(440) should be equivalent to a "monthly" EMA(20).
Am I thinking correctly?

HOWEVER: there is a limit to the number of days one can use and thru experimentation it is 400 days.

So right now I have a EMA(400) line on my charts...it seems to do the job.

MY filter says "and Close above EMA(400)".
