Alert: Price crosses a SMA

I'm having trouble setting up an advance alert for when a stock price crosses below a 5 day SMA. Any help would be appreciated.

    There is only an operator for crossing, which is "x" and it means "cross above". So you have to say you want the sma to cross above price. Counterintuitive, since price moves faster than its average, but that's how it works.

    [symbol is 'xxx']

    and [sma(5,close) x close]
