I will save you a little time and frustration.  It's been done a million times, and nobody has ever found the holy grail backtesting two moving averages.

People think the Holy Grail is something looked for but never found. In fact, it is something often found but rarely recognized.

In 2018 here at TT, someone posted an exhaustive study that a place like seeking alpha had completed.  The results were the 12/49 periods had the best long term (decades) cross over results.  I found that interesting since LesH over at Silicon Investor used the 12/48 in his work that I copied from the late 1990's.  FWIW.  LesH profile below.
