The Expert Advisor uses the Donchian Channel indicator. Limitations: no more than one position can exist in the market, the next position can be opened not earlier than in 24 hours.

Donchian Channel indicator values are used as signals for opening a position and applying the trailing stop function.

An example of a BUY signal: if the upper buffer of the indicator on the first bar is greater than that on the second bar, open BUY:

The lower indicator buffer is analyzed for SELL signals: if the lower buffer of the indicator on the first bar is less than on the second one, it is a signal to open SELL.
