I would like to ask you to add a confirmation of the next candle closing price to the conditions of orders opening:
If a buy signal - the closing price of the candle, crossed the entrance level in the old scheme, should be above the old level of the entrance. Buy immediately after such closing. This candle does not necessarily have to be exactly next. As it has illustrates at figure. Main confirmation is close above the old entrance.
