I knew somebody was going to say this.

Coded for you, but when a position is reversed, it must run additional 2x the spread to get the expected reversal result. Test it (forward testing!)...

Hi Dan

It will open on breakout of previous bar. On daily chart, previous bar is yesterday. That's the way it actually works. You can attach to 4h to catch breakout of previous 4 hours.

Hi Scorpion,

Say, if I was going to use this on a 1 hr chart....would I set the order lifetime to 59 min and if not hit in that time frame the order would be cancelled and we would look at the new 1hr bar.....

could you add a trailing stop feature??

Thanks, Dan

Hey Dan

You can set order lifetime to any minutes you want. (Order_Life_Mins in the settings). You want it to expire in 59 mins, set Order_Life_Mins = 59. Try this.

And trailing stop is there too. Set TS_Mode = 1 will trail the trade SL. Note that it will start trailing only price move more than x pips as specified in TS_Trigger.

These are all in Expert Settings. Check that.
