actually i want to coding multiple strategy according to high volume and low volume.

for high volume situation, using scalping strategy and low volume for another strategy.

The fact that is 'peak hour' as you call it does not mean that these session related currency pairs have the highest volume so why do you not do a volume scan over SymbolsTotal() and save the results in an array, and then look for ArrayMaximum than you can be sure to end up with the high rollers.

does that make any difference?

previous bar say's nothing about the bar to come.

a scan over SymbolsTotal() will tell you where the heat is.
