New article Price Action. Automating the Inside Bar Trading Strategy has been published:
The article describes the development of a MetaTrader 4 Expert Advisor

principles, as well as pending and stop order setting rules. Test and
optimization results are provided as well.
All Forex traders come across the Price Action at some point. This is
not a mere chart analysis technique but the entire system for defining
the possible future price movement direction. In this article, we will
look at the Inside Bar pattern in details and develop an EA for tracking
the Inside Bar and performing trades based on the pattern.
The Price Action is a non-indicator price movement detection method
using simple and complex patterns, as well as auxiliary chart elements
(horizontal, vertical and trend lines, Fibo levels, support/resistance
At first glance, the method may seem rather complicated but
actually this is not the case. The method is gaining popularity from
year to year, since its advantages are evident, for example, when
compared to the methods involving technical indicators.
Inside Bar is a bar having its body and wicks contained entirely
within the range of the previous (mother) bar. The inside bar's High
lies lower and Low is located higher than the mother bar's ones. Mother
and inside bars form a pattern considered to be a potential entry
This is a two-sided pattern, since it may indicate either a reversal, or a trend continuation.

I have one doubt, i.e. will this EA work only on the condition "second (2) bar is bearish and first (1) is bullish". What will happen in reverse case i.e. second bar is bullish and first bar is bearish.
I am a fan of the inside bar strategy. So far I have traded the inside bar only manually on the daily weekly and monthly time frame.. I like your expert very much.
Is it possible to get some more detailed explanation about the settings of the expert.
I appreciate your feedback
