Is it possible to exclude bars that start at a certain time in an EA? For example if a backtest shows that trades on H! bars of 13, 14, 15, 17,21 and 23 did not do well then how do I exclude them in an EA? Thanks.

Another topic reminded me of a script I custom ordered a few years ago that was a bit clunky so I moved on and forgot about it.

This is what i want to do.( if the Bid crosses a level (A) up and then comes back to level (A) close all orders. if the Bid crosses a level (B) down and then comes back to level (B) close all orders. My code (...
