Hi, I'm manually testing a strategy (going back on the chart and playing it 1 bar each time). I'm using the closes and openings prices as the prices I entry/exit a position. Now if for example the spread averages 3 pips, and I enter when the opening of a bar is 1.10000 and exiting when the opening...
I guess I dont understand this part of building an indicator as well as I thought. I want to have a single price line, with three different colors, bullish, bearish, or neutral.

Hi everyone, I am looking to hire a programmer to write an EA using 2 or more currency pairs. eg the AUDUSD and the NZDUSD The program would be a typical hedge EA. ie it would go long in one pair and short in the other.
