Version 7.16 2017.01.25
In version 7.16, added the change of step between orders (Min_Delta_Open_4p) depending on the number of deal in the package. The more deals in the packet the greater the step.

There are three gradations for increasing steps:
- second value of step - Delta_Open_2_4p (in points, 4 digits);
- Delta_Open_Num_2 - number of the deal of the second gradation;
- third value of step - Delta_Open_3_4p (in points, 4 digits);
- Delta_Open_Num_3 - number of the deal of the third gradation.

When closing a package, the step value is set by the value - Min_Delta_Open_4p

This improvement decreases the drawdown and reduces the number of deals in a package.

Note: Package - group of deals by a signal, from the first after the signal until the last before closing all by target profit.
