Example of use in Expert Advisors

void OnTick() {

   if(GetAllowCcy(PairSymbol,HourToStart))  //-- if return is TRUE, execute Order
   else return;                             //-- if return is FALSE, skip Order 

} //-- OnTick()

You can set how many hours prior to incoming High Impact News to pause the trade,

for example:

You set News Filter to detect 3 hours prior to incoming High Impact News,

for example the news (Durable Goods Order) will be coming at 19:30 (your PC time),

start from 16:30 until 19:45 (your PC time), News Filter will be activated to pause the trade on USD,

so any pair with USD (EURUSD, USDCHF, etc.) will not be traded (blocked), but the pair without USD (EURJPY, AUDNZD, etc.) still can be traded.

Check following screen shoot for better understanding.
