Version 7.2 2016.07.21
Due to introduction of a new feature to perform testing "Based on real ticks" to the terminal, optimized the key functions and logic of the EA operation.
Version 6.15 2016.05.26
Changed the function of the built-in indicator.
Added the 'checkTime' input variable (if true - the check of the indicator status is performed by timer, if false - by ticks).
Fixed minor errors.
Version 5.1 2015.10.28
Added the new function for managing the current profit - '_checkProfit'(true - take a part of the current profit, false - use a trailing stop).
Updated the default input parameters.
Minor fixes.
Version 4.2 2015.07.08
The key function of the EA (built-in indicator) now works by timer in seconds - Input-variable _sec.

1. Added ability to trade by the bar history:
Input - CheckBarTrades variable (true - trade by bars, false - trade by ticks);
2. Fixed some errors.
Version 3.3 2015.05.06
Added new rule of placing pending orders:
In case of an open position pending orders can be only opposite ones (SellStop orders for open Buy positions and BuyStop orders for Sell positions).

Fixed calculating lots of opposite orders.
Version 3.1 2015.04.20

Changed the built-in indicator behavior (average price between min/max values of tick arrays are now used for the calculation instead of the price median);
Simplified calculation of lots for new orders (removed MinimumRisk input variable);
Added "_mul" input variable - closing positions by equity (if equity exceeds the account balance multiplied by _mul, a position is closed);
