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.
Deleted several input variables and functions which complicated the EA operation.
Version 4.1 - 2015.06.22
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).
Version 3.2 - 2015.04.23
Fixed calculating lots of opposite orders.
Version 3.1 - 2015.04.20
Completely revised the EA behavior:
Added closing positions by opposite orders;
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);
Reduced possible balance drawdowns (in the strategy tester);
Fixed minor errors.
Version 2.1 - 2015.04.10
Optimized algorithm of order placement control.
