Please can you make strategy where it can take buy and sell pending order at specific breakout time example ( low and high for the period 3am and 6am i.e before London session by three hours ) or any other time
and indicator which can draw box for this period
the parameter
# Begin Period
# End Period
# Box End
# Number of lot
# Buy and sell or buy only or sell only
# Box breakout offset ( number of pips added to the high for buy position or subtracted from the low for sell position

sorry for my poor language
thanks so much for your help

Great idea borsaty, I trade the london breakout. If you create a automatic box, you can use a breakout indicator, I find it here viewtopic.php?f=17&t=966&hilit=breakout. ;)

I was able to load Strategy Builder without a problem. However, when trying to replicate the Backtest function shown on fxcodebase (download/file.php?id=1912&mode=view) I ran into the problem shown in the attached screenshot. The backtest just shows a horizontal line for equity – in other words, it doesn’t work. Am I doing something wrong here?

It seems that you've set the parameter for the strategy, not for the indicator.

To allow a strategy to trade when backtesting, you should set the parameter "Allow trading" to "Yes" for the strategy chosen in the properties of the BACKTEST indicator.
For this:
1. Open the BACKTEST properties.
2. Click Signal and then click the appeared button.
3. The Strategy Properties dialog will appear.
4. Set the parameter "Allow Trading" to "Yes".
5. Click OK.

Hope this will help.

Inverse Indicator Logic Added.

The Strategy now checks, whether selected Indicator is Supported.

If the required indicator is not supported, post a request, in order to add support for the requested indication.
