Hi,
Can you please add or write the function like this
Price went up 1.70 (.30 up) Just want to see up.30) time 9.00am
Starting time price 1.40 EUR/USD 8.am( just want to see (price1.40)
Price came down Price 1.20 (just want to see( Down.20)

Certain time of day price only move .10 .15 points up or down. That is the reason I would like to be precise or very close to it for the price up or down.
It would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Lucky 777
Going to look like this for one hour or what ever time I choose
Up.30
1.40 price
Down .20

Hi I would like some help with this strategy but I don't have a clue about programming. I love this break out strategy and i have been trading it manually for months now so to find an automated version was joy. What I would love is when the 15min candle breaks out and closes outside the range the trade does not enter at the close of that candle but rather on a break of the break out candle.
Can any one assist with this programme.

Thanks.

If I 'm right you want to open a trade not on close candle but on tick the price breakout.
In the check box (red) have two options. Close or tick. You have to check the TICK option.
I wish help you!

Alepan72,

Thanks for your response. No I do not want to trade on the tick when the price breakout. I want to trade on the tick of the break out candle. For eg. If I am on a 15m chart and there is a 15m candle that breaks out of the range and closes, I do not want to trade on the close of that candle but I would rather trade on the next candle that breaks the high of that 15m candle if it is breaks out to the upside or the low of the 15m candle if it breaks out to the down side. The reason why I want to do this is to prevent getting caught in false break outs.
