Used tools and indicators

Bollinger bands (BB period 60, deviation 2). Tunnel below or above EMA will signalize trend. If tunnel touches the EMA this may signalize reversal or ranging market and no trade can be entered. Price escaping the tunnel in the direction of trend will be our trading signal. For price to escape the adaptable BB tunnel, it must move rapidly. This can be considered a breakout in some trading systems. Nonce we observe this situation, we will be looking for signal candle full formed outside of tunnel.

 

Signal candle (min 10pips, max 150 pips). Signal. Single candle full formed outside of tunnel boundaries, closing against the direction of trend. We can define size of a candle body for best results.
