Pending fractal forex strategy

Simple forex strategy using wave structure of the market for order placement. Trending market has characteristic wave structure of higher highs/ lower lows. As long as they are present in the market, trend is alive and kicking. We will place pending stop orders at those newly created extremes. That one last low/high of the trend will leave our last order untriggered.
