  • MACD signal (260,120): We consider MACD histogram only. Histogram bar must close below the zero value for short entry or above the zero value for long entry. Histogram bar must be larger than previous histogram bar.

  • Awesome oscillator signal: Awesome histogram closing below zero with last bar closing higher than previous histogram bar – enter long. Awesome histogram closing above zero with last bar closing lower than previous histogram bar – enter short.

  • Closing awesome module: Opposite awesome signal for entry occurs, while trend might still last. To close with awesome, position must be in profit defined by profit points for awesome.

  • Profit points for awesome (300 points): Minimum profit points to allow close position on awesome signal reversal.

  • Signal candle (body size 300 to 1500 points): Candle with defined body range (min/max) closing in the direction of trend (defined by filter). Candle must surpass previous low/high in the direction of trend.

  • Volumes: Volumes on signal candle must be greater than on previous candle.

  • Universal trailing stop (Extra deviation for the trail stop). Based on last closed candle high for short trade and candle low for long trades.
