I would like to test a strategy based in two complementary inputs to trigger buy/sell orders.
One of the inputs would be based on the Zig Zag indicator, following this logic:
a) once the down trendline is drawn downwards, it triggers a buy order input at the bar close at the end of the downward trendline;
b) similarly once the up trendline is drawn upwards, it triggers a sell short order input at the bar close at the end of the upward trendline.

Can someone help me adapting thes easylanguage zig zag indicator code to trigger those inputs?
