Break of Trend Signal- E-mini futures

Hi everyone!

Just curious if anybody uses or has programmed a Break of Trend Signal on e-mini futures? If you look at things manually and draw the trend, your buy zone / sell zone can be identified, but you could be waiting for hours (also wouldn't be able to sit overnight to watch). My question is: does anybody use this concept and have you programmed a system around this / would this be possible to program in EasyLanguage or C#? I attached a screenshot with the down-trend line and the green rectangle being the buy zone. I'm trying to program something that recognizes these trend-lines and when price breaks trend and enters a buy or sell zone to buy or sell. (Ignore the blue short and long signals that are plotted. This is a custom indicator but not autotrader form. I'm trying to use the Break of trend signal to filter when to have long/short signals turned "on" and when to ignore trigger side against break of trend) Thanks!! Tim
