Ah shucks!

My exit logic is off. Printing some erroneous arrows along with leaving some of them out.

Haha, I also just realized I indexed some of the entries a bar late, i'm seeing this as I'm watching the signals develop real time.

If you mean the actual script that I wrote, I hadn't posted that, only cause I need to overwrite the original Prof Indicator that I posted since I modified that. Still unorganized. I had just stuck code in there in a sloppy way, and wanted to at least tidy that up and post it first(since my script requires that mod to the original).

Not sure if I should post the package, or just post my script w/o the mods to the original?

If you post what you have written, others can help evaluate it. Or not... It's strictly up to you...

Whatever you feel comfortable doing.

Ok. I'll post the script after cleaning up the original so it will work when someone loads it.

This is probably one of the most un-elegant scripts ever created.

Code on futures.io (formerly BMT) is like an old Clint Eastwood movie... The Good, the Bad and The Ugly...

Added in a menu in the user input to individually toggle any condition I could want to show trades. I still need to tweak the original indicator so that it can be used w/my script. Right now I have it a bit 'rigged.'

My script is now over 7000 lines long and still tweaking it! It could have been much simpler, but I wanted everything to be able to be broken down into its individual parts for testing if I wanted.

In thinking of things I have left to do, I think I'm going to add in a time filter to be toggled as well. I think that's all I will have left to do before I create a strategy with it.

When you post the final release, could do two versions; one as an indicator and the other as your strat version.
