Programming help for making an Indicator into a strategy. How do I ask?

Hey Folks!
Got a question ? I found an indicator that I really like MACD/Bollinger/CollectiveMA signals posted by shodson. I have been using it with 10 min candles on the EUDUSD and EURJPY . About every 8 hours there tends to be be a consolidation and break out in these currency pairs and this indicator is very accurate in determining the direction. I would like to try to develop it into a strategy but I am still a beginner programmer. How do I best ask for help with this and where? thx

Some suggestions

Mojo,

I think it would be very helpful if you attach some chart examples with markups on the indicators used, the instrument(s), the time frame(s), NT version and the specific criteria that make up your entries/exits etc. Without this detailed information it will be very difficult for you to get help.

At least one of those indicators is Elite only, so careful with what you attached as this is not an Elite thread.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

@BigMike - I think @Mojokix can still attach marked up charts showing how to use the elite indicators or I am wrong?

Yes for sure, just no attachments of Elite indicators themselves.

More Details

So I have manually gone through 180 days of EURUSD and EURJPY 10 minute candles and found this pattern. (perhaps it is common knowledge for some traders I don't know). As you may know there are 3 major Forex markets opening and closing in a 24 our period, New York, Japan/Australia and London. When there is a strong consolidation period between the close of one and the open of another... the the first significant move is usually in the direction that first candle closes outside of the Bollinger Bands. This indicator is very good at pointing these potential entry's out. I would love to have a strategy that could:

1) be turned on and off based automatically base on time of day.

2) qualify what the best minimum consolidation period is .. ATR and number of BARS

3) Buy, Sell set stops
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

There are a few more nuances that I would add but I would be happy to back test this.

your advice and help would be appreciated.

(I can only get the indicator to work in NJ 6.5)
