Dear esteemed & learned Ami-scripters:

I am working on an indicator and I am absolutely banging my head on the wall and going down in flames!



I am trying to create code that will automate the process described below.

If some of you would help me, I would be extremely grateful (and might even get some sleep at night).

I am willing to do the work on this, but I don't know enough AFL to figure it out.

I have read help files, looked at other code, watched YouTube videos, you name it.

Here is what I am trying to do:

1=True 0=False

If Buy =1 today
& Sell & Short & Cover =0
Enter Long Position

If Buy =1 yesterday
& Sell & Short & Cover =0
Stay in Long Position

Test every bar to ensure we Stay in Long Position

If Sell or Short or Cover =1
Exit Long Position
Take action based on which one(x) =1

Test every bar to ensure x=1

If Sell or Short or Cover or Buy =1
Exit x
Take action based on which one(x) now =1

Continue this process until...

Thank you in advance,

Don
