Help writing a simple code

I need help writing a simple code. I would like to have a code that will automatically go long two ticks above the open of the candle opens above the pivot. Target 1 is 8 ticks with a 10 tick stop. After target 1 is hit, the stop is moved to break-even. And of course vice versa for the shorts. Some days will be choppy, most days will be a base hit and sometimes you'll get a home-run. Can someone please help me write this for sierra charts. Either a spreadsheet or ACSIL? thank you
