Before openingclosing a position, a simple market analysis is performed, which determines the supportresistance levels, as well as the trend direction — bullish or bearish.
Support and resistance levels are calculated using the last numBars bars.
Trend is determined using the Moving Average indicator (its period is specified in the maPeriod parameter): if the price is below the MA, there is bearish trend, otherwise it is bullish.
If the trend is defined as bullish, a position is opened at a breakout of the resistance level.
If the trend is bearish, a position is opened at a breakout of the support level.
The position is closed by StopLoss, which is set at the support (for a long position) or resistance (for a short position) level.
