Topic: How to block short trades?

Hi

1. I would like to have long only strategy... how to block short trades?

2. Also how to enter at 0.8 standard deviation of Bollinger Bands? Why there is a minimum limit of 1 SD?

Re: How to block short trades?

Use the "Long or Short" indicator with rule "Open long only".
You can set it as an "Opening logic condition" and it will allow only long entries.

..

You can customize the Bollinger Bands indicator and to change the parameters limits.

Thank you!

How one can customize limits?

Re: How to block short trades?

Customize by using the 'lock'.

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

You can download the indicator code form GitHub (All indicators are open source): https://github.com/PopovMP/FSB_Pro_Indicators

Open the indicator code in an Editor and modify the limit you want.
Put the modified file in the  Indicators folder: C:\Program Files\Forex Strategy Builder Pro\User Files\Indicators

When you restart FSB Pro, it will load your version of the indicator instead of the original one.
