Not useful if it repaints...
Hello @HPotter
How can I use it on MT4, please let me know.
Thank you.
Thanks for this.
Don't know how to code and hoping you can help.
Just wondering if you can make a V2 that ads another line "hilimit/lolimit" but with another multiplier (i.e 2)

The purpose of which could be for getting out of the trade quicker or adding to positions if price bounces off this new line.

It seems to be somewhat useful in the daily chart and less helpful in a weekly chart.
