    121 ea

    The pattern is taken directly from Bryce Gilmore's The Price Action Manual.

    I'm open to other favorite 121 setups.

    Here are some live examples from the last couple of days... am thinking enter at D and exit at C



    **** EA DETAILS AND DOWNLOAD HERE****


    - ECN_Broker = True; //set to true if broker requires sl/tp to be set after placing order my broker is ECN, so have to send it without then use ordermodify to add SL & TP
    - Enable_ABCD = false; //enables trades on ABCD patterns
    - Enable_5_0 = True; //enables trades on 50 patterns (or reversal 121 - C is lower than O)
    - EntryBuffer = 10; //number of points above or below signal bar to enter.
    - TrailStartPercent = 60; //(0 disables trailing with pSAR) Percentage of target distance to move before starting to trail stop with PSAR
    - TrailShift = 2; //number of Bars back to use PSAR value from
    - pSAR_Step = 0.02; //standard pSAR settings
    - pSAR_Max = 0.2; //standard pSAR settings
    - BreakEvenPercent = 50; //(0 disables) Percentage of target distance to move before moving stop to breakeven
    - CommissionPoints = 10; //(0 disables) number of points broker charges for commission for breakeven. if I set sl to openprice, my trade is a loser. my broker charges 1pip (10 points). so it moves the stop to open+-1pip
    - tradeComment = "one2one EA v0.7";
    - ExitZone_Enabled - Enables exiting using time/fan fib rules
    - ExitZone_TimeFib - Value of timefib to start monitoring exit of failed pattern
    - ExitZone_FanFib - Fanfib level to exit failed pattern after price has passed TimeFib
    - ExitZone_MoveWithSignal - Move the exit zone if pattern expands (D Moves past origina signal)
    - CloseInvalidPending - Close pending orders if pattern is invalidated (ie the indicator has removed the pattern from the screen. Valid patterns should remain for the duration of the trade)
    - CloseInvalidOpen - Close open active orders as soon as pattern is invalidated (ie the indicator has removed the pattern from the screen. Valid patterns should remain for the duration of the trade)
    - RemoveExitZoneOnClose - If set to false exitzone lines won't be removed when trade is closed.
    - EnableScreenShots - saves screen shot of all order transactions (open orders, move pending orders, move stops)
    - EmailScreenShots - email screenshot when created using xpMail dll - only works via a gmail account for free version. dll goes in to experts/libraries folder
    http://www.xpworx.com/includes/dodow...ad_name=xpmail
    - MinProfit_Points - this setting lets you avoid trades with small profit targets. eg 1min TF sometimes it picks up small invalid patterns
    - MinRewardRatio - allows specify minimum reward side of the risk/reward ratio ie risk = 1 / reward = MinRewardRatio
    - AlwaysUsePending - if the pending entry price violates the broker stoplevels then change the price of the pending entry to the minimum allowed. if false it will just enter the trade immediately rather than use a ending order

    ****LATEST UPDATE ****
    Fixes:

    1. Fixed issue with fixed stoploss not being honoured
    2. Fixed issue with 50 pattern not taking preference of ABCD
    3. Cleaned up SendEmail function and fixed issue with it displaying incorrect number of digits for JPY

    Changes:
    1. Replaced TakeProfit_Points and StopLoss_Points with the following as requested. So values can be different for long and short

    BuySL_Points //when set to 0 uses point B of pattern
    BuyTP_Points //when set to 0 uses points from patterns - C for ABCD, X or C for 50 depending on greater tp
    SellSL_Points //when set to 0 uses point B of pattern
    SellTP_Points //when set to 0 uses points from patterns - C for ABCD, X or C for 50 depending on greater tp

    2. Added Trailing entry options
    TrailEntry_Enabled //obviously enables trailing entry
    TrailEntry_MoveStop //if true will also move stoploss for pending order same number of pips entry has moved. Otherwise stoploss is reduced as entry moves closer

    3. Standardised the ExitZone settings and added some extra functionality

    ExitZone_Enabled //Enables / disables the use of the exitzone
    ExitZone_InBkGrd //places exit zone objects in background if true
    ExitZone_Color //colour to use for the exit line of the fibfan specified by setting " ExitZone_FanFib"
    ExitZone_TimeColor //colour to use for the TimeFib. Dulled it down a bit as requested and it's much more palatable
    ExitZone_ShowFan //if false it won't display the whole fan, just the exit line of the fibfan specified by setting " ExitZone_FanFib"
    ExitZone_FanColor //if displaying full fan, colour to use for other fan lines
    ExitZone_RemoveOnClose //if false, does not remove the exitzone after trade is closed (this setting was just renamed in line with the others)

    4. Added screenshot sizing and standardised parameter name
    SShots_Enable //Saves screen shots for all order actions
    SShots_Width //set width of screenshots in pixels
    SShots_Height //set width of screenshots in pixels
    SShots_Email //send screenshots via email

    Working on for next release:
    1. Snapshot n bars after order close (this was submitted by kopaszn)
    2. Secondary Entry (more details to come)
    3. Tighter Entry with PRZ
    4. Adding Confirmations
    5. Stop & Reverse (more details to come)

    ***Version 0.9 Update***

    Fixes:

    1. Fixed issue with closeinvalidopen setting not being honoured (thanks to Jonty172 for his testing detecting the bug)
    2. Changed the filename format of screenshots so they show in proper order in filelist (as per kopaszn's feedback)





    Added:
    1. Specific settings for enabling/disabling trailstop and breakeven, so you don't need to set the values to 0 to disable
    BreakEven_Enabled
    TrailSL_Enabled


    2. Standardised TrailStop and BreakEven parameter names


    3. Disabling ExitZone_ShowFan will now just show the exact exitzone lines between stoploss and takeprofit and not the whole fan

    Still working on:
    1. Snapshot n bars after order close (this was submitted by kopaszn)
    2. Secondary Entry (more details to come)
    3. Tighter Entry with PRZ
    4. Adding Confirmations
    5. Stop & Reverse (more details to come)


    ****EA DOWNLOAD****

    Zip Folder with all necessary files: one2one_John_v0.9.zip

    Would love to get a copy of that EA too. Maybe you could post it here when you get it.

    Indicator for EA

    Here is the indicator that I'm going to base the ea on... feel free to back test and post your results, I've only started back testing tonight, so far with EURUSD 5M over the past 7 months it seems to be about 2:1 win/loss ratio with B = SL and C = TP. With around 35 trades in that period. Some of those losing trades can be trimmed further with minswing variable being changed.

    Other testing, period last 13 months:

    EURUSD 30M - 3 Winning Trades.
    USDCHF 30M - 4 winning trades

    I've also attached an ea for backtesting, it does nothing but you need it too run something in the strategy tester.

    The indicator will show a green or red arrow depicting trade entry on the chart.

    Hi joswald, the one 2 one EA is fantastic as it also help to locate the balance point on the waves. it can be used to target and cross target waves . i feel its mostly 50% center of the wave which goes to 100% and if you draw a line through the center from a previous wave gives you where the next wave will stall. please read price reversal pdfs on the forum nice work. cheers.

    one2one

    Joswald

    The one2one pattern has become one of my favorites, it helps with entries /exits, when to stay out of trades or when harmonic legs are undevelopment.

    All the best of luck to you, i look forward to the test.

    Does Bryce G. have a written set of rules for the pattern ?

    Hi Joswald, Great idea. Would like to test EA when you are ready. AUD seems to work well during Asian Session. Am awake then.

    Hi Joswald,
    I'd be happy to run your ABCDslim on demo, but I pasted it into my indicator folder tried compiling it and nothing happened; nothing on the chart. Any ideas?


    Regards,


    Mike

    Ah, sorry....just worked out that I need to put everything to true! DOH!
