This EA has the following conditions:
Place a buy order on (sell order is the reverse).
200-day moving average exceeds the previous day's closing price
The average foot is reversed from bullish to bearish (when the average foot changes from blue (bullish) to red (bearish) in the image example)
This entry logic is only confirmed when a new candlestick is created.
Set the take profit and stop loss with parameters. ATR stop and trailing stop can also be used.
