ADX | DMI Trend Strategy

This strategy takes the ADX Indicator I wrote and applies it to a strategy for back testing purposes.

I've also applied a date filter so you can back test specific date ranges and a moving average filter so you can choose whether to filter your longs/shorts based on a moving average.
Release Notes: Added a checkbox option to disable short trades if a long-only strategy is desired and cleaned up the code a bit.
Release Notes: Added the ability to filter the signals based on volume compared to average volume. The theory is that you'd only take trades that had abnormal volume. You can turn this on or off with a checkbox to see the results.
Release Notes: Added the ability to select different kinds of volume filtering. The current bar's volume must be greater than
1) Average Volume * some user defined multiplier (use this if you want to track above average volume as a filter)
2) Manually input level for volume (use this if you want to wait for a specific volume threshold)
3) The greater of the manual level AND the average volume * multiplier
Release Notes: Added the ability to set a protective stop based on a trailing ATR.
Release Notes: For manual volume input, set increments to 1000.
Release Notes: Added alerts for Long, Short, and Sell/Cover (when ADX starts turning down).
Release Notes: Updates to add parity to the ADX Study in terms of adding separate lookback periods for entry and exit for the slope of the ADX.
Added Parabolic SAR as an alternate exit signal. If you select both ATR and SAR as an exit option, it will pick whichever comes first.
