This is another Bollinger Band strategy+indicator in my series of Bollinger based setups. This one is seems to work best with 5min charts and 20 to 30min expiry. The strategy follows variation of a Bollinger band + Moving Averages
reversal strategy, it uses the 2 moving averages mainly to determine market direction.

// Title: "Bollinger Band and Moving Average Retrace Alert v0.1 by JustUncleL".
// Author: JustUncleL
// Date:   24-Jul-2016
// Version: 0.1
// * Description *
//   Brief: This strategy follows variation of a Bollinger band + Moving Average
//          reversal strategy. Includes warning alert conditions.
//          Can be used 5min and higher charts.
//   Full:  Bollinger is standard calculated from SMA (20,2).
//          The strategy is we wait for a candle that breaks and closes outside
//          the Bollinger Bands and then filter Moving average market direction:
//          if market direction  indicated by (180ema) and (365ema) is in the opposite
//          direction  to breaking candle. We place the binary trade on the 
//          following candle in opposite direction of breaking candle.
//          The next must be a candle in oposite direction and this candle must be
//          bigger the the Bollinger break candle, if this child candle not big
//          enough then test 2nd child candle.
//          All candles must be below or above the moving averages, depending on
//          direction.
//          Breakout identified by shapes:
//          The purple diamonds indicate Bollinger breakout conditions satisfied
//          and indicate a possible trade position approaching.
//          The red or green hightlighted triangle indicate child conditions are
//          satisfied and a PUT/CALL trade can be started after the child candle has
//          closed.  Place a binary trade in direction of market for 15min to 45min, 
//          optimal timeframe will depend on market conditions, needs to practised
//          to become experience, if your unsure just use 30min or closest.
//          Note:
//          - Because the strategy relies on Bollinger bounces off the opposite
//          direction band and strict conditions it does not generate many possible 
//          trade positions, but they should be good. Extra good positions
//          will be generated by disabling the option for candle size rule.
//          - The indicators will repaint until candles have completed, so
//          don't trade until after child candle indicator is complete.
//          - If you use the alrm condition, I recommend set your alarm alert
//          to wait for candle closed.
