I am testing the updated ea now.

Below parameters are not related to the duration. Below parameters are conditions for the entry.

– add parameter: [on/off]only if previous candle is >200 percentage bigger than previous [4] candles
– add parameter: [200] percentage
– add parameter: [4] candles

– add parameter: [on/off]only if previous candle lower wick >3 pips
– add parameter: [3] pips

– add parameter: [on/off]only if previous candle lower wick is >150% bigger than upper wick
– add parameter: [150] percentage

Conclusion:
So it means: if this parameter is turned on “only if previous candle lower wick >3 pips”
then the EA only opens a trade at candle close if previous candle wick is bigger than 3 pips. Every trade entry must be bigger than 3 pips wick, otherwise EA will not open the trade and waits for a new ‘candle close’ until there is a candle wick bigger than 3 pips. So the EA does not open orders every hour, because not all wicks are bigger than 3 pips.

The EA will only open an order if:
– the candle wick is bigger than 3 pips.

Same with 150 percentage and 200 times bigger.
The EA will only open an order if:
previous candle is >200% bigger than previous [4] candles

The EA will only open an order if:
if previous candle lower wick is >150% bigger than upper wick

1. reverse logic
2. trade on swing: [on/off]
2a1. only trade [5] candles after previous higher high [on/off]
2a2. only trade [5] candles after previous lower high [on/off]
2a3. *only trade [5] candles after previous lower low [on/off]
2a4. *only trade [5] candles after previous higher low [on/off]
2b. [5] candles (start trading from 5 candles after swing)
2c. duration: for [8] following candles (so ‘duration’ (child) belongs to ‘trade swing’ (parent)) (stop trading 8 candles after [5] candles after swing)
