ADDED MAY 20, 2016:

Let me see if I can address areas of confusion.

First, read the rules.
Do not add anything to the rules.
Do not subtracted anything from the rules.
Do not modify the rules.
Read the rules, again.

The first line: Place a line at the highest H1 open and lowest H1 open for the current day.
Current day means today according to your broker.
My broker starts a new day at 5PM NY time which means when it is 5PM, I have to move the lines.

The second line: Sell short at the highest H1 open after price goes up through it and comes back down.
Price has to GO UP FIRST.
Price has to GO ABOVE the highest H1 open.
AFTER, price has risen above the highest H1 open, THEN AND ONLY THEN, do you enter a short trade when price falls back down to the highest H1 open.

The third line: Buy at the lowest H1 open after price goes down through it and comes back up.
Price has to GO DOWN FIRST.
Price has to GO BELOW the lowest H1 open.
AFTER, price has dropped below the lowest H1 open, THEN AND ONLY THEN, do you enter a long trade when price rises back up to the lowest H1 open.

The most difficult thing about this method is you have to WAIT.
For many traders, waiting does not come naturally.
Failure to wait, will in most cases, result in losses.
I suggest you literally sit on your hands while you wait to avoid entering a trade too soon.

There is no “trick” to this method.
No gimmicks.

Let me suggest at the end of the trading day you post your marked up charts here.
We can see how many days price closes above the highest H1 open and below the lowest H1 open.
Zero will mean there would not have been a loss when the rules were followed.

Many traders ask how I know when the highest open and lowest open occur during the day because the next bar may make a new high/low.
I do not know.
No one knows.
What we know, from the previous count, is the close is usually below the highest H1 open and above the lowest H1 open.
This is our “edge”.
This is what allows us to bank pips on a daily basis.

ADDED MAY 27, 2016:

This may help those who are trigger happy to wait:

M15 bar must open below the lowest H1 open before you can enter.

M15 bar must open above the highest H1 open before you can enter.

Price will be moving in your direction when you enter the trade.

Please do not discuss or mention EAs in this thread.
EAs are not welcome here.

EAs distract from the method.
You have been warned.

If you want to post code in this thread post the MQ4 files.
Posting only EX4 files is not welcome.

You may wonder why.
EX4 files could contain something harmful.
MQ4 files are compiled on your computer so you can feel relatively safe.
If the coder “vanishes” then the code can not be updated if/when it fails and the code can not be improved or enhanced.
Who wants to be a the mercy of some unseen coder?
