DislikedImpulse Affects Momentum
Any moving object can have momentum. This is because momentum is mass in motion. The way we determine an object's momentum is fairly straightforward. Momentum is the object's mass times its velocity, or, in equation form, p=mv, where p is momentum, m is mass in kilograms, and v is velocity in meters per second. Momentum is proportional to both mass and velocity, meaning that a change in one will cause the same amount of change in the other. So if you increase an object's mass, you also increase its momentum. The same is true for velocity: increase or decrease the object's speed, and you increase or decrease its momentum by the same amount.
But usually it's the object's velocity that changes instead of its mass, right? You may remember that a change in velocity means the object is accelerating. You may also remember that acceleration is caused by a force and that the greater the force, the greater the acceleration. Therefore, the greater the acceleration, the greater the momentum!
Force is an important factor, but time also counts. Specifically, when we are interested in knowing how long the force acts. For example, if you push a box across the floor for just a few seconds, the time interval is very short. But if you push a box across the floor and you do so with the same force as before, but this time for several minutes, you've increased the amount of time the force acts. This longer time interval leads to a greater change in momentum. This change in momentum is called impulse, and it describes the quantity that we just saw: the force times the time interval it acts over. The greater the impulse, the greater the change in momentum. To change the impulse, you can either change the amount of force, or you can change the time interval in which that force acts. In equation form, we can write this relationship between impulse and momentum asAttached Image
The Greek letter delta means 'change in,' and we read this equation as force times the time interval equals the change in mass times velocity. Be careful not to read this as 'force times time equals mass times velocity' because now you're saying that 'impulse equals momentum.' It's important to remember that impulse is a change in momentum, not the momentum itself.
Changing Time and Force
If you want a large increase in momentum, you need to exert a large force over a long time period. When you quickly shove the box, it doesn't move very quickly across the floor, but if you push it with that same force for a long period of time, you can move it all the way across the room. This is because you've increased the time variable on the left side of the equation. When an object is brought to rest, its momentum also changes, but now it decreases instead of increases. Time is especially important in this situation because a longer time interval means less force acts on the object to result in the same change in momentum.
Say for example that a stunt double jumped from a 10-story window during an action scene. Does she want to land on the sidewalk, which is very hard, or does she want to land on a soft cushion? She definitely wants to land on the soft cushion because this cushioning will increase the time of her impact and decrease the force on her as she lands. In either case, her impulse, or her change in momentum, is exactly the same because in either case, she goes from moving to a state of rest. The difference is that the change occurs over a different time period and with a different amount of force.

DislikedThe standard deviation is a measure of how much a dataset differs from its mean; it tells us how dispersed the data are. A dataset thatís pretty much clumped around a single point would have a small standard deviation, while a dataset thatís all over the map would have a large standard deviation.
Given a sample the standard deviation is defined as the square root of the variance
There is always a need to measure if the market is "quiet" or it is volatile. One of the possible ways is to use standard deviations, but the issue is simple: we do not have some levels that could help us find out if the market is in a state of lower or higher volatility. This feature is attempting to do that :
This is not a directional feature. It should be used for volatility detection, not trend assessment - for that, you have to use some other indicator and then check this one if the market volatility conditions are those that you expect

If everything went fine... then you've quickly downloaded all the broker's M1 data on your currency pair that the broker is going to let you have, much faster than holding down the home or page-up key for minutes and minutes to download even fewer data. Now, you may continue with the rest of the time frames. But, don't forget to delete (it depends on the MT4 server set up by your broker) the year 1970 dummy tick data after it downloads more history and/or check if after deletion it will revert back to a default max of 2048 history size otherwise add 1970 once again.
