Disliked1. Just ignore it. As it is all about the trend.
2. No you don't, the model is trend following and from the looks of the screen shot i would say it is from a ranging market. So wrong market condition to try it in.
If you want another filter try this one. go to daily or weekly chart. look at what direction the market is headed and only take trades in that direction.
well thats my 2 pips
