This Robot detects the impulse bar or candle and initiate an order. This is the best way to know where the market is going. 

Decide how many pips should an impulse be. To know this value, open an ATR indicator. In this example of 1 month data of GBPUSD 1Hr, the market moves around during low volatility 20-30 pips estimate. We take 20 pips as our risk/stoploss. We input 85pips (estimated average) as our trigger in Range. When robot detects an 85 pips move bar/candle, it will trigger. As a rule of risk management, reward should be greater than risk. Therefore, Take profit is 20 x 5 = 100pips.

Please vote to my suggestion to increase the chances of implementation above. Thanks.
