VARS: NMPC(0), NMPE(0), NMPT(0), TRIGGER(0);

{*1.}
IF NEWMARKETPARADIGM(PRICE, LENGTH, STDDEVUP, STDDEVDN) = 1 THEN
NMPC = NMPC + 1
ELSE
NMPC = 0; {CONTRACTION PHASE}

IF NEWMARKETPARADIGM(PRICE, LENGTH, STDDEVUP, STDDEVDN) = 2 THEN
NMPE = NMPE + 1
ELSE
NMPE = 0; {EXPANSION PHASE}

IF NEWMARKETPARADIGM(PRICE, LENGTH, STDDEVUP, STDDEVDN) = 3 THEN
NMPT = 1
ELSE
NMPT = 0; {TRANSITION PHASE}
{REVERSAL TRADERS WILL BE USING THIS PHASE, SO I LEFT IT IN, ALTHOUGH I DON'T USE IT.
NO COUNTER IS IMPLEMENTED, BUT ONE COULD CERTAINLY  DO THAT -- WD}

{*2.}
CONDITION1 = NMPE > 1; {2 CONSECUTIVE NMPE RANGES QUALIFY AS AN EXPANSION PHASE. -- WD}

IF CONDITION1 THEN BEGIN
TRIGGER = 1;
END;

{*3.}
IF TRIGGER = 1 THEN BEGIN
BUY HIGHEST(HIGH, 10) + 1 POINT STOP;
SELL LOWEST(LOW, 10) + 1 POINT STOP;
