- E - a numerical expression.

- The value of A was less than the value of B on the bar immediately preceding the current bar
- The values of A and B were equal for a consecutive sequence of one or more bars immediately preceding the current bar and the value of A was less than the value of B on the bar immediately preceding this sequence of bars.
