Using indicator in trading

We open a buy trade if the Itrend Old indicator has drawn only a blue bar and a sell trade – if only a red one. We close all positions, if the indicator remains empty, as well as when both colors are displayed at once, we close the entire position, or only a part of it. If the indicator has changed from one color to another, then reverse the current position if it is open.
