Single SMA cross with BB Strategy

This is a light weight code and strategy. I tuned it for NZDUSD on a 15 min chart. NZDUSD is a slow moving low volatility pair. A single SMA cross over + crossing a .9 BB + the single SMA is increasing. I will be manually trading this with alerts and once I have LUA down I will set it free with FXCM and see what it can do on it own.

** I use BB as a means of seeing momentum to continue gaining not as a reversal signal.
