Yes, but the EA does NOT use the BUY ZONE to trigger the entry.
Does the EA wait for the bar to close or is there intrabar order entry? I don't code EAs so I don't know.
You are trying to prove it DOES NOT work rather than focusing on how to make it work. You'll get what you want either way.
TRO - the EA works exactly the way you recommend (unless I have missed something - then please correct me): wait until 3 candles of the same color are completed. As soon as the next candle moves in the opposite direction and crosses a psychological price level enter the trade. TP 6, SL 20.
Anyway, experience has shown me that the 1st step of any improvement should be detailed analysis of the current status. Thats what I did so far - making a small indicator counting the statistics and writing an EA for backtest. Both (!) have shown that the system in its current form (as as mentioned above) doesn't work!
However, this doesn't mean we can't make it work! I like the idea that after a long run into one direction the market is likely to bounce. But I think we need to add some "rules" for the 5Min timeframes etc. as well to make this a success!
