Have you resolved this?

Have you tried adjusting the buy level too?

The problem in your setings is that buy level is set to 4.

This causes the strategy to only buy when:
- price is 4% lower than the lowest EMA (which will happen seldomly!)
- AND price is 4% below the lower bollinger band (as set in LOW_BB)

Drastically decrease buy level (can even be negative, if you want to ignore EMA) should make your strategy behave as your expected.

If you want to use bb as buy method, and want to ignore EMA completely for buying, set "BUY_LEVEL" to -99
