Active Lines for MT4

Active Lines - a powerful professional tool for operations with lines on charts. Active Lines provides a wide range of actions for events when the price crosses lines. For example: notify, open/modify/close a position, place/remove pending orders. With Active Lines you can assign several tasks to one line, for each of which you can set individual trigger conditions, as well as conditions for re-activations and the number of possible activations.

Active Lines helps you easily organize various trading strategies connected with trendlines, support and resistance lines. For example, for trading inside a channel, trading in a triangle, grid of orders, etc.

Attaching a task to a line is easy - press the left mouse button on the line and hold it until a window appears, where you can set/modify/check tasks. Line colors and names do not matter for Active Lines.


  • The intuitive interface of the program. Two separate windows:
    • The list of all lines with tasks;
    • All tasks for a separate line. Windows can be moved and hidden.
  • Can work with 3 types of lines:
    • Horizontal line;
    • Trendline;
    • Fibo retracement.
  • 2 types of events: break through and rollback to the line.
  • 11 main actions for the task:
    • Alert - a sound alert, a message on the screen, an email, push-notification, switch to the chart on top of all other charts;
    • Buy, Sell - sending an appropriate market order with specified Stop Loss and Take Profit, as well as a unique identifier to be used in subsequent tasks to modify and/or close positions;
    • Close - closing a position, partial closing, part to close can be specified as a percentage;
    • Modify - modifying Stop Loss and/or Take Profit of an open position;
    • Buy Stop, Buy Limit, Sell Stop, Sell Limit - placing pending orders, a separate identifier can be set to each order to be used when deleting orders;
    • Delete Orders - deleting pending orders;
    • Stop Tasks - canceling tasks on a specific line. This action allows to cancel tasks of a line if another line is crossed.
  • Up to 15 tasks for one line. Tasks are executed sequentially, from left to right, as they are located in the tasks window. Tasks can be moved dragged relative to each other to set them in the right order.
  • Task re-activation.
  • A line can be deleted after all tasks are completed. Available only for horizontal and trend lines.
  • Most of parameters in tasks are set by simple drag-n-drop of additional lines which appear when you edit a task.
  • Each task has its individual log.
  • Line can be set as segments to limit the activity of tasks in time.
  • The number of lines with tasks is not limited.
  • Lines with active tasks are marked with an animated locator icon.
  • "Highlighting" of lines.
  • You can save and upload sets of tasks as templates. Templates are saved in files with the ".tsk" extension. The templates can be saved in both the local terminal folder and in the shared folder available to all the terminals on the computer.
  • Protection against accidental events - disabling tasks if line is moved close to the price.
  • You can limit the volume of an opened position and the number of placed orders in one direction.
  • Support of software restart: tasks are not lost during program/terminal restart.
  • Interactive help on task parameters.
Note: Active Lines does not work in the terminal tester. To see how the program works, please use the free version Active Lines DEMO.

I bought the software last week. Very good software, I recommend everyone to use. It will be great if you add the 2 events called "BUY ON CANDLE CLOSE" and "SELL ON CANDLE CLOSE"

The best Expert Advisor I have bought/seen so far!

Thank you very much Yury!

It is a very good tool. Very logical, visual, user friendly. I recommend "start task" option to trigger stop loss orders instead of limit orders.

BTW - "order commenting" is exactly what I need.

Simply worth the money.

I rented this EA and it worked perfectly. However, this wasn't good for the types of trades I like to take. Pretty good EA.

Amazing product and amazing author! Very responsive and helpful. This tool has enabled me to catch bounces off trend lines and I'm grateful for the author sharing this tool, it should be sold for a lot more!

Very userful utility. i used to always wonder if there is a way to place orders after touching support or resistance lines with a clear buffer of price action as confirmation.

finally i found it here,
