Range Breakout Patterns Scanner

This price action indicator automates the detection and trade analysis of range breakout patterns (symmetrical triangle, ascending triangle, descending triangle, pennant and rectangle/horizontal channel; which are formed when price action is confined in a range) and generates high probability trade signals with precise analytical entry, stop loss and take profit levels.

This indicator is a complete "set and forget" trade signal generator for price action technical analysts and traders! The pattern recognition and signal analysis principle is based on a predictive algorithm and statistical methods that optimize gains and mitigate risk.

Price action can form the basis of successful trading strategies for all types of trader because it looks at the interaction of supply and demand over time. This indicator's strategy therefore works exactly the same for all timeframes and financial market (forex, stocks, indices, commodities etc) instruments that it is attached to on the MetaTrader 4 platform. However, it performs better during active market periods of the instrument.

  • Scalping traders: attach to 1/5 mins timeframe.
  • Day traders: attach to 15 mins/1 hr timeframe.
  • Swing traders: attach to 4 hrs/daily timeframe.
  • Longer-term position traders: attach to weekly/monthly timeframe.

The demo version of this indicator can be downloaded here for real-time testing.

Key points

  • This indicator generates high take profit to Stop Loss pips trade signals (which can be set to a minimum of 1:1) with entry, stop loss and profit levels and notifies through alerts and push notifications when any of these levels are reached.
