Project 42 Free

Project 42 – breakout of the trend lines and significant price levels indicates the appearance of participants with distinct preference towards buying or selling on the market. At such moments, the breakout strategies generate a trade signal and help in entering the market in the direction of large volumes. And then a part of the new trend's profit can be certainly taken. These are the standard trading systems tested by trading on any instruments over dozens of years. The main idea – if the price has been in a range for a long time, then there will certainly be a moment of powerful market decision and a breakout in a certain direction is to take place.

Breakout trading systems are considered to be the simplest, but their efficiency usually does not exceed standard statistics. The accuracy of determining the support/resistance levels is of utmost importance for them, as well as the filtering of so-called "false" breakouts. In order to catch a moment of a valid breakout, it is necessary to see the actual trend clearly, and preferably – on multiple timeframes. This is why breakout strategies are especially profitable when working on instruments with medium volatility.

When there is a support level breakdown or a resistance level breakout, a strong movement impulse occurs in the direction of the breakthrough, which allows you to make profit from the powerful movements of the price with a small risk. Support and resistance levels are formed on any timeframes.

The EA operation algorithm is quite complex, as it evaluates all breakout factors and uses them as the basis for making decisions on opening the corresponding deals.

Free version limitations: The minimum fixed lot of 0.01 is used.

The EA is optimized to run on EURUSD M30 and GBPUSD M30.

Ранние версии еще как-то работали, последние льют безбожно.

Mediocre performance on my system. Noticed new version but nothing really new just fewer restrictions but I suppose logic is the same so not even worth my time to update ... test results will remain similar with same logic. People are gradually learning back tests from strategy tester are next to worthless. Appreciate the free version to test but needs more work for me to spend any amount of money on it.

Update: I originally tried with my regular broker and then after recent update I decided to try with IC Markets but had no measurable improvement in performance ... still mediocre ... actually more negative trades than positive ... I wouldn't pay $4 dollars for this much less $4000.

This EA works great if you run it under the right conditions. Like every scalper it requires a fast order execution and a low spread. Just make sure you have such trading conditions and you will be happy.
