WHL breakout

"WHL breakout"  is a fully automated EA , as it's name says, based on a breakout strategy.

Default input parameters are optimized for EURUSD pair and h1 timeframe

Signal: https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/570337


  • The Risk parameter is 5% by default. This is the absolute maximum what I recommend. If you want more safety and lower drawdowns, decrease this parameter.

Main features

  • The software operate with stop orders, placing them to nearby support and resistance levels
  • Every trade has a stop loss and take profit level
  • No martingale, grid or other risky strategy included
  • Backtested with 99,9% modelling quality (tick data suite v2)


  • StopLoss - stop loss level in points.
  • TakeProfit - take profit level in points
  • Lot - fixed lot size on every trade
  • Risk - percentage of actual equity to risk on a single trade. Lot size increases with account equity. Set zero here to use fixed lot size.
  • Slippage - maximum slippage alloved on a trade
  • Confirmation - minimum number of candles needed to confirm a support/resistance level. A level is confirmed if at least the last x candle is above/below it.
  • Offset - place the orders higher or lower than the calculated support/resistance level. The parameter is in points.
  • Magic_Num - magic number
  • comment - order comment
  • FourDigitBroker - Set true here if you are using a 4 digit broker. Default setting is false.
  • BreakEven - Turn the breakeven function on/off.
  • BreakEven_points - Modify the stop loss level to breakeven when the price moved x point to the right direction.

Magnificent EA, the trades in the backtest are identical to the real account. 100% recommendable.

This is a very good EA for long term trading. The back test results since 2003 are in line with live trading; The trading frequency is about 3-6 trades per month. Also ideal for use in a portfolio. For those who are looking for fast money, it is the wrong EA, for traders who plan long term, just right! Such people, who actually manage to destroy 20% of their deposit with 3 trades, should play better with dice.

Supportive author and interesting EA....

A normal strategy, but now it is not at all relevant, long-term price movements in the channel make it completely ineffective. I do not believe that it will work in the future, despite of everything volatility on forex falls every year.

3 operations SL hit, 20% deposit loss, maybe need more adjust or maybe it's just a bad time, backtest are not always accurate

so far no loss and no profit only ordres there will be cancel, and the ordres are so far from the marked, something is wrong here

I would give 100 stars for Laszlo Kadlok. His support is very fast and his replies are nice evertime you ask him (even with dumbest questions)

Right now I am running WHL on live for about two weeks. Until now there are no trades, only one sell stop, one buy stop and some cancelled orders. But this seems to be normal for this EA and everything is alright with that. I will update with stars when there were the first trades. If it will be only half as good as in the backtests I will be fully satisfied.

I' m using WHL for about 6 weeks in real account at the moment, up to almost 50% in profit with steady profit and almost no DD! WHL is a most in any EA portefolio! 5 stars for sure! Little update, for peole who want more trade, use it on m15 chart too, same settings, I'm running it live with the h1 chart 1% risk by chart, and the result are really good!

I used it on real account. This EA spends its time placing buy and sell stop orders too far from the price, which cancel each other out pretty quickly so that it only execute very rarely. In almost 3 weeks of use, only 3 trades are passed and my balance is negative. I will not rent this EA again.

Hello:) I will test the EA now... I will update my review after some weeks

I am using EA for two weeks in live account and here is my conclusion:

- back test exactly the same as real performance. you can trust back test 100% so and optimization

- very stable, back tested for up to 4 years with same results and performance

- very user friendly, has only few settings which are understandable and easy to optimize (unlike others EA with dozens of settings only author can understand)

- not broker sensitive and execution time sensitive. Can be used with any broker including US

- recovers loss trade by next positive trade. Don't have to wait weeks or months to recover bad trade

- can be set up for high MM percent with grater results and still will be relatively safe

I would suggest to optimize it for each broker, settings could be slight different from default

So far the best EA I used or tested. Definitely 5 stars.

Version 1.8 2019.02.18
A lot of people asked me to add breakeven function to the expert. This is the reason why I upload this new version.
Unfortunately based on the tests I made, it seems that it only decreases the performance of the EA.
The function is disabled by default. I recommend this value.

New parameters:
BreakEven = false
BreakEven_points = 160
Version 1.7 2018.12.12
EA's trend filtering mechanism is redesigned. Hereafter it also supports brokers with non standard New York close chart.
Version 1.6 2018.11.26
Problems related to 4 digit brokers fixed.
New input parameter: "FourDigitBroker" . If you have 4 digit broker set this to "true" (false by default).
Version 1.5 2018.11.19
Version 1.4 2018.11.11
Version 1.3 2018.11.08
Better working along with other EAs. If the account equity changes while pendig orders are opened, the program calculates the new lot size based on the money management settings, and replace the orders.
Version 1.2 2018.10.23
Additional input parameters:

Magic_Num - magic number
comment - order comment
Version 1.1 2018.10.22
