Channel Breakout Scalper EA MT5

This EA creates a channel based on the number of history candles you specify. EA draws high and low lines on these channels, so it is easier to figure out what EA "sees." A channel is updated with every new candle, so it's always up to date. The breakout scalping strategy is quite simple: if the upper level has been crossed from below to above, then buy; if the lower level has been crossed from above to below, then sell. EA also has a trailing stop and breakeven, which may help you protect your earned profit.

This EA may be used for strategies like breakout levels, support and resistance levels, the previous day's highest and lowest prices, news trading, and many others.

Strategy tester: EA works exactly the same in the strategy tester, so you're able to test and trade your strategy much faster and find out the best settings and other details much faster.

EA has the most used features; we don't want to add too much stuff to the original EA. So we offer custom updates for any of our EAs. You can easily order a custom update and adapt this EA to your specific needs. Contact us, and we will add some basic features for free after your purchase.

After EA has been attached to the chart, it instantly finds the levels and waits for them to be crossed.
