Daily Breakout Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator
The Daily Breakout forex indicator for Metatrader 4 is just excellent to trade daily breakout signals.
The indicator draws a daily gray colored box that can be traded easily, either to the upside (buy signal) or downside (sell signal).
I recommend to attach the indicator to the hourly or 4-hour trading chart for best view.
How it works
When price exceeds the previous day high price, this would create a buy order.
When price exceeds the previous day low price, this would create a sell order.
Moreover, it’s also easy to discover the trend of a currency pair.
The trend is up when at least 5 consecutive daily boxes display higher highs and higher lows.
The trend is down when at least 5 consecutive daily boxes display lower highs and lower lows.
