*** Updated - FractalBreak Indicator free

by NiLo in category Trend at 03/07/2020

This indicator provides an overview of both the last bear and bull fractal. The indicator shows whether the fractal in question is broken and is subsequently followed by a retest. Retesting the price level of a bear fractal after a break is a signal to go short. Conversely, a retest in the price level of a bull fractal after a break is a signal to go long.

Always use appropriate risk management!!
Use at your own risk!!

Would you be so kind to give a thumbs up if you download this indicator?
That will keep me motivated to create more of these awesome indicators.
Thank you!

Pretty cool. Try, when a fractal breaks, for eg. a bullish fractal breaks.. then it sometimes (usually) pulls back, creating another bullish fractal, enter short on completion of that fractal. sl behind previous bearish fractal. https://gyazo.com/b2d404a39d86e6bb975e236796d93e87

bạn có phiên bản trải nghiệm chứ

supreme3010 - September 22, 2020 @ 01:08

@Nilo, how can we contact you to clarify some questions?

I am thinking to get that bundle you have.

What kind of notification you included? Email or TG or both ?

Any chance you can provide some time trial or trial on demo account to give some forward testing. I don't trust the pure backtesting thing.


Anyone has experience or results with it?

NiLo - November 23, 2020 @ 16:42

@Supreme3010, unfortunately there is no notification mechanism on the messages I receive here in the cTrader platform, so I'm sorry for the late response. The notifications in the autotrading bot are email based. That is currently the only method of notifications that is supported by cTrader.
