Hi Ola,

This question has been repeated a few times in the forum. All you have to do is right click download the file to your desktop and move it (or directly to) to the installation folder then find folder experts->indicators and move the file in there. Restart your MT4 platform and find under custom indicators.

Hi Ola,

Right click, save link as... in Firefox.
Right click, save file as... in Internet explorer.

Another method: copy the code that you see and paste it into .txt file.
Save the file and then rename it to indicator_name.mq4
You're ready to go.

If nothing works, email me

Include the name of the file and a link to the page where you saw it and I will send a copy to you.



After testing for a few days I realize mostly M30 and H1 give you decent breakouts, and I would risk going in immediately. For M5 and M15 I would pair with EMA9 + MACD for double confirmation.

hi alex! Yup.. m30 n h1 gives a better breakout result. so far, I am testing this with gu and eu.. what's your best pair? would appreciate if you could attach a picture to explain your method for m5 and m15? thanks in advance!


Hi Ladyheart,

I don't have the screen shot anymore as the Trendlines keep changing on screen. What you can do is is to use this Tom Denmark trendlines custom indicator on your M5 and M15 charts, and on breakout on these timeframes, wait for further confirmation from these indicators mentioned in this strategy: (talking about 9ema and MACD in particular).

Good Luck!

This system suffers from false signals just as any other strategy. Quite a few trendline violations do not end up in breakouts (especially Monday morning Asian hours). It's up to the trader to decide whether to get in or not.
