Timebox Breakout Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

The Timebox Breakout Mt4 indicator draws a box that marks the daily high and low price.

The daily box presents an easy way to trade daily buy and sell breakout signals.

A buy breakout signal occurs when the current price rises above the previous day high price.

A sell breakout signal occurs when the current price falls below the previous day low price.

The indicator draws 3 different types of colored boxes:

  • Green box: the close price is higher that the open price (bullish)
  • Red box: the close price is lower than the open price (bearish)
  • Yellow box: this box has a Doji single chart pattern inside. This could indicate a possible trend reversal.
