Bollinger Bands Breakout Alert Indicator for MT4 and MT5

The Bollinger Bands indicator is very well known by traders. Is one of the indicators always available in the MetaTrader 4 platform, however, there is an issue. MetaTrader 4/5 doesn't have any function to alert the trader about a breakout. This is why we created the Bollinger Bands Breakout Alert Indicator for MT4/MT5.

What Is Bollinger Bands Breakout Alert Indicator for MetaTrader

Many traders rely on the Bollinger Bands as a tool to confirm entry and exit signals. Also Many strategies are based on Bollinger Bands breakouts, bounces and so on.

The problem with MetaTrader is that it doesn't have a system to alert the trader when a breakout of the Bollinger Bands happens.

To fill this gap I created the Bollinger Bands Breakout Alert Indicator for MT4 (and MT5). This indicator is like a plain Bollinger Bands indicator but including a notification system. You can be alerted via alert on screen, email, and mobile app if there is a breakout of the Bollinger Bands.

The Bollinger Bands Alert Indicator can notify you in case of a price break out or when the price returns in the bands after a breakout.

Bollinger Bands Breakout Alert Indicator Parameters

The Bollinger Bands Breakout Alert Indicator for MT4/MT5 has very few parameters so that it can be useful as well as easy to use.

The only parameters to set are the basic settings for the Bollinger Bands and how you would like to be notified. The notification happens only once per candle in case the breakout happens.

Forex trading bears intrinsic risks of loss. You must understand that Forex trading, while potentially profitable, can make you lose your money. Never trade with the money that you cannot afford to lose! Trading with leverage can wipe your account even faster.

CFDs are leveraged products and as such loses may be more than the initial invested capital. Trading in CFDs carry a high level of risk thus may not be appropriate for all investors.
