I got many requests for a Breakout script and here it's. This script searches the breakouts/breakdowns and draw square if there is one.
"Period" is used to find
"Max Breakout Length" is the maximum length to search breakouts
"Threshold Rate %" is channel width of the breakout area. calculated using highest/lowest of last 300 bars.
"Minimum Number of Tests" is the minimum number of tests that the Price tried to break the
and some options for coloring and linestyle
Lets see some examples:
in this example "Minimum Number of Tests" is 2 so the Price must have tested to break 2 times and then it breaks it as seen in the screenshot:
in following example Threshold rate is %10, so the channel width is very big:
as you can see in followinf screenshot you can choose different colors and line styles:
Alerts added ;)
