Price Breakout Detection Exploration for Amibroker (AFL)
almost 8 years ago
Amibroker (AFL)

2 / 5 (Votes 28)
amibroker, exploration, support, resistance

This is a very good formula developed by Rasheed to show horizontal support and resistance lines to detect price breakouts. The formula was then modified by NWTrader to add exploration for breakouts. I also made some minor modifications to the code to make it look better.

Ok i just joined this site..i made an account for downloading the formulas , ive downloaded them but they are not working at all , i can’t figure it out that why Admin of this site wants to give only formulas , Not any Mq4 file or ex4 file…why the hell hes doing it, plus formulas not working at all..

10. administrator

Mq4 and ex4 have nothing to do with Amibroker at all.

All you need is the formula in plain text to be able to paste it into the Amibroker formula editor which you can get via the "Copy & Paste Friendly’ link.
