    1. Yannick says:

      I have just resent you the download link by mail. Can you please confirm that you have received it?

  7. Christoph Bauer says:

    Hi. Is it possible to enter a trade when the candle closes above or below the zigzag. Not when it touches the price. Only when the candle closes. This should be more correct. Thanks for your reply. Christoph

    1. Yannick says:

      No, since the EA uses only pending orders, it is not possible.

  8. Hani Hinno says:


    I did purchase for big breakout EA,but the status is bending…..any idea?


    1. Yannick says:

      I see that you tried it again few hours later and it has succeeded. The old payment will probably never succeed and it can be ignored.

  9. Hani says:


    I would like to buy the full version for MT4,so the product will be sent by email or another way?
    and what is the best settings to put them on the EA? also i would like to know the most suitable pairs to use with big breakout EA.

      No, only for MT4

  11. jalal says:

    hi why it keep open limit order and delete ..open again and delete 100 times in 1 minute ?

    1. Yannick says:

      Looks like a bug or wrong settings. Please open a new topic in the forum and provide your settings.

  12. clyde says:

    hi yannick good day, it enters a trade for fractal breakout. how about the trail stop. does it have fractals trail stop? or the swing low trail stop? thanks

    1. Yannick says:

      No, it only has the following 4 positions management functions. TrailingStop, BreakEven, Candle Trail and ATR Trail.

  13. Newbie says:


    Can this EA be configured to look at for example the Hi & Lo of 3 candles starting from the broker’s opening time. When there is a body breakout at close, trigger a trade in the breakout direction? The SL is at the Hi of the 3 candles mentioned if it was a sell trade.

    1. Yannick says:

      It only uses a simple breakout at the high/low price +/- a fixed padding.

  14. Marcelo Rabelo says:

    I did the backtest on several pairs running on H1. 2 years backtest. I found 6 very profitable pairs: EUR-GBP / GBP-CHF / GOLD / CAD-JPY / EUR-NZD / NZD-JPY.
    I used the following settings:
    1) Strategy: ZIGZAG Breakout
    2) Use Filter ZigZag: True
    3) Use BollingerBand Trend Filter: True
    4) Use MA Trend Filter: True
    5) Use TrailingStop: True *
    TrailingStop: 62 *
    When toTrail: 1 *

    I await suggestions from other users of other configurations and positive pairs.
    All other pairs (I tested more than 30) were negative or poorly positive with these settings.

    Very good EA, but you have to find the right pairs with the right settings.

    Thank you.

    1. Yannick says:

      Thanks for your settings. Could you please uploaded the in the forum?

    2. Roman Gazdík says:


      Do you use full licence on testing, or demo?
      What timeframe is the best?

      Thank you for sharing your settings.

    3. evagrow says:

      Dear Marcelo,
      Please provide details on your suggestion, it seems quite vague.
      Do you use SL or TP, or just TSl alone??
      How about filter settings, same as default?
      Lets be clear and share the good ideas!
      Also results would be nice to show.
      Thanks a lot

  15. panya says:

    1. Your EA required a minimum deposit? or which size of account is suitable.
    2. The full version can adjust the lot size (such as 0.01 or 0.05 etc…)

    1. Yannick says:

      There is no required minimum.
      It works with all lot sizes.

      1. Yugga says:

        hi Yannick,

        i have installed the demo, just a question, the pending order seems to be disappearing within 10 seconds, and appearing back, This is going on and on . do i need to do any other setting?

        1. Yannick says:

          Can you open a new topic in the forum and post your settings?

  16. Kenny says:

    Hello Yannick, how often do i need to redownload the EA, how long is the experatrion date?

    1. Yannick says:

      One a year.

  17. Ricardo Cambon says:

    Hi Yannick,
    I really like this robot and I’m trying it in basic, with an idea of ​​buying the Pro. But I wanted to ask you, does any of the configuration functions allow you to place the pending purchase / sale order, a certain number of pips before reaching the support or resistance?

    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, use the padding options for this.

  18. William Tan says:

    Hi Yannick,

    I just bought and really like the concept of this EA. May I know if I can have or purchase the source code for this EA?


    1. Yannick says:

      Unfortunately, I do not provide the source code.

  19. Danny Vermeylen says:

    Does this expert advisor (Big Breakout) interfere with other open positions on the chart ?

    1. Yannick says:

      No, the EA uses a unique magicNumber as an identifier.

  20. Jan Resch says:

    Hi Yannick!
    Great EA you programmed there! I purchased the full version and am having trouble with the martingale function. It will only increase the next buy/sell stop, yet if it is not triggered and deleted, it will return to the original lot size. Is it not supposed to keep the increased lot size until the next order is opened?

    1. Yannick says:

      Using a martingale strategy with an EA that opens multiple pending orders is not optimal. Imagine a trade (0.1Lot) is open and the EA places a sell pending order (0.01Lot), then the trade gets closed in a loss. Next, it triggers the sell pending order. In a normal martingale scenario, the EA would open the trade with an increased lot size, but since the pending order is already set to 0.01, it will get opened with this lotsize.

  21. Ridwan says:

    Will it be possible to make the EA place pending orders X pips above/below the zigzag high lows where X is a user defined parameter?

    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, this is the Breakout Padding variable.

  22. highlow says:

    hi sorry for my bad english 🙂 have tracking results (myfxbook,fxblue)you demo or real account this ea ? have testet safe and robust(kvality) and profit setings in real time ?

    1. Yannick says:

      No, I do not have any statistics from myfxbook or fxblue.

  23. Phil says:

    Where can you see details about the trades placed by the EA ? I was testing the demo version and it opened two trades of 1 lot each. I thought the demo version was limited to 0.1 lots ?

    1. Yannick says:

      If the minimum lotSize of the symbol you use is 1Lot, the EA will trade 1Lot.You can track the trades based on its MagicNumber with tools like MyFxBook or fxBlue.

      1. Phil says:

        I was trading USD/JPY where the minimum lot size is 0.01. The settings in the EA also say lot size is 0.1 so why did it open 2 trades of 1 lot each ?

        1. Yannick says:

          In this case, please use the forum to share your settings and I will take a closer look.

  24. Man says:

    I am thinking about buying the Big breakout EA but during demo trials it triggers the trade to get in too soon. Which input can I adjust in order get in after the price crossed the previous high/low?

    1. Yannick says:

      Try to add a “Breakout Padding” to the pending order. This will trigger the pending order later.

  25. Marcelo Rodrigues dos Santos says:

    Hello! I’m trying to use the trailing stop with breakeven, but it’s only working the breakenven, is it possible to work with the two tools together?

    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, you should be able to use both. If you need help, please open a new topic in the forum and provide your settings.

  26. Cagdas says:

    Hi, I will like to speak to the developer about this.. As I work in a investment company and like this strategy

    1. Yannick says:

      Please use the contact form to contact me directly.

  27. Mohd Zahirulhaq Hakimi says:

    Hi. I bought your Big Breakout EA. i just need some modification or additional setting on ea.

    After the position closed / take profit, new pending order keep entry. Can you add timer for new pending order? This is important for me.

    1. Yannick says:

      The Big Breakout EA does already have a time filter.

      1. Mohd Zahirulhaq Hakimi says:

        Yes. But for day/time filter. I want timer for position/new pending order. After take profit, i want timer for new pending order set around 1 hour after take profit.

        1. Yannick says:

          True, this is not included into the Big Breakout EA. Unfortunately, at the moment I do not make custom modifications.

  28. zainal sohot says:

    Hi yannick,
    I”m interested with your BigBreakout EA the only thing that can i request a modification when i going to purchase it such as fix pending orders that means no deletion of pending orders.


    1. Yannick says:

      Please send me a mail to discuss what exactly yo need.

  29. Tradingninja says:

    Can you guys post Backtest of this EA? :)?

    1. Yannick says:

      Since the Big Breakout EA is still in development I haven’t made much backtests. But here you’ll find some tests I made 2 months ago.
