Candle Pattern is currently found on the MQL5 marketplace under the Experts category. It was first uploaded on the 8th of July 2015 buy its creator Atthias De Polis, it has not had any updates so the EA is still at version 1.0.


Candle Pattern is an expert advisor that can be sued with the MetaTrader 4 trading platform. It is based on Japanese candlestick patters and is able to detect a large number of patterns within the markets. The EA works with three different trend indicators and each one has its own parameters and settings. The indicators help the EA to work out whether the trend will move up or down.

The indicator has a whole host of patterns that it can detect:

Service Cost

The Candle Pattern EA will cost you $709 to purchase it as a one-off payment, there is also the option to rent it, this can be done on a monthly basis and will cost you $30 per month, whichever option you choose, you will get up to 5 activations of the EA. A free demo version is also available but this can only be used with the strategy tester within the MetaTrader 4 platform.


Unfortunately, the Candle Pattern EA does not have any user reviews so we do not know whether people are finding it useful. There are two comments, the developer has not replied to either of them which is not a great sign of the sort of customer support that you may receive. We would suggest trying to get in touch with the developer, so you can be sure that the EA will do what you nee dit to do and also that they are available to offer support should you need it.
