Welcome to the expert advisor Breaking Bad guide.
The name Breaking Bad is taken from a very famous TV show. 
In this article, I will review all the parameter, share some settings files and help you optimize the EA.

This EA does a lot of trades. It works great with a cashback provider.

I have been using a cash back provider for several years. This allows me to get back a part of my commissions in cash, which is interesting to pay my VPS and reinvest. There is no need to create a new account, you can connect your current trading accounts. I had no problems with this provider, I am very happy with the service. It is very well rated on Trustpilot, don’t hesitate to try it.
