How to read Breakout_PANCA_EAGLE indicator signals

The indicator draws colored boxes:

Red box - stretches form the beginning to the end of the breakout zone. This is a no trading zone. Traders have to wait till the red box ends.

Green line - BoxBreakout Offset zone - creates a green buffer above and below the breakout zone. This buffer serves as a filter for:

breakout line tests, noise around the breakout line and it prepares traders to trade.

Filtering breakout directions with Breakot_PANCA_EAGLE

PANCA_EAGLE can be used in combination with other indicators mainly for filtering the direction of the breakout.

Among such trend indicators is BBands_Stop_v1.mq4, which is used for identifying trends.

The rule of using BBands_Stop with PANCA_EAGLE suggested that traders look to take breakouts with PANCA_EAGLE signals only if the direction of the breakout agrees with the trend direction shown by the BBands_Stop indicator. 

However, it is not the ultimate tool. There are many other trend indicators that can be used instead of the BBands_Stop, even a simple Parabolic SAR indicator.
