New article Limitations and Verifications in Expert Advisors is published:

Is it allowed to trade this symbol on Monday? Is there enough money to open position? How big is the loss if Stop Loss triggers? How to limit the number of pending orders? Was the trade operation executed at the current bar or at the previous one? If a trade robot cannot perform this kind of verifications, then any trade strategy can turn into a losing one. This article shows the examples of verifications that are useful in any Expert Advisor.

Due to changes in MQL5, now the maximal overall volume allowed for one symbol can be obtained as following:
