Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XX): Creating and storing program resources

The article deals with storing data in the program's source code and creating audio and graphical files out of them. When developing an application, we often need audio and images. The MQL language features several methods of using such data.

Building an Expert Advisor using separate modules

When developing indicators, Expert Advisors and scripts, developers often need to create various pieces of code, which are not directly related to the trading strategy. In this article, we consider a way to create Expert Advisors using earlier created blocks, such as trailing, filtering and scheduling code, among others. We will see the benefits of this programming approach.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XIX): Class of library messages

In this article, we will consider the class of displaying text messages. Currently, we have a sufficient number of different text messages. It is time to re-arrange the methods of their storage, display and translation of Russian or English messages to other languages. Besides, it would be good to introduce convenient ways of adding new languages to the library and quickly switching between them.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XVIII): Interactivity of account and any other library objects

The article arranges the work of an account object on a new base object of all library objects, improves the CBaseObj base object and tests setting tracked parameters, as well as receiving events for any library objects.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XVII): Interactivity of library objects

In this article, we are going to finish the development of the base object of all library objects, so that any library object based on it is able to interact with a user. For example, users will be able to set the maximum acceptable size of a spread for opening a position and a price level, upon reaching which an event from a symbol object is sent to the program with the spread or price level-based signal.

Strategy builder based on Merill patterns

In the previous article, we considered application of Merill patterns to various data, such as to a price value on a currency symbol chart and values of standard MetaTrader 5 indicators: ATR, WPR, CCI, RSI, among others. Now, let us try to create a strategy construction set based on Merill patterns.

Library for easy and quick development of MetaTrader programs (part XVI): Symbol collection events

In this article, we will create a new base class of all library objects adding the event functionality to all its descendants and develop the class for tracking symbol collection events based on the new base class. We will also change account and account event classes for developing the new base object functionality.

Developing a cross-platform grid EA (Last part): Diversification as a way to increase profitability

In previous articles within this series, we tried various methods for creating a more or less profitable grid Expert Advisor. Now we will try to increase the EA profitability through diversification. Our ultimate goal is to reach 100% profit per year with the maximum balance drawdown no more than 20%.

MQL5 Cookbook: Trading strategy stress testing using custom symbols

The article considers an approach to stress testing of a trading strategy using custom symbols. A custom symbol class is created for this purpose. This class is used to receive tick data from third-party sources, as well as to change symbol properties. Based on the results of the work done, we will consider several options for changing trading conditions, under which a trading strategy is being tested.

Developing Pivot Mean Oscillator: a novel Indicator for the Cumulative Moving Average

This article presents Pivot Mean Oscillator (PMO), an implementation of the cumulative moving average (CMA) as a trading indicator for the MetaTrader platforms. In particular, we first introduce Pivot Mean (PM) as a normalization index for timeseries that computes the fraction between any data point and the CMA. We then build PMO as the difference between the moving averages applied to two PM signals. Some preliminary experiments carried out on the EURUSD symbol to test the efficacy of the proposed indicator are also reported, leaving ample space for further considerations and improvements.
