\MQL5\Include\\MQL5\Indicators\\MQL5\Experts\
The Exp_ColorZerolagMomentum_X2 trend trading system based on the signals from two ColorZerolagMomentum indicators. The first indicator determines the direction of the slow trend based on the position of the main and signal lines. The second indicator determines the moment for opening a trade, when the lines are crossed or touched. The signal is formed when a bar is closing if two conditions are met:
  1. Signals of the fast and slow trend match;
  2. Direction of the fast trend has changed.

String parameters with text in the code of input parameters are only for better visualization of the input parametera window of the expert.

The ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF indicators in the EA are intended only for a more convenient visualization of trends in the strategy tester, in other operation modes they are inactive.

Place ColorZerolagMomentum.ex5 and ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF.ex5 compiled files to the <terminal_data_folder>\MQL5\Indicators.

After compilation, the Exp_ColorZerolagMomentum.ex5 expert file contains the ColorZerolagMomentum.ex5 and ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF.ex5 indicators as resources, and therefore, they are not required to be present in the terminal folder for the compiled EA to work! For this purpose, the corresponding code has been added to the EA code in order to include these indicators in the expert's executable file.

The indicator executable files have been added as resources at the global scope

//---- Include the indicators in the EA code as resources
#resource "\\Indicators\\ColorZerolagMomentum.ex5"
#resource "\\Indicators\\ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF.ex5"

Changed the string paths to the indicators used as resources in the block of the OnInit() function

//---- getting handle of the ColorZerolagMomentum indicator
   InpInd_Handle=iCustom(Symbol(),TimeFrame,"::Indicators\\ColorZerolagMomentum",
                         smoothing,IPC,Factor1,Momentum_period1,Factor2,Momentum_period2,Factor3,Momentum_period3,Factor4,Momentum_period4,Factor5,Momentum_period5);
   if(InpInd_Handle==INVALID_HANDLE)
     {
      Print(" Failed to get handle of the ColorZerolagMomentum indicator");
      return(INIT_FAILED);
     }

//---- getting handle of the ColorZerolagMomentum indicator
   InpInd_Handle_=iCustom(Symbol(),TimeFrame_,"::Indicators\\ColorZerolagMomentum",
                          smoothing_,IPC_,Factor1_,Momentum_period1_,Factor2_,Momentum_period2_,Factor3_,Momentum_period3_,Factor4_,Momentum_period4_,Factor5_,Momentum_period5_);
   if(InpInd_Handle_==INVALID_HANDLE)
     {
      Print(" Failed to get handle of the ColorZerolagMomentum indicator");
      return(INIT_FAILED);
     }

   if(MQLInfoInteger(MQL_VISUAL_MODE))
     {
      //---- getting handle of the ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF indicator
      int Ind_Handle=iCustom(Symbol(),Period(),"::Indicators\\ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF",TimeFrame,
                             smoothing,IPC,Factor1,Momentum_period1,Factor2,Momentum_period2,Factor3,Momentum_period3,Factor4,Momentum_period4,Factor5,Momentum_period5);
      if(Ind_Handle==INVALID_HANDLE)
        {
         Print(" Failed to get handle of the ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF indicator");
         return(INIT_FAILED);
        }
      //---- getting handle of the ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF indicator
      Ind_Handle=iCustom(Symbol(),Period(),"::Indicators\\ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF",TimeFrame_,
                         smoothing_,IPC_,Factor1_,Momentum_period1_,Factor2_,Momentum_period2_,Factor3_,Momentum_period3_,Factor4_,Momentum_period4_,Factor5_,Momentum_period5_);
      if(Ind_Handle==INVALID_HANDLE)
        {
         Print(" Failed to get handle of the ColorZerolagMomentum_HTF indicator");
         return(INIT_FAILED);
        }

     }

Thus, the compiled executable file of the expert can be used on other trade terminals on its own without the indicators.

Note that the TradeAlgorithms.mqh library file allows using Expert Advisors with brokers who offer nonzero spread and the option of setting Stop Loss and Take Profit together with position opening. You can download more variants of the library at the following link: Trade Algorithms.

Default Expert Advisor's input parameters have been used during the tests shown below. Stop Loss and Take Profit have not been used during the tests.
