The Exp_XROC2_VG_Digit_Tm Expert Advisor trades based on signals generated by the XROC2_VG oscillator. It also provides the possibility to set a strict trading time interval.

A trade signal is formed when a bar is closing, if the indicator color has changed (the main indicator line has crossed the signal line).

It is possible to specify trading time in input parameters to trade in the specified time interval:

input bool   TimeTrade=true;      //Allow trading in the specified interval
input HOURS  StartH=ENUM_HOUR_0;  //Trading start (hours)
input MINUTS StartM=ENUM_MINUT_0; //Trading start (minutes)
input HOURS  EndH=ENUM_HOUR_23;   //Trading end (hours)
input MINUTS EndM=ENUM_MINUT_59;  //Trading end (minutes) 

Two variables (hours and minutes) are provided for the operation start time, and two similar variable for the end time.

Default settings enable the Expert Advisor to trade the whole trading session from 0:00, while all positions are closed at 23:59.

If the start time is later than the specified end time, the Expert Advisor will close positions the next day, at the specified time.

For a correct operation of the Expert Advisor, you should save the XROC2_VG.ex5 compiled indicator file to <terminal_data_folder>\MQL5\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 during position opening. You can download more variants of the library at the following link: Trade Algorithms.

Default input parameters of the Expert Advisor were used during the tests shown below. Stop Loss and Take Profit were not used during testing.
