I have made an EA using ZigZag, no error and no warning. However; when I debug, it doesn't trade at all. Any idea what in the world is wrong with it. I appreciate your comments and help. Thank you.

1. Many (most of) EAs are created based on manual trading systems.
For example, some person was trading manually using some indicators and he can see that it is profitable for him. And after that he will want to create EA to automate his manual trading strategy.

2. But there some people who are using the manual trading strategy developed by the other people. Nothing wrong with it in case those some people checked trading strategy, traded it at least on demo account to define the rules for trading and more.

3. There is the other story: coders may program the EA based on raw idea. Raw idea is not a trading system, it is just an idea ... someone attached few indicators to the chart and he is thinking that it may be profitable (but he does not trade this idea on demo account, he did not open the trade ... nothing ... just attached indicators to the chart.


If the coder created EA and this EA is not openning any trades (or it is losing EA) so it means the following:

  • bug in code, or
  • EA was created based on raw idea.

Can't Find Any Profitable EA on MQL5 in past 5 years.

Sergey Golubev, 2019.04.14 08:26

There are Raw Ideas, and it is about the following: "I attach indicators to the chart and see that it may be profitable".

There are Elaborated/Proven Ideas. It is about the following: the user was trading his indicators' setup during the several days/or weeks/or months on demo account (and, in some cases - on real/live account). I am not talking about backtesting. Raw idea became to be a Elaborated Idea by trading (at least - on demo).

Why to trade? To define the trading rules, and to know: when the system will let you win, and when you will lose by using this system (and why).

  • Some people prefer to do it (to trade to get the proof that their ideas are profitable ideas) in public threads
    by the following steps:
    - posting raw idea on the forum, with the indicators uploaded to the thread, and
    - trading with one broker,
    - trading with the other broker,
    - elaborate the rules of the system, and
    - ask for coders to code the proven profitable elaborated idea),
    - after that - receive EA based on this system (some coders may code for free using the public threads; some coders will never code for free ... up to them),
    - optimize the settings,
    - find the settings for some timeframes and more. Many people prefer to post/upload everything (incl final results as the EA for example) on their public threads.
  • The other people are doing privately (with no one can see it). In this case - we all do not believe in his results and do not trust him in general (because we have no idea about how he achieved the results, and we should be fully sure that his profitable system is not fake one ... but we are not sure because we do not know him in pertson and we do not trust any his word any his system).
  • And the other people do not do anything. They just ask: "did you finish your great job here? did you spend your money to find the settings, did you spend your time to trade this manuall system on demo or live, right? So, for now - you should give this profitable EA to me and explain all your system to me (for free of course!)".

Trading Systems Based on Signal Indicators

Sergey Golubev, 2013.03.13 10:06

I will "optimize" this optimization by parameters for small money so not a problem at all. You know - some strange with terms:

  • when i am making slow complete optimization - it is going very fast with more costs by money and with all cloud agents used
  • when I am making optimization as fast algorithm so it is going veery slowly with very little cost (just for few cents) with 1 agents of cloud using

So, in case of using Cloud: fast optimization is really slow one, and slow optimization is very fast but costs some money sorry. Some people are asking: why my optimization is very slow? Reply may be the following: "because you are making it in fast mod. Change the mode to slow and it will be really fast". And that is true.

Non-linear indicators 

Non-linear indicators 

Non-linear methods are widely used to handle financial time series. In particular, there are quite a few indicators in the MetaTrader trading platform that use non-linear approaches. All of them are actively used in trading.
Non-linear indicators may be needed when certain characteristics of a signal are more important than general information. In addition, non-linear indicators can cope with situations, in which linear indicators are powerless.
Let's take the indicator template from this article and convert it into the logarithmic version.
