I have forum-searched & Googled this but there is not much out there :(
Looking at this 'Ask'
we can have n copies of the application on each computer...
but how do we start them easily on reboot to connect and start operations?
Command lines in shortcuts or batch files in the Startup folder (of XP) would seem to be a simple method but what are the switches & their order?
I have read that account number &/or profile can be set in a command line but what exactly are all the options?

FourAverage: A Breakthrough in Trend Identification
With evolving information technology and increasing number of market participants, financial markets get less and less analyzable using good old indicators. Common technical analysis tools, such as Moving Average or Stochastic alone, are not capable of identifying the trend direction or reversal.

Purpose and functions of the indicator
The indicator determines and marks the moments of trend change on a chart based on the theory of fractal levels breakdown on any time frames. If a breakdown based on all rules is real, the horizontal lines will appear on the chart with corresponding color. If there is an up trend, the line will be blue. In the descending trend the line will be red. The blue line is a strong support level, the trader should look for buying opportunities above this line. The

The script is intended for automatic placing of Sell Stop pending orders, Stop Losses and Take Profits on the user specified levels. This script is not that useful as "Virtual pending buy stop", since short positions are opened as Bid price crosses the levels. Thus spread widening is not dangerous. Nevertheless, you need to have this script to prevent unwanted hitting of the Stop Loss levels.

The fractal analysis of the markets is used in the indicator operation algorithm. According to the fractals theory, after the breakthrough of the fractal level confirmed by the closing price located below or above the fractal, the trend wave in the direction of the breakthrough starts to develop. Until the fractal has been passed in the opposite direction, the trend is considered to be acting even if the price is flat or moves backwards. If a bullish fractal has been previously broken through on

The indicator determines and marks the short-term lows and highs of the market on the chart according to Larry Williams` book "Long-term secrets to short-term trading".
"Any time there is a daily low with higher lows on both sides of it, that low will be a short-term low. We know this because a study of market action will show that prices descended in the low day, then failed to make a new low, and thus turned up, marking that ultimate low as a short-term point. A short-term market high is just
The Expert Advisor implements the classic "triangular arbitrage", which is successfully used by hedge funds.
Arbitrage refers to a class of neutral-market strategies, in which the profit or loss of open positions does not depend on the direction of the market movement as a whole.
In order to take profit, the EA exploits a weak spot of market makers - it utilizes the difficulty of combining cross rates of individual currency pairs.
The advantages of the strategy are the following:

In a downtrend, SafeZone defines noise as the portion of the current bar that extends above the high of the previous bar, against the downtrend. It averages the noise level over a period of time and multiplies it by a trader-selected factor.

Thanks very much ukt :)
Seems the context for this information is within the application construction rather than MQL programming.
I had noticed that after a crash, MT4 would not neccessarily restart on the same profile or chart/s as prior to the hang.
So I was keen to handle quick recovery as well as efficient initial setup - this system does both :)
To save people trawling through it, it appears you can start a specific instance of MT4 with a command line (in batch file or shortcut)
An example of start.ini would be:
; common settings
Proxy Server Settings
; experts settings
; open chart and run expert and/or script
Hi I am trying to do batch testing of EA's using a .INI file for each EA and then telling strategy tester to process them, as per the Help documetation. But Between each and every file The terminal shuts down and re-opens and re-logins.
This of course is very time consuming and probably very annoying to my broker's server when doing several dozen EA's.
Does anyone know of a way in the batch file to tell the terminal to start one instance and use it for the whole test. Or to use an already open instance if one is already open on that machine?
I use the simple method of making an icon for each different instance of MT4 then I just plonk the icons that I want to auto start in the startup menu.
how to set ftp setting in mt4 start up using command line.
extern int ftp = 5; //this way we have a ftp setting in the start up with a command line
The parameter names has actually changed. From "ExpertParameters" to "TestExpertParameters" for example.
I can't find the documentation anymore for MetaTrader 4.
This solution works.
On the command line I issue a bat-file with the following contents:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTraderl\terminal.exe" /wait "C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\Common\Files\kanalen GER30 H1 bull.txt
And the contents of the text file is:
; Generated [Sun 2014-04-27 08:01:57]
TestReport=kanalen H1 GER30 bear
Hope this will help someone. I surely would have benefitted myself if I've gotten this help.
I also have a script that generates all these command-files. It makes it possible to easily to test 15 strategies.
Then I do a portfolio analysis by reading from the generated htm-files which ends up in a .CSV-file for the Portfolio.
That's fantastic that I found topic dealing with problems I have.
Unfortunately that solution doesn't work for me(yet).
