This article is the first in a series of articles on manual trading automation in the МetaТrader 4 trading platform. Each of the articles will be devoted to one of the following aspects: automation of manual trading, current state of trade display automation and automation of reports on trade results. In this article, I will present an interesting approach to creating EA's controlled manually by a trader.
Before we start, let's first have a look at the
operation of the Expert Advisor that will be considered further below.
The video will give you an idea of the processes that take place in the
terminal during trading. As a result, the article will be much easier to
understand (something like: "ah, so that is how it is implemented!").
For better comprehension of the video, it will be
enough to understand that there is an Expert Advisor that operates in
the terminal and is controlled by dropping control scripts onto the
terminal window. The Expert Adviser itself does not trade. It can only
pull stop levels (Stop Loss and Take Profit) after receiving a relevant
command from a trader. Script names clearly correspond to their
respective actions, while their use is explained in tooltips.
