Yes I have used the search function.......

I downloaded an EA from FxAutomated and it executes a trade at a certain time of day. This is what i am looking for to research my strategy BUT it will not open a new trade until the previous is closed. I need it to open 1 trade a day regardless of if there are any open orders.

I purchased a book "Expert Adviser Programming" but I have failed to change the code properly. I can make it open more trades but it opens more than 1 trade per day.

I know about FIFO rule but this is only a researching tool. I downloaded MT4 from a broker outside the US for DEMO purposes only. The EA is listed as free on their site and with the MQ4 code so I will post it here but if this is not allowed mods please delete the code.

Thank you

Bill

You have only three choices: Search for it, learn to code it, or pay someone. We're not going to code it FOR you. We are willing to HELP you when you post your attempt (using SRC) and the nature of your problem.

He did describe the problem and post the code. Why not helping him?

Why respond to a dead thread nearly 2 years old?
