Can someone tell me why I am having problems with the MT4 platform when I try running my EA?

The problem is that I run a 5 minute chart. I expect that that there should be a logging of variables at the start of the next 5 minute period. It doesn't; I get no sense of action occurring. The code was updated use state machines in order to diminish the processing time during a tick.

Does anyone detect a problem here?

It should be noted that the build of the Platform is 509.

  1. Get your EA to compile. SUNDAY is not defined.
  2. Using TimeLocal() means you can't use the tester.
  3. lotSize = MarketInfo("GBPUSD", MODE_LOTSIZE); means you can't trade any other symbol.
  4. if ( StringFind(Symbol(), "JPY") > (-1) ) means you can't trade metals Do it right (including SLIPPAGE) https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/141509 and a jpy pip is 0.01 not 0.001
  5. bid = NormalizeDouble(Bid, Digits); no need to use normalize double EVER. Predefined variables are fine by themselfs

I think I may found the problem. The systemState of PHASE_UNDETERMINED does not reassign the state variable. It stays stuck in PHASE_UNDETERMINED. It should be reassigned to PHASE_COLLECT_TICK_DATA, so that when the 5 minute period expires, the test can then be made to determine if the EA can test if either a Buy or Sell should be done.
