Hi all,

I am a newbie to MQ4. I am trying to create an EA that places the order after a few bars from a Moving Average Crossover. I know how to identify the Moving Average crossover. I know how to count the number of bars. But when I combine these two into a single EA I cannot get the expected result. Can anyone help me please?

Where is the sample of code you're using to achieve this? If you would like someone to code this for you then try the jobs section.

You know WHEN the cross happened. A iBarShift on the when IS "number of bars after" If the cross was 4 bars ago, how many bars are after? FOUR.
