This simple code,add 10 to initial equity value (1000) each second until it reach 1200,now what i want to do if possible?, is fixing value to 1200 .
after if my metatrder4 shutdown and restart,de counting process must begin from 1200 and not the old value of 1000.

thank for any help

If you want a variable to keep its value after restart then make it a Global Variable. https://docs.mql4.com/globals.
