Get into the habit of checking the Experts tab for errors . . . your iCustom() call is for this Indicator . . . "Pressurised Market Buy(Downward Bias)" your posted code says the file name is "Pressurised Market Buy (Downward Bias).mq4" the names differ by a space after Buy and (Downward

My test code using your iCustom() call with the correct Indicator name works just fine . . .

  1. Did you call GetLastError and find out why?
  2. PMB             = iCustom(NULL,0,"Pressurised Market Buy(Downward Bias)",0,0);
    
    //|                       Pressurised Market Buy (Downward Bias).mq4 |
    
    The indicator name in iCustom doesn't match the comment in the indicator code. What is the actual file name?

Yeah it didn't, there was even another issue that was preventing my EA from acting on the values received from the indicator but I managed to deal with that one without bothering anyone, so that's a positive. Thanks for all the help.
