Hi,

I have been searching in all of the MT4 folders (build 600) trying to find where the settings for a EA are saved once the MT4 is shutdown. When metatrader is opened again the settings are load with the last changes... but I can´t see from where MT4 is loading them.

Any ideas??

Thanks in Advance!!

The fact of an EA being attached to a chart, and the EA's settings on the chart, are stored in the chart file (the .chr file in a subdirectory under profiles).
