How to choose the most appropriate signal and subscribe to it in no time

I am having some trouble with iCustom. I need to use it for such a simple thing as passing a buy and put signal to an EA.

Can someone show me a simple way to do this?


This is some of the code in the EA:

double CallFromIndicator;
double PutFromIndicator;

CallFromIndicator = iCustom(NULL,0,"IndicatorForEA",1,0);
PutFromIndicator = iCustom(NULL,0,"IndicatorForEA",2,0); 




if(CallFromIndicator == 1)
printf (CallFromIndicator + "Call");

if(PutFromIndicator == 1)
printf (PutFromIndicator + "Put");


 The printf is just for debugging


And here is some code from the indicator:

#property indicator_buffers 1



double PutBuffer[];
double CallBuffer[];




// PUT

if (EverythingAlignsForAput = true){
         PutBuffer[2] = 1;

// CALL 

if (EverythingAlignsForAcall == true){
         CallBuffer[1] = 1;

PutBuffer[2] = 0;
CallBuffer[1] = 0;

  1. #property indicator_buffers 1
    double PutBuffer[];
    double CallBuffer[];
    Can't have two
  2. CallFromIndicator = iCustom(NULL,0,"IndicatorForEA",1,0);
    PutFromIndicator = iCustom(NULL,0,"IndicatorForEA",2,0); 
    If you have SetIndexBuffer(0, PutBuffer); SetIndexBuffer(1, CallBuffer); then your iCustom calls are wrong.
  3. if (EverythingAlignsForAput = true)    PutBuffer[2] = 1;
    if (EverythingAlignsForAcall == true) CallBuffer[1] = 1;
    Why are you setting element 2? Shouldn't the signal be on the current bar or the previous? In either case your iCustom calls are wrong.

Thanks...  Just new to this as you can understand.


Could you make an example how I can get two different signals from the indicator to the EA?
My brain is totally ****** up probably :)

No one can make a good example how to get Call and Put signals from an indicator to an EA? So far I only have got info about things that is wrong.
