 I have checked the default metatrader moving average number and it doesn't seem ima function is equal to moving average. I need it for the current time we're in + I checked the properties of the iMA and its all equal to the default moving average properties

  1. Don't paste code

    Please edit your post.
    For large amounts of code, attach it.
  2. iMA("AUDCAD", ...        // Symbol unless your dealer has adornments. Just use NULL.
       // Broker's use a variety of nameing patterns: EURUSD, EURUSDm, EURUSDi
       // "EURUSD.", "EURUSD..", "EUR.USD", "EUR/USD", "EURUSD.stp", EURUSDct,
       // "EURUSD.G", "EURUSD+", EURUSDpro at least.
    
  3. "Doesn't seem" is meaningless - just like saying the car doesn't work. Doesn't start, won't go in gear, no electrical, missing the key, flat tires - meaningless. There are no mind readers here.
  4. Print close values from bars [zero .. 13], and the ima(..., 0)

Thanks for telling me those stuff, first time in this forum needed to know those + The problem was solved by putting NULL at the first as you said , think the reason the code wasn't properly was that the pattern wasn't right and the ima couldn't get the values correctly , thanks alot/
