wish that my code was working in tester, it seems to be stuck in a loop. im new to using a while loop in the start/on tick and was hoping for anyone familiar with this ..the while loop is for waiting up to 15 seconds for spread ( with each time frame ) to be normal. so basically there is no way in tester to run something such as this? my 1st guess was in making a tick log and i'd rather use something smarter

extern string Tip1_MoneyManagement = "100.00 (Equity) * 0.0001 (Risk) = 0.01 (Lot)";

You can't loop in the tester; you must return to get the next tick.

Okay, that must be it but its true other than i price calls


my feelings about mt5 is a good one, maybe i can go mtf in tester with loops and all that, well idk yet
