Hi,

I have a script to scan candlestick pattern on multiple symbols. When I run the script in the morning, it always gives me candlestick pattern the day before.

After I run it again, it gives me today's pattern. Seems that the first run did not download the symbols price data.

How do I force download all symbols data in script?

 

Thanks

Seriously, nobody can help you without seeing the code.

I would recommend to you to use


   MqlRates rates[];
   //ArraySetAsSeries(rates,true);

   enum IdxCR { i4,i3,i2,i1,i0 }; // only valid in this case as i4==0 and with this you don't need ArraySetAsSeries
   ...
   int copied=CopyRates(FX_Pairs[i],0,0,4,rates);
   if(copied>0) {
      ...
      Prev_H = rates[i2].high;
      ...
   }


I think that

  1. CopyRates(..) will give you the latest quotes - without an additional RefreshRates
  2. it is faster - I think copy only one array instead of 4*3 different function calls with data requests
  3. it is mql5-ready
  4. enum-values can be handled by the debugger #define not :(

Thanks. I absolutely forgot about mqlrates

Hi all,

I have tried copyrates but first run still do not have the latest data. Only when I run it the second time it gives me the correct output.

Any idea?

Try make loop to get all data, then scan all.

I guess so. Have to make to loops instead of one.

Thanks for the suggestion.
