It is useless to disturb me as I am not a coder.I can only code (for MT4) some simple EAs using icustom, or make some alert/alarm in indicators. But I am not a coder.If I need something so I buy in the Market or I order in Freelance service (and I did it many times).
But what topic starter is telling about "pay for 3-4 lines" so it is not - EA should work after modification, and it is not 2-3 lines (it may be more lines) ...Because if he requested the following: "insert 2-3 lines for the good working profitable EA to open the trades at 8am and close all of them at 9 pm" so it is real job.I think - he may go to freelance service for that.
yes of course you are right Sergey
Second step is "close trades at 10 pm": at 22:00 exact time?All the times (8 pm, 10 pm etc) are adjustable in the settings of the EA, right?
------------Because when you go to Freelance service so it may be good for you to formulate the task for the coder in understandable way (not in slang language way) so the coder will understand what you want in all the particularities (if you care about results for example).
just put on your code:
if - date is between those values...
before what is called ordersend, on your code. a coder could do it in less than a minute
i'm not a coder yet, but it's really easy once you understand it, its easier than learn mandarim for example.
See? It is easier than learning MQL for example!
PS! I don't understand why surgeons charge so much. They should just do it for free!
Because it's a forum about trading, which is supposed to allow you to earn money.
If your EA or strategy or whatever is working why do you want something for free ? I studied years, I invested a lot of time to be a skilled programmers, why should I work for free ?
As a lot of coders here I am ready to help other to learn coding, but I totally disagree to give something for free to people who don't want to make any efforts, they don't want to learn, they don't want to read, they don't want to understand and they don't want to pay.
Anyway, if you want to help or code for free, just do it. Usually people get what they paid for.
Edit: Thinking about it, it's not even because it's about trading, I doubt you can find any site or forum about anything where you can ask other people to do something at your place for free. Personally, I would not even dare to ask such thing.
