Hey!

A few days ago I bought an Indicator at the market and I thought of creating an Expert advisor using it (buy/sell according to the arrows).

I've talked to the Indicator seller and he only accepted giving me the iCustom. I was thinking of using this web page http://www.eabuilder.com to code it, but I need the .mq5 file (I only have the .ex5).

My question is: if I have the iCustom of the Indicator how can I code an Expert Advisor?

Or should I hire a freelancer to do the job? 

 Thanks.

    • We hate EA builder
    • You couldn't be bothered to learn mql4, therefor there is no common language for us to communicate.
    • There are only two choices: learn to code it, or pay someone. We're not going to code it FOR you. We are willing to HELP you when you post your attempt (using SRC) and the nature of your problem, but we are not going to debug your hundreds lines of code.
    • EA builder makes bad code counting up while closing multiple orders.
    • EA builder makes bad code Bars is unreliable (max bars on chart) volume is unreliable (miss ticks) Always use time. New candle - MQL4 forum
    • EA builder makes bad code Not adjusting for 4/5 digit brokers, TP/SL and slippage:
      double   pip        = StringFind(_Symbol,"JPY") < 0 ? 0.01 : 0.0001;
      int      slippage   = 3 * int(pip / _Point);
    • EA builder makes bad code not adjusting for ECN brokers.
    • EA builder makes bad code not checking return codes.
    • EATree uses objects on chart to save values - not persistent storage (files or GV+Flush.) No recovery (crash/reboot.)
