Forum on trading, automated trading systems and testing trading strategies


Because the threads about coding, general discussion about trading systems and similar threads are in high priority on the forum. The technical/fundamental analysis threads (and Trading Joking thread) are off-topic for now.

It was some discussion on the forum between the moderators and the members, and the consensus was made related to the following:

  • the posts with external links (external links from int'l famous websites related to the Forex and the stocks) should be place on one thread only: Press review thread; we can use 'to pocket' feature to place those posts to any other threads for example;
  • non-related off-topic content with the links can be posted on this thread only: Traders Joking (with some limitations sorry);
  • we can not open more than 4 threads in a week about technical/fundamental analysis with the exception of 3-month threads (the threads which can be opened once in 3 month) - those threads (5 or 8 threads for example) can be opened once in a 3 months .

There are similar situation in ru part of the forum with the following exception:

  • they can post external links everywhere but they are keeping one thread only for technical/fundamental analysis - this thread - and their thread is of 628 pages for now! :)

I just hope that Metaquotes will create the special section/sub-forum or any so we can post the technical/fundamental analysis on the forum without any limitation for example.

Question: W‌hich section should I post in?

‌Anything that only relates to MQL4 / MT4 should be posted in the MQL4 and MetaTrader 4 section.

Everything else should be posted in the most appropriate section.

Recommendations and Advertising

Please do not ask for recommendations e.g. "Please recommend to me a profitable EA" or "Which is the best signal?"

Advertising is not allowed on the forum and any "recommendations" would invariably be advertising.

However, you can go to the Market or Signals section and read the reviews there.

Welcome,

  • Usually people who cannot code do not receive free help on this forum, although it could happen if you are lucky. Be patient.
  • If you show your attempts and describe your problem clearly, you will most probably receive an answer from the community.
  • If you do not want to learn to code, that is not a problem. You can either look at the Codebase if something free already exists, or in the Market for paid products (also sometimes free).

Good luck.

Murrey Math Line - Line Drawing Problem

Keith Watford, 2017.07.19 00:24

Salexes,

please do not post multiple times. Post once in a relevant thread or open a topic with a relevant title. Does your enquiry have anything to do with Murray Math? Not really, it is how to modify a horizontal line.

You probably don't realise how selfish you are being by posting multiple times.

Have you any idea how frustrating it is when someone uses their free time to answer a query and then opens another thread and finds a duplicate query that has already been answered? That means that the time spent on answering was completely wasted! Time that could have been used to help somebody else.


You will need to draw a trendline instead of a horizontal line.

Use Time[0] for the first time co-ordinate and Time[0] + n * PeriodSeconds() for the 2nd

Note that you may need to check and modify at a new bar in case of missing bars 



Your duplicated posts have been deleted.
