Let make it like EA then you can backtest or trade on BTC - market open 24/7.

a) Put the critical part in a (new) script (not EA not indicator) and start from the bars on the chart back in history (int b = Bars; while(b-->0){... ) then you can use the debugger!

b) I mainly use google: "mt4 ..." - but it seem that google already knows me and what I would like to see, you may need some time to train google ;)

oooh , FYI  i am a bit new ..

so i did

1 created a new project

2)  selected script

3) saved the file

4) compiled  the file (no errors)

-- ( Lost ) --

However now looking as the editor i could use historical data..  how do i load that in

I do see the debugger button but don’t see my output anywhere when i press the play button..

Thanks for the help so far

Sometimes the debugger button is grey (disabled) - just "save it under a new name" and use the old name - confirm overwriting, and then it should be green again.

But MT4  b1045 or b1052 don't debugg at least indicators. Both I have 'send' to the service desk - no change so far.
