They are multi timeframe, does that mean they wont work for an automated expert in backtesting to?
It seems like my EA does not follow my logics in backtesting, it enters at wrong times and it exits without all the criteria beeing fullfilled, thats why i asked.
Set the colour of the zero line ton none
I think he is referring to this :
The only way to remove the display of the line (but the "0" is still going to be displayed on the right side of the sub-window) is to turn the grid display off. Otherwise you can not do anything to remove it
when we compare equation i.e. previous candle low or high, greater or smaller then previous candle, metatrader doesn't allow to do it?
In belthold pattern this formula is used, in this c >h1.
is it true that, we can't compare high low with open close bodies? i guess in many instances, in many candlestick pattern formula's high low is compared with candle bodies.
Hi mladen sir,
I really have no idea how to do it? and i don't have code so i really don't know.
i guess,comparing bodies to high low is possible.. but i've no idea how to do it?
Hi everyone again.
I just made an EA which takes entries based on similarity between a series of timeframes. The EA seems to be taking great entries but it is getting out to slow wiping all the profit.
The result are to many losing positions even if many of them was original winners. My exits are now based on change of slope direction or traders index zero cross.
What are the most common exit methods for automated trading? This is my first try to automate anything and i didnt relaise how hard it was to get exits right. All we think of is entries before e have to exit.
As a human you can always monitor and manage positions accordingly, but for automated trading the case is different.
The most common exit is exactly the same as entry : if you get a new entry signal in one direction and you have an opened position in the opposite direction, you first close the opened order and then open the new order in the direction of the new signal
Yes. that is what I was talking about
Thanks I haven't noticed the correlation of grid display and zero level display
I'm trying to coding a simple EA for reading a CSV file in the MQL41\Files folder.
According to the below image/results it's able to open the file but the strings are empty.
