Receive data from mt4 and do generate signal (cell value), and after signal 'approved" and these signal send to MT4, in MT4 signal be received by EA file and place order 

William Roeder #:
  1. Excel files are binary, unreadable; contains formulas, formatting, etc. You can save-as CSV, and put into the «DataFolder»/Files. Then the code can read it.

  2. Why complicate it. Move your logic into an EA and you are done.
I did but still developing

@MAXON #: Thus, the MetaTrader 4 indicator transfers the previous day’s data and opens the current day to an Excel file with all the indicators on the platform, with the choice of working on more than one frame and with the same data, preferably complete for the pairs present in the market hour. Can someone help me do this?
  • Usually people who can't code don't receive free help on this forum.
  • If you show your attempts and describe your problem clearly, you will most probably receive an answer from the community. Use the CODE button (Alt-S) when inserting code.
  • To learn MQL programming, you can research the many available Articles on the subject, or examples in the Codebase, as well as reference the online Documentation.
  • 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). However, recommendations or suggestions for Market products are not allowed on the forum, so you will have to do your own research.
  • Finally, you also have the option to hire a programmer in the Freelance section.
I need someone to help me to modify the script to be an indicator that reads MetaTrader 4 indicators instantly in an Excel file.
