I did not try this #6 version yet.
Try to backtest. Just change the date in text file. And please note that you should use different text files for this V6. And not one file. Two different files.
I'm trying to use the newstrader v6, but I see from igorad, it requires another number (ex. 2007.04.10;01:30;AUD;NAB Business Confidence;1;1;) but the updated file is only for version 5 it seems.
Does anyone have the april file for news in this format? Or how do I do it myself?
been testing with v5, yes updating mt4 was my original prob!! anyone else have orders that are not being deleted after duration time is up? it seems to overlook some of the delete pending orders for any random chart. example...it left buy/sell eurusd orders once then another time it left 1 hanging usdjpy order.
XML calendar idea
Im wondering... XML was designed solely to transfer data between computer systems via the internet in a simple text file.
Is it possible to use XML inside an EA? If you could, someone could setup a web server somewhere to broadcast out the current news events and their expected effect on the market.
Then the news trading EAs could simply connect to this and download all calendar events for the next few months!
Totally simple and totally automated.
Anyone know how to get this done?
Text file in the first post is for version #5.
In the first post it is stated the following:
And look at this post by Igorad: https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/175898/page23
So basicly you need to write set text file with the settings (example is on the first post of this thread). Just keep everything the same in that set text file. and only you may change is the settings numbered 1, 2 and so on.
And in text forex calendar (for version #5) just add the last number which is number of settings in set text file.
I had this case. That is why I changed the time for session end settings (see new setings in some posts above). Basicly it is because of bad connection Mettatrader with the broker sometimes in midnight.
Igorad created totally new version and we are testing it now (beta testing). If it is ok so i will post it of course.
This version is using API from our forex calendar https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/176665 to take the news events automatically.
Besides everybody may create their own calendar and trade it, or use mine.
My calendar ID is 4. So create your own public, or your own private, or your own for trading signals and so on.
- Private events is the events that people may get according to your private invitation for example; and it is visible for that people only.
- Public events is the events for everybody.
- Events means calendar or trading signals and so on (anything tradable).
Besides everybody may create some signals as private events and other people may follow it.
It was created. It was done but it should be tested for at least one-two days for possible bugs.
I am very busy creating calendar here https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/176665. It is not calendar only if you understand. It is something with some APIs and some dll files and so on to do that. Thanks forexts for creating this great tool!
And if new version of Newstrader (from Igorad and forexts) will be fine so it will be very good and we may take any events from this calendar.
Because all the events are repeated mostly in month way so I will need 1 and half week more to be busy with that and everything will be fine after that means that i will be ready for any ther testing/development). And, in the same time, the beta testing of this totally new NewsTrader is going on.
That is why I am now testing version #6. Because we got totally new version now.
But this new version will be based on version #5. Later on Igorad will find some way to use different setting for "totally new version" and we may trade as mnay calendars/trading signals/events (commercial or private - anyone) as we want.
I'm working on the ECN trading, initially rewriting EA in another language to work on the ECN and later emulating MT4 server or EA execution on the ECN if possible. I think the newstrader could easily be converted because there aren't any weird signals to adapt.
It works. Look at the image attached. The data for news was taken from this our calendar (ID=4) https://www.mql5.com/en/forum
Why I cound not install this EA?
Because of Jurik indicators set here https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/173010 (this jurik is having a lot of library files).
I will post this EA tomorrow.
New version of Newstrader (v5.1) was updated on the post #1 of this thread. This version is taking the news directly from our forex-tsd calendar https://www.mql5.com/en/forum
We don't need text file anymore. Because people may use my calendar, or create other calendar they want to trade with any events. All the explanation is on the post #1.
