help on spread monitor
I found this spread monitor ii from this forum.. thanks to that.
A: latest high price
B: latest low price
C: spread(distance between red and white lines)
D: current bid/ask price(since it's 4 digits, can't handle 5 digits shown E)
E: 5 figure bid/ask price(spread)
Anyone can help 2 things...
1. change 4 digits to 5 digits
2. change A and B to latest highest/lowest spreads
looking like this below
two lines(Figure C) goes inside these two dotted lines above
Thanks for any help.
I know it's very old thread but here's your request anyway
can you add another historical line for diff. between ask and bid like (ask 1.61801 bid 1.61792 diff.=.9 pip)
Anyone know if there's an EA which logs daily swap (ie logs each day's swap so you can see if changes over time or even if the broker changes it without warning)?
Thanks in advance

Bid/Ask spread analysis in MetaTrader 5
If you don't use Limit or Stop orders for both trade entry and exit then you will use market orders and of course these depend on the size of the Bid/Ask spread to determine what prices you receive.
When you hit the buy button, you actually buy at the ASK price which is a spread size above the bid price that you probably used to decide to buy.
When you hit the sell button, you actually sell at the BID price which is a spread size below the ask price.
Of course when you hit the close button to close a position that you had previously bought, you actually sell at the current BID price.
And the reverse is true, when you hit the close button to close a position that you had previously shorted, you actually buy back or cover at the current ASK price.
Now we can use tick data from MetaTrader 5 to analyze what the historic true average Bid/Ask spread actually have recently been.
You shouldn't need to look at the current spread because that is available if you show both bid and ask price lines.
