Thanks much for the speedy reply.
LSMA indi mod?
Could you please provide an LSMA In Color as a histogram?
I'm trying to code it with no success.
Hi Mr (Robert) Pip,
Please let me introduce myself as new commer in this fields and I'm so impressed with how guys you all here discussing matters, but I need some information from you, explaining all about words called: Stop hunting by brokers.
My friend told me that somehow we've got problem accordingly.
Thanks and I really like to learn more about making EA and/or indicator.
Thank you all, especially to Mr (Robert) Pip.
i think a question best answered by mrpip
i downloaded the lsma v1.0.mq4 made by you for wnw
but when i attached the ea thru the expert adviser
i dont get the indicator ploted on the chart.
it does make the trades tho.
thanks in advance
The file mentioned is an EA and does not plot the lines on the chart. For that you need to use lsma_in_color.
for that quickreply.
i am assuming you are talking about lsma in color 4 on the first page
as i was reading the inputs in the ea (applied price types.)
i am assuming that depending on the input picked,would that not change the lsma curve.
and therefore if the inputs affected the actual indicator would that not also affect the actual buy and sell triggers.
i guess my main question is what do these inputs actualy do.
a little clarification would be greatly appreciated.
thanks a lot peter
ps. i am glad i found your thread,as i have been following your answers on many threads on many forums. i have already figured out that you are a master not only in programming ea's,but also in your whole approach to trading.
if anyone can put together a killer stratagy, i would say hands down mrpip
this is going to be my favourite hangout as long as you are here.
and thanks again.
The various applied price types are used for the price data. The curve does change as can be seen by placing the same period with all different price types on a chart.
I just hope I can find the time to add to this EA. I have been very busy coding EAs for paying clinets.
In case I did not already attach this earlier I am also attaching an indicator that has the same applied price inputs. Use 4 for the MA type to use LSMA.
thanks again mr pip and wnm for posting this ea,
now the ea makes sense.
one more request if its do able.
what does the following input parameters actualy do.
1. use money management.
2. signal time frame.
3. signal candle.
thanks a lot. peter
UseMoneyManagement when true will cause the ea to trade a percentage of equity based on the value of RisjkPercent. When false the value entered for LotSize is used.
SignalTimeFrame was used to get a more accurate backtest. When set to 0 it will use the chart timeframe where attached. When the EA was first written more accurate results were found when the signal timeframe was daily but the backtest was run on the 5 minute timeframe. The newer release of MT4 since then seems to have the same accuracy so the setting can be left at 0.
Signal canlde set to one means the signal is from closed candles. Wheh set to 0 the signal is from the current unclosed candle. You could even use 2 so the trade is placed based on signal from 2 candles back.
thanks again for your excellent explanations.
where can i pm u for a coding job
