Help to improve
Can somebody improve this indicator. Thanks.
While im doing back testing on Meta Trader and it gives the Max Drawdown in Percent. I mainly trade the 1HR TF
Meta Trader Data Rate
im thinking of getting a PDA to trade from since Meta trader is availible on it. I was woundering if anyone knew the sort of data size meta trader tics would add up to. I cant imagine it being very large but i need to know what data package to go for.
Does anyone know how much data Meta Trader would download if I left it on say 24/5
Thanks for your help.
I found this indicator and it has some great value in finding entries and exits. I'm a novice programmer and didn't have much luck with this. If someone could translate this VT code to an MT4 indicator I'd greatly appreciate it. The VT code is there.

Need Help With Indicator
I am creating an indicator that utilizes the AbsoluteStrength indicator to determine market condition. It is supposed to display a row of circles of different colors indicator signifying a particular market condition. I plan to place four copies of the indicator with different time frames for market condition confirmation. My problem is I cannot get the indicator to display. Whenever I attach it to my chart, my computer hangs up. I have tried to find the problem for a week now but am coming up blank. I'm sure it's an easy fix, I just cannot see it. I would appreciate if someone can take a look at the code and see if they notice anything wrong. I DON'T RECOMMEND ATTACHING IT TO YOUR CHART AS IT WILL HANG YOUR COMPUTER IN IT'S CURRENT FORM.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I am watching all these numbered blue, green and salmon dots with differing sizes on the screen. Sometimes there is a little red x...
It might help if you explain to us how to trade this indicator?
I am curious...do you use the m5 or the h1 tf?
To explain things further, you can see that there are 1 to 7 number created by this indicator, I need a sound alert whenever "1" (ZLR) appear on the chart. A simple sound with any further messages will do.
I hope this shall explain further. Thanks.
it appears the number one is always a long trade no? or if it is above its a short?
ok..well I suppose a kind programmer does not need to know these things unless you want a long and a short sound...please excuse the interupption and it seems like a nice indicator to alert the Woodie users about a trigger...
I noticed it disappears...will the sound go off and on then?
