New builds solved the iCustom() slowing down problems
Yes, it seems to be much faster in some cases

Build 1010 :

  • max bars on chart setting is ignored
  • number of bars in an indicator can be something completely different from the number of bars displayed on chart (first run is frequently set to 1 or 2 as a number of bars, even though the bars on chart are much larger). That can cause some indicators to get an "array out of range" error, even though it is not a case once when the values are set as they should
  • always check if Bars is >= 2 for the above mentioned

Come to think of it, it does not happen if I use metatrader own server (the number of bars being 1 or 2). But the max bars on chart is ignored the same

This is not about a bug

This is a warning (and a reminder) that metatrader 5 handles arrays in completely different way. For example : when we resized arrays in metatrader 4, they were initialized too - metatrader 5 does not do that. So, make sure that all the elements of your array are set to proper values (there are no assumed 0 values in mt5 arrays) or else you can lose significant time. Arrays in mt5 are handled in exactly the same way as in C/C++

Thanks for the post. Sometimes it is really frustrating

It seems that there are issues with the latest mt5 upgrade - if you can, avoid it (make a backup before allowing it in any case)

If you installed metatrader somewhere in the program files folder, try copying it to some other drive/folder and starting the terminal from there
