Help Making Simple EA work! Please

sl89xx  

Hello,

Is there a kind soul out there that can help me with getting this EA working? I found this indicator (ABC.mq4) on a forum and would like to make a EA out of it, a friend of mine tried to make one but it dosent work (ABC EA.mq4). The indicator is really simple it signals buy/sell situations using arrows and i would like the EA to open a trade at the exact time a buy or sell arrow appears with TakeProfit and StopLoss parameters defineable by the user (preferably in pips)

I attach both the EA and the indicator so hopefully you guys don't need to make the EA from scratch. All help is appreciated.

Hi Mate!!

I've made some modifications to your indicator and EA.

I've attached 3 files:

the indicator : abc.mq4

the EA : abc_ea.mq4

the template: abc_ea.tpl

I've changed the way to decide when to trade.

Because I haven't obtained good results setting custom indicators inside the EA, I adopted the method of using Global Variables instead.

Because of that, I've modified the indicator.

The mechanics is simple: when the signal appears, I set the proper variable.

Inside the EA I'm checking for the possibles Global Variables.

When one is set, I execute the order.

There are a lot of improvements to make to the EA, but I think it could be a good starting point.

Best regards!!!

Edit your BUY & SELL conditions to this : if(abc0 != EMPTY_VALUE && i==0)

and

if(abc1 != EMPTY_VALUE && i==0)

It will work.
