All lessons of Codersguru (for MT4) attached (just in case someone wants to learn mql4 for coding). By the way, Codersguru is the member of our forum (his profile link) and he is the author of the famous MQL4 trading courses which he provided online on TSD forum. We always should rememeber the people who were the first.
I attached pdf files of those codes to the post.
