Hi there,

I am using MetaTrader with forex.com, and I have no idea how it works. I have placed a couple of demo orders, but that it not what I am after. I want to know how the EA and indicators work, etc etc etc. How do I get it to automatically place orders for me? How do I get it to show buy and sell signals. What is the difference between and EA, indicator, custom script, and script. You guys get the picture? Can someone help explain please?

Aren't there any online tutorials?

Regards

Hi Brendan,

I also started like you and I did a trading course with ABC Trading School Technical Analysis courses applied to Forex they gave me a system then I read MQL Tutorial by Coders` guru - MQL4 forum and started getting an understanding. Then I programmed the system with Expert Advisor Builder for MetaTrader 4

I'm a beginner and want to gain an understanding of the best combinations. I heard Visual Trader 2.0 and Metatrader are good - but which brokers can i get these platforms with? And are there are any good platforms you would recommend?
