Hi.

I'm relatively new to MQL programming. I searched for this in the Docs for some time, but I couldn't find any solution. Here's my question. I want to call some Functions everytime a new bar or candle occours on the chart. Are there any predefined functions or methods to do this?

Thanks in advance

When the bar opening time changes you can see that there must be a new bar.

In this article we take a specially simple example of checking new bar on a chart, that was transformed into rather powerful and versatile tool. What tool? Find out in this article.
