You should use the function Double val = iCustom (NULL, 0, "Name_of_indicstor", 13,1,0). Here 13 is the number of the indicator buffer. You can find out this number if you start the indicator and hover on the graph with the mouse pointer over the indicator point. You will see something like "Value3: 1.09573". Here, 3 is the number of the buffer. However, if you do not have programming skills, then you can not do it. Contact Freelance for assistance.

  1. Why did you post your MT4 question in the Root / MT5 General section instead of the MQL4 section, (bottom of the Root page?) General rules and best pratices of the Forum. - General - MQL5 programming forum

  2. Just get the value of the indicator into the EA and do what you want with it. Detailed explanation of iCustom - MQL4 and MetaTrader 4 - MQL4 programming forum

  3. You have only four choices:
    We're not going to code it for you (although it could happen if you are lucky or the problem is interesting.) We are willing to help you when you post your attempt (using SRC) and the nature of your problem. No free help

I'm sorry for mistake but this is my first post and i'm not skilled in this forum and it's very difficult to translate everything with my ''scolastic'' english.

I don't want to you code it for me, my question was only if was it possible because i readed about programs for codification etc.. i know that's not easy, but who like easy things? ;)
