Good article -
Building an Expert Advisor using separate modules
When developing indicators, Expert Advisors and scripts, developers often need to create various pieces of code, which are not directly
related to the trading strategy. For example, such code may concern Expert Advisor operation schedule: daily, weekly or monthly. As a
result, we will create an independent project, which can interact with the trading logic and other components using a simple
interface. With the least effort, such a schedule can be further used in custom developed Expert Advisors and indicators
without serious modifications. In this article we will try to apply a system approach to Expert Advisor creation using blocks.
We will also consider an interesting possibility, which will emerge as a result of our work.
The article is intended for beginners.
