Could MT4/5 offer "Custom Time Period" in the next update?
It would be nice to be able to test and attach indicators or expert advisors on tick and second charts.
MT4/5 are missing tick and second charts.
You can already create your own Custom charts, to be what ever you want, be it Ticks, Seconds, Renko, Kase, Constant Range, etc.
I want them to be under Timeframes.
Where you want them to appear is irrelevant. Being able to achieve different types of charts for viewing and for back-testing is what you have requested, and that is already possible. Maybe it might not be exactly what you envision or entail extra steps or a different skill set, but that does not negate the fact that they are already possible on MT5 in the latest builds.
On MT4 too, it is possible and are called "Offline Charts"!
I want to be able to attach indicator and EA directly on live chart, not offline.
You cannot attach indicator and EA directly on the chart.
double iMA( string symbol, // symbol int timeframe, // timeframe int ma_period, // MA averaging period int ma_shift, // MA shift int ma_method, // averaging method int applied_price, // applied price int shift // shift );
What I mean is that there is no tick and seconds here:
unless PERIOD_CURRENT works?
Does PERIOD_CURRENT works?
