Hi,

I am trying to learn how to create a simple robot. Basically as an example I want it to buy when the daily price closes above a MA (144 as example) and then close when the closing prices closes Below the MA, but when I test it I don't get any trades and I get the following

2018.05.24 16:24:56.540 There were 1 passes done during optimization, 1 results have been discarded as insignificant.

Code as below, cant figure out what I am doing wrong, thanks and appreciate the help.


#include <stdlib.mqh>

#include <stderror.mqh>



//--- indicator settings

#property indicator_chart_window

#property indicator_buffers 2



#property indicator_type1 DRAW_ARROW

#property indicator_width1 1

#property indicator_color1 0xFFAA00

#property indicator_label1 "Buy"



#property indicator_type2 DRAW_ARROW

#property indicator_width2 1

#property indicator_color2 0xFFAA00

#property indicator_label2 "Buy"



//--- indicator buffers
