I know that he could have more questions and this is the forum, but I have no obligation to do full work for someone. I can help with small code example, but I do not have to program full robot for free.

Oh sorry guys didnt want to heat up anybody, That's awesome Janusz i would only like to know how to change the code to close the trades at the very end of the month, and should i paste it at the end of the EA code or in a specific spot?

I'm very grateful for the support thanks.

Please understand, that since you know nothing about coding it will be impossible to tell you how to insert the code in the correct place. It would be equivalent to someone who has no mechanical experience or knowledge asking how to add a turbo-booster to his car.

@Janusz Trojca's code helps those that already have some knowledge of coding but is completely useless to you if you don't know where to place it. So, I suggest you open up a freelance job request and have him or another help you out with the problem while compensating them for their work.

Is it easy (or difficult) to …?

Fernando Carreiro, 2017.08.30 21:43

This post could be considered a “rant”, but I would like to take the opportunity to relay to those that ask similar questions, the difficulty involved in answering such a simple query – “Is it is easy (or difficult) to …?”

  • “Easy” would imply that anyone can do it, but that is obviously not the case.
  • “Easy” depends on the ability, skill, knowledge and experience of the one that is tasked to do it.
  • That ability, skill, knowledge and experience took time to establish and it had a cost, and if you sum it all up, it can be quite high.
  • So, “easy” means that if you don’t know how to do it yourself (or not able to do it yourself), then you will have to “compensate” someone else to do it for you.
  • You will be “compensating” him or her for all the effort and cost that went into acquiring the ability, skill, knowledge and experience and NOT for the actual time spent carrying out the task.

So, even if the task is just changing one line of code; remember that you are “compensating” the person for his knowledge and skills and not for just one line of code.

The same applies to those that request for something “simple” to be done for free. It is NEVER “simple”. If it were that “simple” then you would be able to do it yourself.

So, respect the hard work and effort the coder went through to gain his skills and knowledge and “compensate” him/her for it. Wanting it for free is being totally disrespectful!

PS! In conclusion, learn to use the Freelance Jobs section and recognise and respect those more skilled, knowledgeable and experienced than you!

EDIT: Please note that I use the term "compensation" and not "payment", because there are many ways to "compensate" for work done. Sometimes a coder will be "compensated" with gained or shared knowledge instead of money, or by an exchange of ideas or other things. It is not always about the money but it is about the "compensation"!
