Hello, newbie here to EA'S, not trading. I was hoping somebody may be able to point me in the right direction to start learning about creating/writing my own EA's (need to learn from absolute scratch). I have done bits of research but I have absolutely no idea which is the best way to go about doing it a there is lots of different tutorials etc and im not sure of which is the easiest or best. Would someone be able to tell me where i can get started, my strategies are extremly basic, nothing too technical at all. I would just like to apply a few very basic strategies across the 2,3,5,10,15, and maybe 30 minute time frames. All timeframes would be completely independant of each other ( not looking for confrimation on other time frames and execute on another time frame for example, for now anyway maybe i will later on). Is there much learning in it? Thank you very much, James

Hello,
I found very easily on google a book "how to program in MQL4" it helped me a lot to start the language.
