Hi all,

I hope you are well. I have a question. I wonder how we can insert our EA into the mql5.com market if we use an extarnal indicator.
I want to insert my EA in to the market however, I use an external indicator. Is this a problem?

Why you not make the indicator calculation inside the expert?

making this robot on mql5 is a great idea because thanks to this it would be easier for everybody to perform 100% quality backtest and if all results would be confirmed with even half-similar results, then EA is brilliant and I think that many people would buy it in it :)

    The indicator isn't part of your product. Therefor product can't use it except when running on your machine. Why does this surprise you?
    Just embed the other indicator(s) inside your indicator/EA. Add the CI(s) to your code as a resource.
              Use the publicly released code - Expert Advisors and Automated Trading - MQL5 programming forum

    Don't try do that. There are no buffers, no IndicatorCounted() or prev_calculated. No way to know if older bars have changed or been added (history update.)
    Just get the value(s) of the indicator(s) into the EA (using iCustom) and do what you want with it.
    You should encapsulate your iCustom calls to make your code self-documenting.
