New article Selection and navigation utility in MQL5 and MQL4: Adding auto search for patterns and displaying detected symbols has been published:
In this article, we continue expanding the features of the utility for collecting and navigating through symbols. This time, we will create new tabs displaying only the symbols that satisfy some of the necessary parameters and find out how to easily add custom tabs with the necessary sorting rules.
Many trading strategies require constant analysis of symbols when
searching for various market entry patterns. While searching and
analyzing symbols may be useful in terms of gaining insight into the
market, sometimes, you may want a list of symbols featuring a necessary
parameter to be simply displayed to you. In this article, we will try to
develop such a tool for some intraday trading patterns.
More specifically, today we will expand the capabilities of our
utility by adding the auto sorting of symbols by specific parameters. To
do this, we will create a series of tabs searching for symbols
currently featuring certain trading patterns: parabolic curves, air
levels (flat ranges), gaps, etc. We will also learn how to add custom
tabs, of course provided that you know the basics of MQL programming.
As a result, when launching a new version of the utility, you can see new auto sorting tabs apart from homework ones:
