hi,

i am getting the following error when trying to wait for the terminal:



Clearly, the terminal is up and running correctly. I have just launched it with the \portable argument.

Any idea of why this is happening?

Hey guys, I would just like to point out a slight bug that I found in the MetaTrader5 package for Python3.

There is an error on the data received from the MT5CopyRatesFromPos function, as the "low" price always seem to be higher than all other prices.

Example:

MT5Rate(time=datetime.datetime(2019, 9, 20, 14, 57), open=49.79, low=49.9, high=49.79, close=49.9, tick_volume=12, spread=1, real_volume=3800)

I tried to validate the data with MT5 graphs and apparently, the MT5Rate "high" field is switched with the "low".

If your method depend on these fields, be careful as they are presented backwards.

You might try and grab an XML datafeed directly to minimize delay's.

You can also look around for one of the many API's and use JSON calls.

The announcement -

----------------

New MetaTrader 5 Platform beta build 2245: DirectX functions for 3D visualization in MQL5 and symbol settings in Strategy Tester 

MQL5: Fixed time operations in the MetaTrader module for Python integration. Now all output data use the time of the trading server to which the terminal is connected.

MetaEditor: Added ability to compile C/C++ and Python projects directly from MetaEditor. Now, multi-lingual projects can be managed using the built-in editor.

The library is not getting installed or even upgraded. The current version I am using is 5.0.4 and the latest is 5.0.8.

This is the log. What should I do?
