Hello,

I have an Expert Advisor which is using different external Indicators.

Now I have seen that it's just possible to sell an EA in the MQL Market as one ex4 file. So it's not possible to attach external Indicators.

What i the easiest way to implement the external Indicators in to the EA ex4 file?

Would be glad to get some help.

Moving indicator logic into an EA is possible but it requires good knowledge of MQL and understanding of the indicator workings. That is, a lot of things that the MQL engine does for you in your indicator would have to be carried out on behalf of the EA. Things like indicator buffer resizing/shifting, line/window drawing. If you got this, then what about persistence of data, if your EA gets reloaded how to restore the indicator buffers?

I think it's doable for some simple indicators like RSI, MA etc, but generally speaking it's a tough job.

Maybe you are looking for the #resource directive?
