Hi guys,


I'm new on MQL programming and just tried to make an EA with an moving average applied to an RSI.


Before I continue, I'd like you to check the code and tell me whether I did it right.


Not sure whether I have to build an array, hope not...


TIA


 double RSI = iRSI(NULL,0,14,PRICE_CLOSE,1);
  double RSIPreviousPeriod = iOBV(NULL,0,PRICE_CLOSE,2);
  double MARSI = iMA(NULL,PERIOD_CURRENT,MovingAverage,0,MODE_SMA,RSI,1);
  double MARSIPreviousPeriod = iMA(NULL,PERIOD_CURRENT,MovingAverage,0,MODE_SMA,RSI,2);

Looks right. Tell me if it works. I'm also working on something similar

In fact, it is simple.

Pay attention to the help: iMA and parameter "type of price or handle"

int  iMA(
   string               symbol,            // symbol name
   ENUM_TIMEFRAMES      period,            // period
   int                  ma_period,         // averaging period
   int                  ma_shift,          // horizontal shift
   ENUM_MA_METHOD       ma_method,         // smoothing type
   ENUM_APPLIED_PRICE   applied_price      // type of price or handle
   );


You need: create an iRSI indicator handle, create an iMA indicator handle in iMA (in place applied_price ) insert iRSI handle.


I did the same: calculated iMA by iRVI indicator - code example iMA calculated by iRVI
