Does MT5 support strategy based on fundamentals ? if not, when will? thanks.
Is there an official method to get the fundamental data? not via API,DLL,etc
for example, How can i get economic calender data?
'Events' objects show on the chart which I have read allows you to approach economic releases in a programmatic way directly with MQL5/MT5.
I have not tried hooking into these objects yet -- I didn't see much for documentation when I last studied the standard class CChartObject. However, by using OnChartEvent() and checking further the circumstance CHARTEVENT_OBJECT_CHANGE, it seems relatively simple. Get the object type using the id of the object that changed - an object of type "Event" will apparently change when news occurs by outputting the result into description property. ... https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/constants/chartconstants/enum_chartevents
Hope this helps!
Edit: I just noticed - there doesn't seem to be a way to retrieve the forecast numbers... which throws a wrench in perhaps the most reasonable way to approach news trading. Any comments?
Edit2: If you're not looking to build a program for working with news I apologize. MT5 has added the economic data to the Toolbox window.
MQL functions for access to economic calendar events (especially date or priority or currency or its values) - this would definitely improve possibilities of news trading and/or would make avoiding EA trading during news much easier
