William Roeder:
Neither, TP/SL are both prices.

You can calculate the price based on a points value. So my question is still when will metaquotes get this added to their platform. 

Platforms such as ActTrader which is really old and Ctrader both have these features.

SImple 10 pip SL and 30 pip TP added in the options would be great!

Good afternoon, I just updated the MT5 (build 2450) of Broker ModalMais (BR) and I believe I found a small but annoying BUG.


1- in the Tools menu -> Options -> Chart -> "Show History Trades" is OFF.



2- in the Right Button Menu on the Trades tab -> Show on Charts -> "Auto Update" is OFF.



-->> BUT every time I reopen the platform, the annoying arrows from Operations History reappear on the charts.

SOLUTION found:

It was deactivated in each chart, through the New menu on the right button on the Chart, "Trade History".


PS: Put the Menu (-> Right button on the Trades tab -> Show on Charts -> "Option to include the arrows again") of operations back.

Sometimes it is necessary to place them on the chart again.

Boa tarde, acabei de fazer a atualização do MT5 (build 2450) do Broker ModalMais(BR) e acredito ter encontrado um pequeno mas incomodo BUG.
1- no menu Tools -> Options -> Chart -> "Show History Trades" está DESATIVADO.
2- no Menu Botão Direito na aba Trades -> Show on Charts -> "Auto Update" está DESATIVADO.

MAS toda vez que reabro a plataforma, as incomodas setas do Histórico de Operações volta a reaparecer nos gráficos.

SOLUÇÃO encontrada:
Foi desativar em cada gráfico, através do Novo menu no botão direito sobre o Gráfico, "Trade History".

Good to see plenty of improvements in the new build.


My previously error free project now reports a number of function template compilation errors for functions defined like this, under a class CReportTool

   template<typename TSymbol,typename TOrder>
   void              CalculateStatistics(CProfitCurve* pProfitCurve,CClosedOrderList<TSymbol,TOrder>* pClosedOrders);
   template<typename TSymbol,typename TOrder>
   bool              ReportClosedTrades(CClosedOrderList<TSymbol,TOrder>* pClosedOrders, const string strSheet);
   template<typename TSymbol>
   bool              ReportSymbols(CSymbolArray<TSymbol>* pSymbols,const string strSheet);

These functions are definitely defined and implemented the same, but I get :-

    Error - "member function already defined with different parameters"

then when they are called :-

    Error - "ambiguous call to overloaded function with the same parameters

    could be one of 2 functions(s)"

This then lists two identical functions 

<edit>

When I manually edit in the template replacements, the project compiles fine.  But I do want the template feature to make the project more generic.

Hi,

A BIG AND VERY IMPORTANT BUG : commissions still don't work in the backtester.

Commissions are crucial for developing scalping EA's and take a lot of money of the final profits that finally can lead to a downgoing curve while the backtester shows an upgoing curve. This makes ALL backtests and optimalisations UNRELIABLE !

Please solve this problem !!!!


Thx for your efforts anyway,

Danny

Hello there:

Please add more features for Metaeditor, especially the Keyboard commands.

for example, use CTRL+Delete to delete a line, CTRL+Back to delete a word.

thank you.

I confirm the same bug from @gagupa. The options "show trade history" and "auto update" stop working in build 2450. It's annoying. Please fix it.
