I've A suggestion to add the expected profit below ( take profit ) and expected loss below ( stop loss ) and the reserved margin below ( volume ) in the amount of the balance currency on the orders window. This will help the trader a lot in choosing the appropriate deal size and risk ratio.
I hope you done it soon.😊
iTime and the other functions added in build 1860 (2018.06.14) are still not in List of MQL5 Functions - MQL5 Reference - Reference on algorithmic/automated trading language for MetaTrader 5
Hi Geek ,
I mean to add these options in the order window while choosing the position to trade at it, that will help every trader to choose the perfect volume Relative to his current balance and choose wisely the take profit and stop loss values.
During Strategy Testing my multicurrency EA working by MetaTrader 5 Platform Build 2690 (downloaded from https://www.metatrader5.com/) I have noticed the following discrepancies comparing to earlier MetaTrader 5 Platform Build:Earlier :Using my own structure for diffrent currencies (Account Currency e.g in USD, contract size 100 000)
the value of 1 point was in Account Currency e.g. for USDJPY it was e.g 1.0455 USD; e.t.c.
New Build 2690: Using the same my own structure for diffrent currencies (Account Currency e.g in USD, contract size 100 000)
the value of 1 point is in Quoted Currency (not Account Currency) e.g. for USDJPY it is now 100.0 JPY; e.t.c.I ask you if it is correct?
Your earlier Build XXXX was calculated in this way that All symbols must have tick value in account currency, but sometimes some brokers provides wrong data but that's an other matter completely.
Now the same problem has arisen (Metaquotes Demo) with other function like: OrderCalcMargin()
Earlier : (Account Currency e.g in USD, contract size 100 000, levarage 1:100) Value for 1 lot using OrderCalcMargin() e.g. for GBPUSD was 1322,02 USD ; e.t.c.
New Build 2690: (Account Currency e.g in USD, contract size 100 000, levarage 1:100)
Value for 1 lot using OrderCalcMargin() e.g. for GBPUSD now is 1000.00 GBP ; e.t.c.
I ask you if it is correct? Does the way of calculation for e.g. OrderCalcMargin() depend on broker or not?

I'm experiencing serious memory problems during optimising. When I have to do a lot of passes, the memory of my PC is completely full, my mouse pointer hardly moves. The only way to continue with optimising is stopping the optimising proces and restart it, so that the rest of the passes are processed.
These problems exists allready a very long time in the oldier releases, but in this release they became worser.
I hope the development team will tackle this very annoying problem.
I have a PC with very fast 1 TB SSD, AMD Ryzen 9 3900x, 24 cores CPU, and 32 GB DDR4 RAM.
I'm optimising over 3 years data with 1 minute bars (no tickdata).
Almost same here, backtesting is considerably slower. What took me 3h before on any timeframes is now taking me 12/14h on all the "minutes" timeframes but remains 3h on the "hours".
However memory never tends to be full (40% max).
Is there a way to downgrade ? I cannot find previous builds downloads.
Dear MetaQuotes software engineers and developers!
This comment is about an important feature request. Please consider this request because it is importantfor more advanced MetaTrader software developers. I have many hundreds of thousands of lines of MQL4and MQL5 source codes in development.
Currently the MetaTrader 4, 5 and the MetaEditor 4, 5 softwares are designed and programmed to operatingwith the the regular Windows path length limitations which is not sufficient to create very large softwareprojects with detailed structures and with enoughly appropriate directory and file names. However for examplethe new PowerShell and the Visual Studio Code softwares are operating with much longer directory and filepathes and pathnames without errors even in Windows 7. Perhaps this issue can be solved only with the C/C++development of the MetaTrader and the MetaEditor softwares. I want for example that the MetaEditor IDEand correspondingly the MetaTrader client terminal will be operational with longer pathes and pathnames thanthe regular Windows API path length limitation. I usually set up logical drives with drive letters with the psubstutility but even with this the Windows API path length limitation can be an issue in a large projects. I want thesolution to operate in Windows 7 too.It is also important that the typedef does not only work with function pointers. Please implement this feature!Please consider my feature requests and try to solve them!Many thanks for considering my requests!Yours sincerely: László Müller, Dombóvár, Hungary.
