Hello,

I am trying to compare few signals, and I am struggling with equity drawdown comparison. On signal page I can see maximal eqity drawdown in percent and value, and that's all. If signal trades many pairs - I want to know maximal drawdown for each pair separately, not just total sum. Is that possible? Also, is it possible to get maximal equity drawdown in certain period, not in whole history?

After further research I suppose its impossible, but it would be great to have these features. I hope somebody from developer team will see this, and it will be implemented.

Meanwhile I will try to do program that downloads trades.csv on minute basis for further manual processing, now its best solution I can come up with.

So, its possible to create small program that does http requests to get equity data from trading.csv for signal. But first its required to implement authorization using mql5.com login html form via post using https, and then maintain same session and get trading data with just http. Also its mandatory to follow first redirect after submit of login data.

Few tips:

1) one can be banned because of too frequent http requests, and will be banned by IP, and will receive http error 403 instead of portal page in any browser on same computer where ban happened, maybe this is forever for me now :(. I am now waiting for service desk reply for request to unban me.

2) trading.csv seems to be updated only once per minute on server, so there is no need for frequent requests for it.
