Source files missing

 
I started building bots and ran into a huge, very confusing issue. The MQL5 Paid for indicators don't have source files. I can't load executable files into bot building programs. This doesn't make any sense. These indicators are created for use on MT5. a main feature of which is EAs and back testing and automated trading. Does anyone know of a tool I can use to build bots with executable files only or software to generate source files for executables.

  1. No source code required.

    Just embed the other indicator(s) inside your indicator/EA. Add the CI(s) to your code as a resource.
              Use the publicly released code - MQL5 programming forum (2017)
              Resources - MQL4 Reference

    Be aware that using resources is 40x times slower than using CIs directly.
              A custom indicator as a resource - MQL4 programming forum (2019)

    Also make use there are no spaces in the path.

  2. Chatgpt (the worst), EA builder, EA Builder Pro, EATree, Etasoft forex generator, Forex Strategy Builder, ForexEAdvisor, ForexRobotAcademy.com, forexsb, FX EA Builder, fxDreema, Forex Generator, FxPro, Molanis, Octa-FX Meta Editor, Online Forex Expert Advisor Generator, Strategy Builder FX, Strategy Quant, Visual Trader Studio, MQL5 Wizard, etc., are all the same. You will get something quick, but then you will spend a much longer time trying to get it right, than if you learned the language up front, and then just wrote it.

    1. Since you haven't learned MQL4/5, therefor there is no common language for us to communicate.
      If we tell you what you need, you can't code it.
      If we give you the code, you don't know how to integrate it into yours.
      We are willing to HELP you when you post your attempt (using Code button) and state the nature of your problem, but we are not going to debug your hundreds of lines of code. You are essentially going to be on your own.

    2. Chatgpt
      1. Mixing MT4 and MT5 code together.
      2. Creating multiple OnCalculate/OnTick functions.
      3. OnCalculate returning a double.
      4. Filling buffers with zero in OnInit (they have no size yet). Setting buffer elements to zero but not setting Empty Value to correspond.
      5. Calling undefined functions.
      EA builder makes bad code:
      1. Counting up while closing multiple orders.
      2. New bar code: Bars is unreliable (Max bars in chart), volume is unreliable (miss ticks.) Always use time.
      3. Not adjusting for 4/5 digit brokers, TP/SL and slippage.
      4. Not adjusting for ECN brokers. pre-Build 500)
      5. Not checking return codes.
      EATree
      uses objects on chart to save values — not persistent storage (files or GV+Flush.) No recovery (crash/power failure.)
      FX EA Builder makes bad code:
      1. Not checking return codes.
      2. Loosing open tickets on terminal restart. No recovery (crash/power failure.)
      3. Not adjusting stops for the spread.
      4. Using OrdersTotal directly.
      FOREXEADVISOR STRATEGY BUILDER makes bad code:
      1. Non-updateing global variables.
      2. Compilation errors.
      3. Not checking return codes.
      ForexEAdvisor makes bad code:
      1. Not checking return codes.
      2. Not reporting errors.
