Hi Guys,

Anyone could help me with this?

I`ve done a simple EMA Cross signal, after that I used MQL5 Wizard to built my EA...

When I try to run the EA it show the following errors:

CExpertBase::SetPriceSeries: changing of timeseries is forbidde
CExpertBase::SetOtherSeries: changing of timeseries is forbidden

Debugging the code I could see that the exception throws in this method of the Created EA:

//--- Tuning of all necessary indicators
   if(!ExtExpert.InitIndicators())
     {
      //--- failed
      printf(__FUNCTION__+": error initializing indicators");
      ExtExpert.Deinit();
      return(-9);
     }
//--- ok


I enter the method debbuging the code and I`ve seen that inside ExpertBase.mqh there is a check of init_phase, that if isnt iqual to Validation it is impossible to change the timeseries:

bool CExpertBase::SetPriceSeries(CiOpen *open,CiHigh *high,CiLow *low,CiClose *close)
  {
//--- check the initialization phase
   if(m_init_phase!=INIT_PHASE_VALIDATION)
     {
      printf(__FUNCTION__+": changing of timeseries is forbidden");
      return(false);
     }
//--- check pointers
   if((IS_OPEN_SERIES_USAGE  && open==NULL) ||
      (IS_HIGH_SERIES_USAGE  && high==NULL) ||
      (IS_LOW_SERIES_USAGE    &&  low==NULL) ||
      (IS_CLOSE_SERIES_USAGE && close==NULL))
     {
      printf(__FUNCTION__+": NULL pointer");
      return(false);
     }
   m_open =open;
   m_high =high;
   m_low  =low;
   m_close=close;
//--- ok
   return(true);
  }


I didnt understand this error because I`m using MQL5 wizard and the code was generated automatically.

Do you want to try out a trading strategy while wasting no time for programming? In MQL5 Wizard you can simply select the type of trading signals, add modules of trailing positions and money management - and your work is done! Create your own implementations of modules or order them via the Jobs service - and combine your new modules with existing ones.

Hello Guys,

1. Using MQL5 Wizard I compile successfully an EA using  SignalCBC_WS_MFI.mqh class

2. When I try to run the EA it show the following errors: 
CExpertBase::SetPriceSeries: changing of timeseries is forbidden
CExpertBase::SetOtherSeries: changing of timeseries is forbidden 

3. Client v5.00 build540 (11/11/2011)

Thanks for your help.
