# stochastic code

20

hi please can somebody help me with my first bit of coding ever. its based on the step by step guide for beginners www.mql5.com/en/articies/100 I've taken out the ma and adx indicators and I think i've but in a stochastic. The ea will run in he tester but doesn't open any trades
