Hi there,

 If I am planning to sell my EA on MQL5 market, can it contains custom indictors? Or do I need to create one EA with all inclusive code?

I will not list all of the new possibilities and features of the new terminal and language. They are numerous, and some novelties are worth the discussion in a separate article. Also there is no code here, written with object-oriented programming, it is a too serous topic to be simply mentioned in a context as additional advantages for developers. In this article we will consider the indicators, their structure, drawing, types and their programming details, as compared to MQL4. I hope that this article will be useful both for beginners and experienced developers, maybe some of them will find something new.

Your custom indicator should be included inside your EA code.

Thanks achidayat!

I have the same question. But how do you combine an indicator with a EA? Write into the same file? Impossible!

you can post  custom indictors to market at first. my example: i have a product:  SmartMA, and then i post another product  SmartMA on Bars that base on SmartMA.

It appears to be a bit complicated. We are thinking on a solution on how to easily include a custom indicator in an EA.

So Metaquotes is currently working on a solution. During the mean time, we have to include everything into a single code? Can someone confirm this?
