Hi everybody. How can I incorporate fundamental economic data (Such as "actual", "forecast" or "previous" data of a news release) into an Expert Advisor? Which platform (MT4 or MT5) has that capability? What function() to call in MQL4 or MQL5 such data from a website such as Forex Factory? Thank you in advance.

Welcome,

  • Usually people who can't code don't receive free help on this forum, though it could happen if you are lucky, be patient.
  • If you show your attempts and describe well your problem, you will most probably receive an answer from the community.
  • If you don't want to learn to code, nothing bad, you can either look at the Codebase if something free already exists, or in the Market for paid products (sometimes free also).
  • Finally, you also have the option to hire a programmer in the Freelance section.
Good luck.

A robot can not trade fundamental only technicals. But you can setup time like 5 minutes after news and then let it trade the technicals.

Robot can trade low, or medium or/and high impacted news event (for example - trading high impacted news events only) so in this way we can trade fundamental. But it is also related to the forecasting concerning which news event is high impacted (big movement of the price is expected) ...
