Using cloud storage services for data exchange between terminals 


Cloud technologies are becoming more popular in the modern world. We are able to use paid or free storage services of various sizes. But is it possible to use them in practical trading? This article proposes a technology for exchanging data between terminals using cloud storage services.

You may ask, why we need a cloud storage for this when we already have solutions for a direct connection between terminals. But I think, this approach has a number of advantages. First, a provider remains anonymous: users get access to a cloud server instead of the provider's PC. Thus, the provider's computer is protected from virus attacks, and it does not have to be permanently connected to the internet. It should connect only to send messages to the server. Second, a cloud may contain virtually unlimited number of providers. And third, as their number of users increases, providers do not have to improve their computing capacities.

Let's use the free cloud storage of 15 GB provided by Google as an example. This is more than enough for our objectives.

emails when my account takes a trade

  1. Yes, there is a manual. It is called "Help" annd you get it from pressing F1 or selecting it from the Menu. It is also available online at https://www.metatrader5.com/en/terminal/help

  2. Without using any code, you can receive "Push" notifications via an Mobile app:



  3. If you can't use "Push Notification" or if you have to have it via emails, then you will have to use code (via an Expert Advisor) to send you that information, but you will also have to enable the email settings:

Experts: Mail All Order Status Periodically

...

1° You have to configure gmail/gmx to allow external application.

2° Configure your MT4


And by the way it was ALWAYS working (except maybe on some build for a short time).

MQL5 Cookbook: Developing a Multi-Currency Expert Advisor with Unlimited Number of Parameters



The multi-currency Expert Advisor considered in the previous article "MQL5 Cookbook: Multi-Currency Expert Advisor - Simple, Neat and Quick Approach", can be very useful if the number of symbols and trading strategy parameters used is small. However, there is a restriction on the number of input parameters of an Expert Advisor in MQL5: they should be no more than 1024.

And even though this number will very often be sufficient, it is very inconvenient to use such a huge list of parameters. Every time a change or optimization of parameters for a given symbol is required, you have to search parameters for that specific symbol in the long parameter list.

In this article, we will create a pattern that uses a single set of parameters for optimization of a trading system, while allowing for unlimited number of parameters. The list of symbols will be created in a standard text file (*.txt). Input parameters for each symbol will also be stored in files.

It needs to be mentioned here that the Expert Advisor will work on one symbol in the normal operation mode but you will be able to test it in the Strategy Tester on a variety of selected symbols (on each symbol separately).

It would, in fact, be even more convenient to create the symbol list directly in the Market Watch window, considering that it even allows for saving ready made symbol sets. We could even make the Expert Advisor to get the symbol list in the Market Watch window directly from the Strategy Tester. But unfortunately, it is currently not possible to access the Market Watch window from the Strategy Tester, so we will have to create the symbol list manually in advance or using a script.

We have already implemented a new global georeferenced system of the messenger to be instead of the current one. Soon we will roll out.

There all this will be: the exchange of files, screenshots, sound, etc.

More to follow: there will be new MetaEditor with new group-work and with projects.

I'm really confused when i create a new order its nowhere near the actual market price its always about 5  pips away, when i click buy surely it should be right at the market price, so I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong?

Are you talking about spread?
For forex pairs as 5 pips in 5 digit price? (50 points)?

Spread related to the brokers so if you do not like the spread in 50 points - change the broker.

In this examle (MT5, MetaQuotes-Demo server) the spread for EURUSD = 5 (not 50 as in your case):

For example - right mouse click on any symbol in Market Watch - Specification - to see the spread.
This is the spread for EURUSD on the other broker -
