Scaling in Using Limit Orders
You open an initial position and set one
or more Limit orders in the same direction with increasing lot size. As
Limit orders trigger, new Limit orders are set until the position is
closed at Take Profit. When the position is closed at Take Profit, the
remaining pending orders are deleted.
Stop and Reverse
You open an initial position and set the
opposite Stop order with an increased lot size at the Stop Loss level of
the initial position. When the position is closed at Stop Loss, the
pending order kicks in a new opposite Stop order is again set at its
Stop Loss level, and so on until the position is closed at Take Profit.
When the position is closed at Take Profit, the remaining pending order
You open an initial position and if it
appears to be winning, you increase its volume (scale in) and move the
Stop Loss to Breakeven. If the position is closed at Take Profit, it is
by then expected to have reached a quite large volume, and consequently
profit. If however the Stop Loss triggers during the intermediary phase,
there will simply be no profit.
You open a market position. Closing at
Stop Loss is followed by a new opening with an increased lot size, and
so on until the position is closed at Take Profit. This strategy is
similar to scaling in using Limit orders.

I decided to create this thread to help to myself and to the others to start with Metatrader 5.I am experienced in MT4 and in forex in general (i hope : ) but we traders really need to collect all the information about it in one place.I will make some posts about 'how I am starting with MT5'. :)

An Example of a Trading System Based on a Heiken-Ashi Indicator
With the appearance of candlestick chart
in the U.S., more than two decades ago, there was a revolution in the
understanding of how the forces of bulls and bears work on the Western
markets. Candlesticks became a popular trading instrument, and traders
began working with them in order to ease the reading of the charts. But
the interpretation of candlesticks differ from one another.
One of these methods, which changes the
traditional candlestick chart, and facilitates its perception, is called
the Heikin Ashi technology.
Analyzing Candlestick Patterns
Plotting of candlestick charts and
analysis of candlestick patterns is an amazing line of technical
analysis. The advantage of candlesticks is that they represent data in a
way that it is possible to see the momentum within the data.
Candlesticks give a vivid mental picture
of trading. After reading and a little practice, candlesticks will be
part of your analytical arsenal. Japanese candlestick charts can help

Creating an Expert Advisor, which Trades on a Number of Instruments
The technical side of implementing the
program code in order for a single Expert Advisor, launched on a single
chart, to be able to trade with different financial assets at the same
time. In general, this was not a problems even in MQL4. But only with
the advent of the MetaTrader 5 client terminal, traders finally got the
opportunity to perform a full analysis of the work of such automates,
using strategy testers.
So now multi-currency automates will
become more popular than ever, and we can forecast a surge of interest
in the construction of such trading systems. But the main problem of
implementation of such robots is in the fact that their dimensions in
the program code expand, at best, in an arithmetic progression, and this
is not easy to embrace for a typical programmer.
In this article we will write a simple
multi-currency Expert Advisor, in which the structure flaws are, if not
absent, then at least minimized.
