I finished reading and examinning this article Exploring Trading Strategy Classes of the Standard Library - Customizing Strategies . I am not newbie in forex and MT4, and I understand something in mql4 programming. But it was really difficult for me to understand this article about how to create my classes for my systems for example. I am suggesting to all mql5 newbies to read this article, to understand it and to make some practics to create some simple EAs - it will help a lot in case we want to create EAs based on standard indicators in MT5. By the way, I am dreaming to create EA based on BrainTrading indicators (those indicators are already available in CodeBase). But it is the other story related to custom classes for custom indicators.
Please find my EA - place myexpert2.mq5 file to experts folder (for example - to C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 5\MQL5\Experts), and signalccixx.mqh file to Signal folder (for example to C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 5\MQL5\Include\Expert\Signal). As to EA - I did everything as it was described in the article except weights and patterns as I did not want to use all the conditions for buying and selling. Reading article - you will know how to select your own condition and stop other unnecessary condition in your class.
I optimized the settings for this EA for EURUSD M15 - please find the results attached.
Using optimization results - I selected some settings and made backtesting. So, please find backtesting results attached together with set file.
I am trying to make a payment.
All wright, until the system says it's going to send a SMS message to my mobile phone... It doesn't.
can you help me ??
Some my comments.
Concerning signals ... I see some members asked about how to unsubscribe from the signals. I subscribed to some free signal 3 days ago (with no problem
so far). Just some information/topics about the signals which I collected about signals:
would i be able to purchase bonds trough meta trader stage.. i suppose i can cos on my old machine i might purchase certain parcels and some other stuff and i feel that other stuff was bonds however now i downloaded revamped meta trader and i can purchase parts anymore .. i cant recall what was it .. in any case i suppose it was alpari ..
so would you be able to let me know by what method would i be able to purchase bonds trough meta trader....
Are you talking about trading bonds? I did not trade bonds sorry so I do not have experience with it. In MT4 - some brokers are allowing some instruments or symbols. As to MT5 so Metatrader 5 is new and well developed platform. I mean:
Metatrader 5 is well-developed but new platform in any way. I am sure - many brokers will add many trading instruments - it is just a matter of time only. For now - you can check by yourself:
Just an example:
Metatrader 5 is new platform, and this platform is just started the way. But from what I see (comparing MT3/MT4 transferring to recent MT4/MT5) - this MT5 platform is having a lot of advantadges which I mentioned in the beginning of my comment. So, the brokers will have to increase their symbols/instruments in anyway. I just see silver and gold for some brokers in MT5 (which I traded for real account but for MT4 sorry).
Concerning signals ... I see some members asked about how to unsubscribe from the signals. I subscribed to some free signal 3 days ago (with no problem so far). Just some information/topics about the signals which I collected about signals:
I subscribed to the signals on Monday and got some good results:
There is some theory - we can subscribe to one signal and if we get the profit on this day so we can unsubscribe, and subscribe to the other signal to get profit on same day, unsubscribe and subscribe to 3rd signal ... do you know what is most important with this situation? All signals should be new ones (new signals ready to subscribe immediately after testing period). Some people are using this theory to trade by EAs for example. I mean: this is old theory and it works.
And one advice about the signals. Some providers are keeping the trades to be open for one day and more. So, it may be good to ask them about their signals on the forum. Of course, as I see - there are some famous well-known providers making signals for now but there are some unknown ones too. And it may be really good if signal providers will reply on the question directly on the forum. Next time, when I want to subscribe to the signal - I will open the topic on the forum and will ask signal providers to reply on my questions about open orders and so on. It will save a lot of time for me and will help me to make a correct decision about ther signals to be subscribed. Just an advice.
And some more about signals. About widgets. We can read this small article about it: MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Trading Signals Widgets I already placed Signal Widget on my google blog. Just some short instruction about how to do it (example with blogspot blog):
