In my indicator I'm using ArraySetAsSeries(Buffer,true); for series access. If I access the buffer from my EA with iCustom how can I access the series order correctly?‌ Thanks.‌
In indicators  close[] is provided by OnCalculate() function. ‌Can I get close[] array from my EA?‌ Thanks.‌
How could I initialize a static member of a inner class? I could not get information about that in the documentation nor in the forum. ‌ class Outter { static bool logical; public: class Inner { int integer; static float real; };...
I am currently subscribed to the signal <Removed> which is supposed to be incredibly accurate (99%) on a floating spread account through avatrade.  Yet I have seen multiple small losses develop which don't show up on his track record.  Previously I had the same issue with other signals.  These...

This happened because I asked the developer to give me a short description of all...

So I have an indicator and I print some stuff to the chart in OnInit().  It doesn't need to occur regularly.  Is there a way to call OnInit() from the chart?  To reload the indicator I guess.  I was thinking Refresh would do it, but no.    Thanks.  
Hello, I have recently started transitioning from MT4 to MT5 because of some extra possibilities offered by the MT5 environment. However one point seem critical to be: the ability to use real historical tick data in backtests. On Metatrader 4, some external apps like Tickstory or Birt's CSV2FST...
Hi, I‌'ve bought an EA trade copier on utilities which works perfectly for copying trades from different sources. The thing is, the quality of the sources is completely different from one to the other. And with the one I bought, you can scale lot size to all trades but not by source. So I'd like to...

So recently I've been playing around with MT5 and MQL5, before that I wrote some very basic MT4 EAs, but never tried writing one for MT5. The first thing I've noticed is how complicated everything seems, as an example in MQL4 in order to save RSI indicator data to a variable only one simple line of...

HEY guys i have been trying to create an expert advisor on mql5 and  tried to copy the ea code that i want ( it's been automatically created because on mql5 you can creat an ea without writing a code so can i copy what i've been working on and simply paste it on mql4 i have tried but it didn't work...
I'm trying to build a first EA, code below, but it doesn't execute any trades. I know its very simple, but logically I think this should buy and sell. I'm trying to only use code that I understand. I'd appreciate it if anyone had any feedback!
