  EA Transfer (5)
Please I have an EA am using in demo trade. How can I can I transfer the EA to my real trade?
I know it is rather MQL4 question, than MQL5, but i know many developers are doing conversions from MQL5 to MQL4. After recent modifications it is pretty easy, but there is one catch. New MQL compilers (both from MT4 and MT5 that are similar) whilie compiling MQL4 strategies dont put the comments...

Hi, in my last post I asked how to change barcount in my ea code to something more reliable but was told that the barcount was fine in my code.. So I'm going to leave that now. I now have an issue with this code though. It is great and works perfectly to choose when to start and end the trading week...

In my opinion, successful method is: - Follow the trend - Use stop loss - Let profit orders go

Hello forum, good day. How can the lowest/highest point in each of the previous wave of a Moving average be detected counting from the current bar in MQL4?

In MT4, there exists a stage/state: when we switch from AccountA to AccountB, when Connection is established and init() and start() are triggered by MT4; but before the "blinnnggg" (sound) when all the historical/outstanding trades are loaded from Server. Switch Account>Establish...

I have bought a number of EAs on MQL5, and I have installed them on my MT4 running on my VPS. My question is, if I upgrade the RAM and the number of cores on my VPS, will my prior EA purchases be invalidated because the "hardware" has changed?  I hope it won't reduce the number of downloads I have...
Hi, i want to start a discussion of a topic that came into my mind while reading some articles about the latest gadgets which are offered on kickstarter.com and indigogo. Does it make sense or may it be useful to have a possibility to start a crowdfunding campaign for an Expert Advisor or...
When I issue a market by order for 1 lot of EURUSD, there will be immediate 17.00 dollars loss. I believe this is due to the markup that brokers put on top of market price.  I'd like to set the markup(Is this also called spread?) to minimum value during the EA test, e.g.: 2 points. 0.2...
