I have done my backtesting on the expertMAMA with optimization that is built into the MT5 platform and have let it run with the same criteria on a demo account and have found it to be suprisingly profitable.

Hi, I´m looking for a way to read out values of indicators, like RSI or average movement, to try out scripting an expert advisor. Anyone know how to do that? I am beginner/advanced-beginner in mysql, so I´d be grateful for an example script code. Thanks!
MQL4 manual states that: "An Advisor starts to run with every incoming tick for a given symbol. The Advisor will not be launched for a new, tick if it is processing the previous one at this moment (i.e., the Advisor has not completed its operation yet)." My question is it possible to overcome this...

Hi All,   When in the strategy tester I change the levrerage to 1:500 and 1:100 or any option in the drop down and it has no effect on my profits, why??   MQL Support  told me it is because I dont use the levrerage value in my lot calculation but when searching for...
Ok, I'm having 2 issues, first, when Adjust_sl_ap is true the EA should adjust SL to average price since im scaling in positions this would be PositionGetDouble(POSITION_CURRENT_PRICE) right?? and secondly, when adjust_sl_ap is false it should use a trailing position, but for some reason trailing...

Hello all. I am trying to put together an EA that uses Limit Pending Orders. This is the function used. As one can see, it is the exact same as the function in the avoitenko EA, except ORDER_TYPE_BUY_STOP has been changed to ORDER_TYPE_BUY_LIMIT. The function is only called when the current tick...
Hello All, I am new to programming and have a couple of easy questions. 1. Is it better (or even possible), to have one EA scan for conditions and make trades on many pairs, or do I need a chart window for each time frame? 2. I read somewhere it is possible that if you have two EA's running at...
Is any example code for this purpose. thanks

In MT4's ticket-based system, it was fairly easy to manually close one EA's position if I had multiple EA's trading the same pair on the same account. e.g. EA #1 places EURUSD SELL order for 0.1 lots @ 1.30000, EA #2 places EURUSD SELL order for 0.1 lots @ 1.29000 and EA #3 places EURUSD SELL order...
Running Strategy Tester. I place 2 trades in succesion for the same pair. The only difference is the takeprofit level. In the Journal the result is: 2012.01.08 00:05:50 Core 1 2011.09.21 21:35:40 order performed buy 1.00 at 1.00818 [#4 buy 1.00 AUDUSD at 1.00818]...
What is a simple method to figure out that the last trade done was a loss?
It would be great if it were possible to script execution of metatester, through the CLI. So, one could call the exe, pass it a .set file, and have it back-test a .mqh file and output the results to a log file.. c:\>metatester64.exe /run MyExpert.mq5 /set MyExpertSettings.set /logfile MyExpert.log...

ike a lot of other people in this forum I am having serious problems understanding what "invalid stops" means (and the infamous 4756 error).
