Hi,  Sorry for the newbie question. I just wonder why there are not input parameters for Strategy Tester, Inputs tab. Ex:   1) Let say i chose Advisors¥ExpertMovingAverage.ext in Strategy Tester. 2) Then i open Inputs tab and found out that there were only 2 input parameters : Expert:...
I am wondering if there are future development on the detail analysis of the back testing report. It will be extreme useful to have the annual & monthly pips gain representation similar to the chart below.
Hello, I try to do an EA based on stochastic and MACD indicators. I wrote my code which compile well but when I test him, it doesn't work and returns nothing. I am a beginner on MQL5. Somebody could help me please... Thank you

Hi folks, I'm implementing a function to calculate volume to trade according to a fix percentage of potential loss in comparison to total equity. My problem is that im getting invalid volume since it have a lot of digits. I already tried using Mathround and mathceil/floor and it keep with a...
Does anyone know if there is an easy way to close a position at the market price?

like c++ and delphi, is there TRY...EXCEPT END code in MT5? will you plan to add it?
Dear. Is there a "trick" or something like this, to be able to use the Print() function IN the chart (in example creating text objects) in an expert advisor (not indicator), instead of regular printing in the expert/journal of toolbox window?  This can be useful for debugging. Thanks! 
Why can not save or export optimization graph and optimization results for further analysis.
Has anyone come across this issue? For some reasons MT5 tester is showing 838 trades (1,676 deals) compared to the real time trading of 437 trades during the same period. This was tested using "Every Tick" setting.
The term in my EA 'if(CopyBuffer(handle,1,0,10,zm)<0)' works as expected and returns valid array variables. When I attempt to shift the plot in my custom indicator using 'PlotIndexSetInteger(1,PLOT_SHIFT,10)' to show a future prediction, the term in my EA returns unitialised array values. Any...

I have a .dll which worked in MT4 but I get "Cannot import [function]" on Vista 64 bit, and "Cannot load [dll path]" on XP.  Are there any special steps that must be taken to make a C++ dll work with a MT5 EA?
When using code block with SymbolName() and SymbolSelect() functions, and subsequently calling for market data with the SymbolInfoDouble command, I get the error "No prices for symbol EURUSD." When I don't call the for() loop, I'm able to retrieve market info via SymbolInfoDouble() and...
From the help: "In this mode the OHLC prices of 1 minute bars are also generated...", which makes backtesting extremely slow. Is it possible to somehow disable this?  I can live with and deal with inaccuracies introduced by MT4 style open prices testing, but I cannot deal with slow backtesting...

like topic, I am waiting and waiting.....
Hi,  Sorry, I've put this suggestion in the general Forum instead of the EA one.   It would be nice to have a new backtest mode allowing to use OHLC with the current periodicity instead of 1 min "intra bar " model.  So if we select a backtest on 1H data, we only use the 1H bars to perform the...
Are there any solutions out there that are better than Virtual Order Manager to track orders within the position-centric MT5 environment https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/88 I would like to convert my current MT4 to MT5; however, MT5 does not allow simultaneous buy and sell trades. I have an...
Hey there, I don't believe my eyes but I cannot seem to find a visual mode in the mt5 strategy tester? Is my observation correct? This is a problem for me because now I cannot see what is happening, and I cannot see what is going on, and if the code is doing what it is supposed to do. Usually I...
Can you tell me were there is a matching advanced list of the events in the MT5 economic calendar? And can the "actual" feeds on the economic calendar be used as inputs to an EA?
When I run strategy tester,on my local agent, the agent cpu usage showed on "agents" tab increate quickly and the test is down with cpu usage up to 100% and status change to busy. even i run easy strategy like example moving average EA,like this: it went wrong agent status after cpu usage...
I downloaded MT5 and performed the installation. I was able to get the sample EA to work and display arrows. Every subsequent execution locks up and is not running. I did an uninstall and reinstall and it did the same thing again. The EA makes a connection then appears hung and not progressing,...
Can someone sled some light into the day light saving on the back testing data? With the data on metaquotes, is day light saving being applied? It is hard enough to develop an expert advisor, we all have to deal with all these extra factors like day light saving changes and etc. Currently, I have...
