Right now I'm trying to trigger the NewTick event for an Expert Advisor attached to a chart on "open prices only" mode --which ticks for every new period for the chosen time-frame (M1, M5, M15, ...)-- so I can make use of the OnTick() function to...

Ok, here is the thing. Very simple but maybe I dont understand the concept of copybuffer in mql5 (I am new to it). Well, I understand that after you define a handle in OnInit(), and then you use the CopyBuffer() method, you copy elements from the first array to the second. However in my code...

Hi, This actually might be a silly question, but anyway - how to modify parameters of an existing indicator straight from MQL5 code? In the MQL5 reference, I only see IndicatorCreate and IndicatorRelease functions. I started wondering because obviously a user can change the indicator parameters...
