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...

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...

  MQL5 (1)
There are quite a few things to relearn in MQL5. Sometimes its a struggle. But there are also great benefits. One feature i absolutely love is the "struct". It makes returning several different values and data types from a function so simple and elegant. Kudos.
Hello eveyrone (and merry christmas !) I'm really starting with mt5, so I don't have much knowledge. I guess it will appear as a very basic question, but here it is: Let's say I want to create a robot which will will automatically buy EURUSD and then sell it after 1 hour. And then repeat that....
Creating a new library with a simple test function and use it in an EA does not work now. Some month ago I converted a MQL4 library containing a logging funktion.

Hi, can somebody please tell me if this tutorial on access sql database from metatrader would be compatible with an MQL4 script ( and SQL server 2008)? http://www.codeproject.com/KB/database/MetatraderDLL.aspx originally written for mql5 but my script is in mql4 can I just implement it anyway?...
Hey, So I've written a pinbar EA which works fine, however I'm now trying to get it to take RSI into account when making trades... I basically want RSI(specific bar interval int) to return the RSI value at that bar based on Close Prices. I've been struggling with this a great deal as I'm having...

I'm starting in using MT and I know that MT5 is able to make automatic trading. This means that you code a program that can open and close buy/sell operations for you respected to some parameters that you've previously coded in the program. Now I've the same question for MT4.
