Hello Everyone, Been testing many EA's and some give same results as live accounts and some are totally different. Here are the questions for those long time traders and coders. Could EA here in MQL5 be trusted?If not, how do we avoid this? And why do MQL5 allow this? Do MQL5 screen sellers and...
Hello, I was wondering whether anybody could help with something that's really beginning to wind me up... Whenever I backtest an EA the system runs it, however no results pull through.

Hello, I've finally write an ea multipair for MT5 (5 pairs). But when I launch a BT with "Every tick" model I see that the local agent is used only for 0.2%. Obviously the BT is dramatically slow.

Hello. In my EA I use comments to identify my orders. However when I partially close an order, it seems, that it closes the old order and opens new order with the remaining lot size, but the comment is no longer there. Is there a way how to carry on the comment when partially closing an order?
After a week I still have not been able to get my EA produce an entry in VPS mode. The EA is working OK Live on my computer.

Hello I recently subscribed to a signal provider and have it all set up in MT4. I've checked the journal and noticed signals are being "skipped" because "no symbol found". For example, a buy order on EURUSD. My broker lists each symbol with .r suffix, e.g. EURSUD.r. Is this the problem? How do i fix...

I'm pretty sure I saw an EA a while ago (probably a year ago). I think it was a free EA. It checked the account and closed trades that were in a loss, but at the same time closing one that was in profit with around the same amount. So, if I had one trade with -10$ then it would close another trade...
