Hey, I am totally new in automatic trading and I have a question: I follow a signal. The trader has an equity of $1500. Last night he got 2 profit trades of $12 and $13. I have an equity of $1000, I just earned $4.90 and $5.20 by those 2 same trades. It does not seem logical to me. Is it? What can...
Hi, since yesterday, the debugger is not able to compile the project anymore, just like that. It started when I created a macro and inserted this into some source files. This was the first time when the debugger created an invalid EX5 file, while the normal compiling process created a working...

Hi, anyone an Idea? There is no additional information from MT5 and the project compiles without any errors or warnings in strict-mode. This buggy platform is really starting to annoy me, every day I find something new.  Another one is: "Pure virtual function call", this I get in the MT4 version...

It works if  printing - however, it does not work correctly with fixed lines.  I mean, lines remain linking instead of fixed .  Started with EA ..but, will code an indicator afterwards. with...
Hi, I wonder if I can test a signal, with like 50 or 100 US$? This signal <deleted>) does not say how much you need but I was thinking to allocate a percentage of money that will result in 50 or 100 US$ Is this posible or do I need to invest 1000 US$ or more in a signal? Regards, Oliver
is it possible to somehow get more than one color from user, using one input ? (where user chooses the desired colors from the standard palette) (it's possible for indicators.) EDIT : structures are not permitted as inputs. :(
Hi, I have done a mistake. I've assigned a signal to an ICMarkets account but th esignal is to assign to a FBS account. Can I move the signal to the correct account ? I didn't found how to do it in MT4.  Thanks

I am copying a signal. The equity is €996 and I have tried to migrate the signal with equity stop levels at €250, €50 and now €1. The VPS journal keeps saying the signal is stopped because the equity is below the allowed value. Even without any trades open. What am I doing wrong?

Hello dear Community, I would like to program an EA that gives me a maximum Lotsize per day. If I am allowed to set 0.1 Lot per day, then 10 Trades x 0.01 Lot can be set. Or just 0.1 lot. So that i cant overtrade! Should normally be a very small code and not difficult but I am unfortunately not a...
Hi, Is that possible to include TF as a parameter to my ea? It enter when rsi = x and price is out of keltner, leave when rsi = y. What make me think it can't is that : datetime lastCandle = 0; If I use a tf different from the "analyzed" it will try to use a candle as datatime and may not function.....
  Invalid Stops (30   1 2 3)
Hi, My ea is sometimes triggering "Invalid Stops". I believe that's why it calculate the stop value based on my medium price, and in Brazil's index, price always end with 0 or 5. And the Error only appears when finishing with 1,2,3,4,6,7,8 and 9. What should i go to avoid that? Thanks!
Just margin by itself does not count in the stoploss and fees so given enough market positions there will eventually be a stopout. There should be a formula to check free margin based on this for a new position with stoploss and fees. Calculating margin in such a way predicts the outlook of a margin...
