Hi there, this simple Martingail Expert here compiles fine and catches all the trades in backtesting. In Live trading though, it catches maybe about 50% of the intended trades and misses out on the other half. I traded it live on a single pair for about half a year and it maybe caught 80%. Recently...
Hi everyone!

I would like to draw a simple indicator in my EA. It could be as simple as drawing myVal:    double D2sma = iMA(NULL, 0, 10, 0, MODE_SMA, PRICE_CLOSE, 0);    double D1ema = iMA(NULL, 0, 20, 0, MODE_EMA, PRICE_CLOSE, 0);   double myVal = (D1ema+D2sma)/2 Is there a very simple and clear example of...

The ideia is not to enter in the range of price of the last position. For example if last position was opened in 1.15 the next should not enter from 1.20 to 1.10.I was using CPositionInfo with PositionSelect(_Symbol) then PositionPrice, but when position is closed PositionPrice returns to zero. 
Hello. I made an EA for MT4 where I combine indicators for multiple timeframes (for example EMA for 1W period and RSI for 1D period). These timeframes are hardcoded in my source code, so it should not affect what timeframe I choose in tester. This is partially true, because when I choose timeframes...
Here we discuss and share some martingale Mql4 code.
Hello, I have subscripted to a signals service but when the EA copies the signal in my account, it doesn't copy the same volume. For example the EA position is 0,02 but in my MT4 platform the same position is 0,01. The margin in the account is ok. Have you solution please? Thanks in advance Davide

It's been more than a month since I've been busting my head with a small EA robot that works with 2-way crunching.  It does scalper in the HFT style. It opens quite a lot of orders and does not go through the stoploss: either take-profit  or through the indicator signal. what I want is to close all...
