I have an EA in the market for sale. I want to offer it for rent too. But can't seem to find how to do that. I see other EAs in the market that are offered for sale and for rent as well. How do i achieve that? Does the EA has to pass certain amount of purchases for example for it to allow me to
Hello All, I`m a new member and I`m busy creating an EA, that is able to determine the slope of the EMA in between the opening and the closing of a candle /bar. To do so, I was thinking to just subtract both EMA`s values. After doing some research, I`m wondering if it is even possible, to link a

Hello everyone, I've been coding an EA to automatize my daytrading strategy, and i've run into an issue I cannot seem to solve. The EA runs smoothly and executes the trades automatically in the Strategy Tester , but when it comes to real time trading it doesn't do anything. I have a variable to

I found this Expert in Codebase ( https://www.mql5.com/en/code/11649 ). The author has not been available since 2019. I love the expert for all its features: works on all active charts from a single chart; it is able to treat each chart separately; and very simple. The only set back is it does not

Good night people, I am developing a robot to read the last closing value of many assets. Test to obtain or close 1000 different assets, but the MT5 is very slow and uses 100% of the CPU. Even stopping or robot, the MT5 continues to allocate 100% of the CPU. If you run a test with 200 assets, it

EA may have several market orders open at any time, each order has its own indicator set stoploss value. To trail the same fixed distance from market for an order with SL = 10pips, and one with SL = 150pips is just "stupid". Trailing must be done proportional to the order's initial SL. Problem is
