I was planning to publish this free EA with the MT4 market, however because it calls user32 DLL, it's not allowed as a market product. So I'm putting it here. Manual Back Tester (MBT) allows discretionary trader to test their strategy with strategy tester using hot keys control entry and exit...

Would anyone know why presets on my EA are not loading. When attaching to chart they show up in the window when I load them, but when I press OK the default sets only show up? I wondered if I have set something wrong on MT4 or in the VPS hosting
Hey guys, I am trying to code an EA that takes positions every time the MACD (21, 48, 3) crosses 0. However, this code takes positions when the EMA 21 and EMA 48 cross. I believe my issue is that I incorrectly coded the calculation: EMA 48 - EMA 21. Can anyone please help me solve this issue? I...

Hello, I'm trying to automatically take screenshots of charts that have Indicators on them but sometimes the indicator windows are empty. I'm guessing it is because the Expert Advisor tries to capture the image the same moment the Indicator is redrawn. For example the two screenshots below were...
