Hi, I've searched for an 'upgrade' as I recently found that almost all Renko builders recalculate. I use Renko. The solution is to anchor it in time (set a start date) but i do not know how. I considered paid options but none release the source code. I get why but at the same time trust has to work...

#include<Trade\Trade.mqh>CTrade trade;void OnTick()   {      trade.Buy()   } What do I need to add/change to the code above so that it executes a buy order only once after I run the EA? I'm only newbie. Thanks!

Hi, I just switched from MT4 to MT5 and what a pain converting from MQL4 to MQL5. A major problem I cannot solve is how to have several orders (MT4) in the same symbol each with a different stop loss (SL). E.g. Order 1, buy opened at 1.22, SL 1.20 Order 2, buy opened at 1.25, SL 1.22 Order 3, buy...
Hi all, I have written and currently run a mulit-symbol EA in MT4which monitors and trades a portfolio of appox 300 stock-CFD’s. I have effectively re-written it for MT5 because the brokerI now prefer, uses MT5 instead. The code uses a timer initiated For Loop which cyclesthrough the symbols, tests...
hey all, does anybody know of a way to automate the generation/export of account reports? I found an EA that has been performing well - HOWEVER, I still need to do further testing and observation in real-time. I'm running MT4 on a VPN, and originally thought I could simply get a program that...
Hi community, i have an expert with some gui objects, buttons, editfields, arranged below a rectangle. When the rectangle is dragged, all the objects in it are moved accordingly. I run this on MetaTrader 4 as well as on MetaTrader 5.  The code is pretty similar, except some details. Now the problem:...
Gentlemen, I would like to know if you know any script to update the graph with automatic frequency every 10 min. Thank you.
For me, volatility situations were always times when I decided to shutdown my EA. I felt that my servers would never be fast enough to trade news or, for example, central bank decisions. Now and then I try to keep up with new developments, so my question would be if there are any positive news about...

How do I code my EA to collect the last closed order's profit/loss? I can track the p/l for live orders, and if I close the order, I can collect the data... but if the system closes the order... for whatever reason... I don't know how to collect the data. Chuck

Good morning, I have an EA that I created and have been using it for the past year but now I'm trying to make it "better" and one of the things that I need to do is find a better way to add orders. Today, I use the MqlTradeRequest and MqlTradeResult so I can add order, but by using that, sometimes a...

Is there any EA that can close (or move the stop loss) to a level when all my open trades have reached a certain % profit for the day. Let's say I have $500 in my account and make some manual trades or EA's. I want them to secure all trades when they have reached more than 2% profit. So, if the...

Is this normal that OnTick (and start) function in EA does not work on weekend ? OnTick (and start) works fine in Strategy tester but not in live mode. I expected it to work at least once even it is weekend. I am not sure if this is normal behaviour or particular to my own MetaTrader. I checked...
