E.A freezes when i try to backtest it on higher timeframes (1D works), any clues? (attached EA). 
Hey guys, I am looking for an EA that will allow my stop losses and limit orders to be invisible to my broker. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to one that already exist or to a programmer? I am not looking for strategy included, just those two options right there. Thanks

Hi, Writing a pretty simple EA and everything seemed to work. Now running it on a different broker it keeps giving the 131 error. I tried getting the min lots, max lots, lot step with Marketinfo, it returns that minlot is 0.01, but for bot maxlot and lotstep it returns 0. What does that mean?...
In this EA found in the articles of the site, it is not working correctly for me, there is no batch that I put that would make it work, back this error message, I am trying to make this EA work with a lot of 1.0, but there is no way for this . Someone can help.
Hi guys,  I need help in correcting an EA... The full code is referred in the postion instead of order, but couldn't find the right term (i.e. what's the parallel name for POSITION_VOLUME - which is not ORDER_VOLUME) input double Multiplier = 2;input string SignalName = "Luobo Froex";input int...
Hello i would like to ask in generally, what kind of optimisation of you preffer - Long term you optimize your EA (only parameters not logic) with range from several years and hope that in the next year or months it's doing good, or you optimize for the last year and optimise each month to adapt...

Comments that do not relate to the "Mouse coordinates and CHARTEVENT_OBJECT_CLICK", have been moved into this topic.
How can I get mouse coordinates under an object when I click on it? Is it possible for MT5 to generate 2 events when I click on an object? I mean, CHARTEVENT_OBJECT_CLICK and CHARTEVENT_CLICK also? I tried almost every idea I had, but now I'm stuck. I cannot get mouse coordinates when I click on...

Hello, if I do: string a = EnumToString(MODE_SMMA); I get: a = "MODE_SMMA" Now, I would like some function that does just the opposite, I mean something like: int b = StringToEnum("MODE_SMMA"); b = 2 where 2 is the int value associated to the constant: "MODE_SMMA" Regards, cyberglassed.

Hi everybody, It's possible to convert an enum to string though EnumToString. What about the reverse operation? There's an way to convert it back (other than create and function and compare item by item)?
Is there a watchlist program where I can set it to load my EAs by clicking on a symbol?  Something to simplify the loading of EAs on multiple charts. Just click on symbol and chart automatically loads with EA

I am really confused becoz I dont know where...

I'm performing some testes with my EA, and I realized that when I'm in the strategy tester (simulator) the tick value and tick size are different from a real situation. For instance, I'm printing these values: m_symbol.Name() m_symbol.TickValue() m_symbol.TickSize() And the results are: Simulator =>...
Hello, Im trying to understand trade function in the Ctrade class. I don't get what is the difference between the Buy function and the positionOpen function. I mean a Buy is to open a long position,  so for what is positionOpen? Thank you.
Weird behavior here. CiLow.GetData( 0, Bars( _Symbol, _Period, initialTime, TimeCurrent() ), buffer ); The previous call, when run in back tests, returns a buffer with n elements, where the first of these elements is the low of bar at initialTime. However, the same call in a demo live account...

Is it possible for an EA/script to save ALL chart templates that are open in the terminal? I know the chart operations are available but how do I search for the values of the chart ID's that are open? If I can pull a list of the open chart ID's can I use ChartSaveTemplate to reference each...
Hi, I'm used to thinking of currency trades in USD notional exposure (i.e. 100,000 lots of TRYZAR would be 28,400 USDZAR) And USD would be my deposit currency. Is there an easy way to get USD exposure (or deposit currency exposure) from FX orders in MQL4? I've had a good look at the Order functions...
When a time is hit, I want to store the current price in a attribute. That attribute does not change. I know to use datetime, and Bid. But Bid will refresh on every tick, I assume. It is for data release buy/sell stop strategy. The second data is released, store currentprice. Then set sell/buy...
