Hi, I have coded a very simple EA to trade on gold. I'm use to code some EA for EURUSD but while back-testing this new one on Gold I have been really surprise by the result. Usually when coding EA, I focus on reward:risk ratio. This one gives a reward:risk of 10:1 which is... too good to be true :)...
Hello everyone, Friends, my ea gives a warning. I wonder why? Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance.

Hey all, I'm new to MT and to this forum, so any and all help is appreciated. I would like to do something simple and straightforward - calculate various retracements from the current daily hi/lo as price continues to update throughout the day. So for example, if at 10am central the current range in...
Hey all, I have been searching for a long time for an EA that moves SL to break even at a set target price while also closing 1/2 of my position at that price (so it does 2 things at once).  Does anyone know of an EA? And it must work for MT5 because that's the software I use.  Thanks in advance
I had an idea - to show how at the last three bars the direction changed. And at the same time for all 21 timeframes. That is to show on the screen what bar - bull or bear.
I‘mtrying to close a position but I get always the ERROR: invalid fill. Thecode is basically as follows: ...CpositionInfo PInfo;CTrade Trade;...for(uint i=0; i<PositionsTotal(); i++) { if(PInfo.SelectByIndex(i)) { if(...) { Trade.PositionClose(PInfo.Ticket()); } } } Whichproduces the...
Hi, I'm new to this market and program so I started a couple of demo accounts each with its own signal subscription.

Hi all Is there a way for the active EAs to communicate with eachother or for some hierarchy in the order they run . For example 5 EAs running on the same MT4, where in order for eachone to run,it has to wait for the previous one to complete itsoperations. What I think is to have the EAs create a...

"You can use the explicit casting to convert the base class pointers to the pointers of a derived class. But you must be fully confident in the admissibility of such a transformation, because otherwise a critical runtime error will occur and the mql5 program will be stopped." Is there any way to...

I cannot find any docu about compiling expert adivsor in demo version? How do I create a demo version of EA or Indicator?
I'm trying to use the following function to "see" if the last trade resulted in porfit or loss. The problem is: the function is returning "true" whether the profit is positive or not, that is, always returns true. I don't know if i'm using the wrong "get" functions or misunderstood how they work....
This is a repost, as I did first post it in the indicators section. The EA uses the PipsChartData library, which code-wise belongs to the indicator.
I'm trying to submit an EA that only operates on the M1 period, but the automatic validation always fails because it is testing on M30, H1, and Daily periods.  I even have ChartSetSymbolPeriod(0, NULL, PERIOD_M1) set to force it to run on M1 and redundant code to return in OnTick if the period is...
