I have the following problem:
I wrote an expert that should open and closes orders based on some conditions.
I run several instances of this expert (on different charts). After a couple of
hours first I am getting error 128 (trade timeout) and after that a bunch of error 146 (trade context...
If I use the "grid trading" technique and open sell or buy postions in EURUSD and USDJPY and pending limit sell or buy with TP every 5,6,..30 pips (variable). Can somebody help me to make a script that automatically closes the positions and pending orders, when the pips difference is 5,6..30...
I am just writing to ask what many have been wondering about.
Does metatrader support other data feeds? (fxcm, esignal, etc.).
And if so maybe someone with enough knowledge may share
with the rest how it could be done.
I think I have read somewhere that it should be possible to add unlimited lines to an indicator (from memory Slawa said, that it's only limited by computer memory).
Below is a code that would use 10 but only 8 show in the indicator window (there should be two more red lines on level -100 and -200...
I have just discovered that unless you "ADD" at least one "PARAMETER" to the Expert Adviser Wizard your Expert will not Back Test.
I have not yet checked if it will work life since the server is down for the weekend.
I think that the "Wizard" should be smart enough to ADD at least one external...
I have Print() statements in my simple expert that successfully print to the experts log while running the expert on a chart. The exact same expert run during a backtest does not print anywhere that I can find (i've searched every file modified by today's date, no log file anywhere contains what...

I want to "papertrade" a chart by scrolling it all the way to the beginning, and then step one bar at a time, at its right edge, to simulate real time action. What happens though is that, e.g., I move the chart to February 2003 (using Control Home) to start my papertrading. Then suddenly...

The following has been done in the new version of mobile terminal:
1. Enabled support of indicators. Added 30 new indicators;
2. Enabled support of Trailing Stops;
3. Enabled setting of alerts;
Despite the hopefull promises in the Build 183 announcement I got last night "trade context busy" over extended phases (hours).
This is not the "parallel SetOrder()" attempts since I avoid these with global variables, but really a hanger.
When I am present I can fix these in no time with a...
I am trying to get my EA, which runs on the Euro 5M chart, to read indicators from the GBP 60M chart. Specifically, I am using the Demarker indicator. When it is above 0.60 I am buying. But I am seeing that even when it is below 0.60 my EA is still buying. Is there a bug? Must be, I would think...
I am looking for a list of brokers that allow trades to be done through MT4 platform.
More specifically, since I am currently living in Australia, I like to know if there is any broker
in this region if not in Australia that allow trade through MT4 platform.

I am behind a firewall. But I double checked with the system administrator that port 443 & port 1950 both are open.
any help is highly appriciated.
