Hi there, Some brokers that use Metatrader as their trading platform often have multiple folders within the history folder that contain different versions of history data depending on which of the brokers server one is connecting to. Taking IBFX as an example, their history folder may contains...
Most retail forex traders only know how to place directional trades, and miss the chance to profit on volatility. Everyday there are economic data from US, UK or Europe, namely Non-farm payroll, New Homes Sales, Unemployment, Personal Income, CPI, PPI etc; some of these datas can move the forex...
  Euro-yen (1)
Price 165.50(weekly close , 6 of June 2008). Euro-Yen is at critical point and now she have two ways for the next 4 weeks. Plan A is to go sharp down to continue the 4th wave or Plan B to go sharp up and make the final 5th wave. If we take a look of the previous weekly correction wave 2 , which was...
Hi there, From a programming perspective am I correct in thinking that every script and expert runs in its own separate thread and that all indicators attached to charts run in the context of a single thread? For example: If I have say 10 indicators spread across 6 charts then ALL those...

  Holy Grail (195   1 2 3 4 5 ... 19 20)
Hi guys I know everyone is looking for that 'holy grail' indicator. But have you ever stopped to think what would you do if you found it ? Think about it, if you found a setup which was consistently accurate and won a lot more than it lost would you have the courage to follow it without letting your...
I was wondering if someone would be able to code an EA to place buy and sell orders whenver this indicator switches to buy or sell. No tp, no sl, no ts. Money management would be cool, but not needed. All it needs is a buy order when price passes the bar(wait till end of candle). And then close...

I have a major issue but only a few have experienced this before, as found in a few forums. I sporadically encounter MT4 freezing when I right click and select Indicator List or Object List and I have not found any solutions yet and it is very frustrating. I am still looking for a solution as this...
  Fire EA: Can you create this EA? (102   1 2 3 4 5 ... 10 11)
Need an EA that looks at the previous days High and Low sets a buy order at the high and a sell order at the low. With an adjustable TP set for 10 pips. Also an option for trailing stop and stop loss. I would like for it to set the buys and sells shortly after 5pm EST. Once either the buy or sell is...
Hi! I have notoced recently that the time display in the Market Watch window does not update smoothly, in other words, when it displays 01:01:23 f.e., it stays as 01:01:23, and several seconds later it displays 01:01:27. It does not display second part every second. Is this normal or do I have to...
I down load all of the data from history center from 1999 on all time frames, then run multiple back tests for a couple of days, then I start to get mismatched chart errors, with an N/A for modeling quality. This has happened many times with different brokers since build 216 came out. Anyone...
Hi there, Lets say that I have indicator #1, indicator #2, indicator #3 attached to the M15 chart. Each indicator has iCustom(NULL, 0,..........) configuration, successively calling next indicator in 1 to 3 order. So the "0" timeframe becomes M15 picked up from the chart. My question is -- If I...
Hi, Does the ticks.raw file contain realtime tick data? If so then does someone know the structure/format of the individual records in the ticks.raw file? Regards, Laurence.
Hi folks. There's an expert advisor, which allows you to trade manually in MT4 tester - LFH Trading Simulator (see in attach below). The system consists of two parts - EA and set of 8 scripts (buy open, buy close, sell open, sell close, limit stop buy, limit stop buy remove, limit stop sell, limit...
I am trying to backtest discretionary strategy as described in "MQL4: Testing Visualization: Manual Trading". Decisions are made at the H1 bar Open so the backtesting model used is "Open prices only". Suppose the following situation: 9.00 am bar - open: 1.0000, bar close 1.0100 (+100 pips)...
AS U ALL KNOW IN MOST CASES NOT EVERYONE CAN BE A PROFFESONAL TRADER SOME TRY AS MUCH BUT THEY STILL END UP LOSEING, AND AT THE SAME TIME IF EVERY ONE KNOWS HOW TO TRADE WHICH CAN NOT BE POSSIBLE, SO SOME AS TO LOSE AND SOME AS TO GAIN IN OTHER WORDS I AM JUST TRYING TO TELL U THAT NO MATTER HOW...
Dear Metaquotes I noticed that when running my EA in visual mode and a rare instance of even hedging occurs (perhaps 2 buys and 2 sells), the equity will still 'bleed'. Have you installed a formula to emulate daily swap rates charged by the broker? This is the only thing I can think of that...

Dear fellow traders, In my spare moments I have a hard time making my brain relax or disconnect from trading issues...Some of you, after reading this, will think that I am either an idiot, lunatic or just stupid. Others might see a point where I see. I have been testing many EA's, systems, and...
Hello there, In MQL4 how can one programatically determine the height/width in pixels of the window that a script/indicator/expert is attached to? i.e. If the script/indicator/expert is attached to the main chart window then how can I obtain the height/width in pixels of the main chart window. i...
I want to upgrade my PC to a more powerful system. I get overload of cpu during market times and lots of indicators :). What is the recommendation of the metaquotes? Is charting calculations more FPU or ALU intensive? I ask this because benchmarks are different on above with Intel or AMD...
  Look At This It WILL Help (22   1 2 3)
Hello, Something that helped me immeasurably in my trading was this. Having a real trigger as when to get in and when to get out of a trade. There are all kinds of "lines" "cross overs" but I am the type of person that likes to have a definate ENTRY POINT not something that can be viewed from...
Hello there. I was wondering if someone could tell me how to program the following: I would really like to create a Shaded Area between the Ask Line and Current Price Line (ie, Buy and Sell Price). This would be great because i would be able to instantly see what the spread is at any given time...
