I am trying to learn how to code for Metatrader. Is there a reference manual (eg pdf, chm) available in English? I cant even find anywhere in english the list of the inbuild functions eg: iMACD() When I am in the MetaEditor (version 4 build 137) The help is in Russian, and sadly my Russian is...

My expert advisor has been working fully for over a week now. I edited a single number today (which should not cause an error) in a calculation in the expert and noticed that now it runs as though it were a blank expert. Metatrader says it has compiled it, but in the journal, this message comes up...
Hello MetaQuotes, Do you perhaps have an estimate release date for the MetaTrader 4 API? I am very anxious to get my hands on it. Will the API just be a ported version of the functions available in the MetaTrader 3.xx API, or will it include more options? What languages do you plan to offer the API...
I have been testing Metatrader 4 Beta and i found Metatrader Data Center in this web site just a few minutes ago. What does it do exactly?
I was looking for some documentation but i wasn't able to find it.
I have Metatrader 4 build 1.55. I would like to see how the strategy tester works before I set to work on learning the language and building my own tests. I add the expert advisor "MACD Sample" to my chart. It seems not to do anything. But it does put MACD Sample and a smiley face in the top right...

In MT4, I would like to draw some boxes on a chart via the code. Would i use SetIndexStyle and the style to DRAW_SECTION?
Can someone provide an example for this?

Thank you for your...

Drag and Drop the MA indicator on a subwindow and apply it on

I tried it on the RSI but both (RSI and MA(RSI)) are displayed
but I'd like to see only the MA. Someone knows ?
I developped a custom indicator (a filter) and I'd like to apply...
thanks for the function to apply indicators from different timeframes to your chart. it's working very nicely. just a question, is there a way that you can update your chart if you're in a 30min timeframe every 30mins so that your indicator from a longer timeframe doesn't look dragged out...
