Dear Slawa, Will you think about making an option so that all chart windows can have a 1/2 height title bar? It would be nice to be able to use 1/2 height title bars in Win XP without changing the entire computer to smaller title bars. Having all charts with the title bar the size of the terminal...
Hi when i backtested using M1 timeframe, modeling quality was 25%. I thought M1 was most accurate in all timeframe. Why is it 25%? Is this backtest of 25% modeling quality not reliable?

Hello all, I have attempted my first EA and amazingly enough it actualy works,sort of.

The problem I...
Can someone please help me with an EA that I could place just before news releases that would straddle the market with the ability to specify how far above and below the market I want to straddle it, and with the ability to specify how big of a stoploss I want on the position. Is this possible?...

Hi, It would be great if MT4 expert advisers had a password feature to protect our expert advisors. This would allow our company to employ traders to execute our expert advsors but not let them copy or read our source MQL4 codes. MetaQuotes used to have this feature for DealSmart product (product...

Does an EA need to have the indicator placed on the graph to reference the data from the indicator?? If the indicator is only showing under navigator>custom indicators but not placed on the graph - is this enough?? This is a question that has come up because a guy says his EA runs without the...
I was recently told about a strategy that has a 90% success rate and I'd like to see if someone could code an EA for it.

The author won't let me share the entire code as he's selling it for quite a bit of money. This is actually a little snippet from the MQ4 that sheds some light...
