  MT3 Questions (12   1 2)
I recently realized that broker (particularly interbank fx) spreads can diverge more than 10 pips. I am scalping using MT3, and I attempted to code an algorithm to stay out of the market in such times. As the code is fairly simple, i seem to have problems with the following: define: spread(2); tt=...
Ok I have a problem. When I set up by open like this it works. ticket1=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_SELL,1.0,Bid,0,0,0,"expert comment",255,0,CLR_NONE); But when I put in my stop loss and my take profit it doesn't. I've tried the 3 following variations but to no avail. ticket1=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_SELL,1...

Metaquotes, I import a function from dll with a bool as a parameter double GetValue(bool x); My compiler reads the bool value in the dll as - unsigned char with the value of ' 0" '. This will always be read as 0 or false. I think this is a bug and thought it should be brought to your attention...

Anyone who is doing any trading/testing with MakeGrid, please post here. Here are two demo statements that I have had running for about a week. I think they illustrate why this EA really needs to be thought through carefully. On one account, I have it running only in the direction of positive...
  Cynthia Kase (26   1 2 3)
Anyone know of any MT4 indicators that approximate Kase's MACD, peak out oscillator? It's pretty effective for showing divergence setups I think and she's done a lot of research showing it's superiority over other indicators--for what it's worth. Thru
I'm new to the MT4 and recently downloaded the automatic pivots onto my chart, pretty much every one I could find. I'm not exactly sure what formula I have to enter or setting I have to change to get them to calculate correctly from Midnight to Midnight each day. I understand that each period is...

  Cci & Ema50 (2)
Hello everybody!!! I need indicator CCI with EMA50 attached so maybe somebody can help me to create it. That indicator will help to avoid false signals to enter market when you use CatFX50 strategy. Later I can explain how. Thanks
I think this indicator is not refreshing and showing the last dot. You have to shut metatrader down and reopen in order to see the dots. Could anybody please help??

This was given November 2005 and covers pitchforks. Very good system of trading support/resistance channel. rtsp://198.246.142.2:554/mpd/dow/011906_morge.rm
Here's the indicator. Basicly all it is is a pivot point indicator which used fibonacci #'s to calculate support and resistance instead of the standard pivot calcs. Now, I can only seem to make it update at 00:00 GMT which is exactly what it's asked to do in the code, because I can't figure out a...

Hi Metaquotes, There seems to be something SERIOUSLY wrong with your latest build - build 188.
