Hey Guys, Has anyone had a look at the FX Turning Point indicators at http://www.tradecurrency.ca/ ?? They're for the Visual Trader platform unfortunately but 'look' to be reasonably good for identifying a turning point. Thoughts? Martin
Hi All, This is a quick question for all of you coding gurus out there. Im in the process of designing anindicator. I thought it was finished and everything was good to go, and it seemed to look ok when loaded up. But then I started realizing, my 120 gig hard drive was filling up fast. After...
Can the MT developers post an example of a robust EA that uses stop orders to enter trades? The stops are calculated based on time of day, so if there is no new tick there, the next incoming bar should be considered. I am looking at the samples but they are not robust. They don't have error...
Some time I need lock the object to current position, to make the object can't moved by mistake. I am also wish I could change the font size of the object description, it is too small now .
Hi, I wanted to know at exactly what stage of the order process (see below - stage 1,2,3,4) does OrdersTotal() record the number of orders open in the trade terminal. Is it at stage 2 or 4? 4 - 2006.05.04 20:59:20 '404764': order is open : #477700 buy 1.00 EURUSD at 1.2600 sl: 0.0000 tp: 0...
hello, If we get an Error number 4 (ie "trade server is busy"), should we resend the order again? Or will this order still be recorded with broker and waiting for execution. I want to avoid placing same order twice. Thank you in advance. Regards RJF
Hello, This is question regarding Error number 139 which states - ERR_ORDER_LOCKED 139 "The order has been locked and under processing. All attempts to make trading operations must be stopped, and the program logic must be changed." My concern is: If I get Error number 139 I want to avoid placing...
Hi, Would anyone be interested in coding this type of thing for an indictor? I have a set of indicators that I use for entry criteria, and if I could get an indicator of it's own that would show when all the criteria are met, that would be neat. I am using this on 1 min-5 min charts so not alot of...

I create so far so good strategies that I would like backtested. I am looking for an individual that has backtesting down to a RELIABLE science in MT4. I spend to much time researching and creating EAs to take the time to backtest and log. If you are interested I am willing to give you the...

  Java (2)
Hi, Anybody know if there's anyway for me to hook up the metatrader platform to call java methods from a class file. Is there a mediating program that can interact between a java class and the meta platform to avoid writing C++ dll files? Thanks..
Hello everyone. I am new to this forum but have been reading along for a while. I have been trying various strategies as posted by all of you. Thanks for all the help so far. I have been trading a demo account using interbankfx platform. I have done reasonably well for a beginner ( about 1-3000 per...
Since you are working on the dictionary improvements, it would be good idea to mark which function cannot be used in Script, Expert and Indicator. Knowing that the Indicator cannot use OrderSend() I was under an impression that I cannot use other Order....() functions. Last week I was pleasantly...
Hi Slawa, Just wondering if I can use sleep function to make EA "wait for 8 seconds" between trading operations, for example: If (Bid>High[1]) then Open Order 17; Sleep(8000); If (Bid<Low[1]) then Close Order 17; Just want to make sure that if I do this, that it will not cause...

Hi, say I have open orders of currency pairs A, B, and C. Is there a way to get the expert to recognize that there is no open order of currency pair D, and given the right conditions, to then open one? Or to see that there already is an trade open for currency par A and not open one? I'm wanting to...

HI can someone convert this EA to MT4? Can it be improved? Many thanks Kirsty
Hi Slawa, Got your message before and I dont see the problem with using sleep function between trading operations as a delay. This is the expert im using below, and it works fine on a demo account. Im now worried about what you said about "game for all money" what doies this phrase mean? Is...

I've asked about this many times, but so far noone has been able to help me. I use the Murray Math Lines F indicator for plotting the murray levels, but it has a couple of bugs that are a big inconvenience to me. First thing is that it doesn't refresh itself, and second is that it repaints the past....
