I am a Metrader Newbie and amd trying to put together a Expert that Will Close a Position at a Certain Time. Nothing every happens with the Expert Below. Can someone tell me what is wrong?

Then run both in demo account and same broker:
ea1 in H1 and ea2 in H4 on the same PC. The results should be the same just...
I just used "Insert - Text" and "Insert - Text Label" to add text to my chart window, but whatever I do I can't delete them again even if I reload my template. How can I get the text off my chart?
Many thanks for your help.
When using an EA, do you have to have the indicators loaded on the chart with it for it to trade correctly? Or just the EA? Also, does anyone here trade with their EA only. No manual trades? Just curious. Sorry if its been asked before.
There are a few possible bugs I've come across over the last month which I thought you might like to know about:
1. If a chart is opened and quotes need to be downloaded, the download fails if MetaQuotes looses it's connection which is to be expected - no connection, no quotes downloaded....
I have 'searched' the forum but cannot find this mentioned - if it has been addressed, apologies.
Attach an EA that uses 'Messagebox' in the Init function to a chart and it works fine - but only once! Even removing and re-attaching the EA to the chart fails to get the Messagebox to open a menu box...
Hi, I read what I could find on the volume indicator in Metatrader, and that seems to suggest the Volume refers to the number of ticks per unit time, rather than the amount of lots traded per unit time. Is there a clearer definition of this indicator? Thanks, Tom

Newbie question this, but how can I set an order so it closes when one MA crosses another MA?
For example here's my code to open a trade:
if ((CurrentMA1 > CurrentMA2) && (PriorMA1 <= PriorMA2))
StopLossLevel = Bid-(10*Point);...

Good day to all I was wondering if someone knows or a freely available EA that I can modify for specific needs. I am looking for an EA that takes a position depending on where price lies with the 100sma on an hourly chart. Ok so say at 16:00 price is below the 100sma, I want a buy order and sell...
If possible could the date and time be split into 2 columns.
Date for date and Time for time.
At present it is all grouped together in one column and makes it hard to read and hard to work with in excel.
Hi guy. Here's my latest configuration. I actually use it for trading. Missed out on the really big part of the euro move...too sluggish getting off the boat! The first shot is my 'trigger' screen (Without all the words!) I find that MACD & Stochastics compliment each other really well. The second
I know that this is, perhaps, not the most appropriate place to ask, but judging by the other posts, I could tell that a lot of people here do know what they are talking about.
The following applies to real accounts, and mostly to orders executed during normal market conditions...
Looking for an EA that would keep track of the max drawdown. If hedging two correlated pairs I only know when I turn a profit, but I have no way of knowing how far it draws down when things go wrong. Thanks for any help.
