If I have missed this function. please tell me. I would like to have the ability to plot a currency pair against another one in the same window. Perhaps even three pairs in the same window. Also, the ability to plot the inverse of the pair would be helpful. Seeing how pairs cross in realtime would...
I've been having some weirdness with reading Bar[0] of custom indicators in EA's. IOW, when I try to get the current value of a custom indicator from within an EA I sometimes get numbers that are slightly off. If no one else experiences this, then ignore...it is my fault. -Tony
Hi! It's wonderful MT4 was officially released! I love MT4! So I personally translate the MT4's manual into Japanese, and distribute MQL-Scripts of making by oneself. recommend MT4 for people in Japan. By the way, I have one question. Can the Time-Zone of MT4's terminal be changed to...
Hello everyone :) I'd like to repeat the question asked by Keris2112, that is : how to create an array of indicator values inside an experadvisor. I'm new to mt4 and i've made only few rather simple experts. Now i'd like to employ functions like iMAOnArray but i simply don't know how to create...
MetaTrader 4. Build 175. 1. Added Strategy Tester. More detailed information in built-in help file of terminal; 2. You can open in offline mode the chart with generated testing data containing bar ticks; 3. Added sorting of orders in "Terminal" window; 4. Unused tabs of the terminal...
When using the period converter, the current price is not displayed on the vertical scale of the new chart. How do I make the black price box appear? Cheers, Pete.
I think I may have found a bug with the latest version of MetaTrader. If the variables "Ask" or "Bid" are used in the "init" section of an Expert, they return "0"
Thanks for great tool in MT4. One of the strategies I wrote uses detetime functions (like CurDate()), eg. I want to open new positions only between noon and 2 PM. Unfortunately it seems it does not work fine during backtesting. As I can see in Journal, CurDate() function returns real current...

I tried to install MetaTrader 4 on Linux using Wine and I get a dialog box that says, "This operating system is not supported." It looks to me like that dialog box came from a test within MT4 itself. Is it possible to remove that test so we can try to see if we can get it working under Linux?...
Hello, The MT4 is nice but missed some built-in conversion functions, e.g. the "DoubleToInt" proposed currently I have to use "DoubleToString" then "StringToInt" to do this , maybe a build-in would do it much faster
just wanted to know if there is a place to drop them
MetaQuotes, Just noticed the ability to save/load an expert's property inputs - nice touch, guys. Having used it, it is now quite invaluable. Well done Martin
hello and thanks for the great tool. I have been trying unsucessfully to test a strategy using data from 3 years ago til now, even after setting the date on strategy tester I still can't get my test result for that period. it seems to be using data in my history center, my question is how do I add...

  MT4 on Win98 (2)
Hello, Has anyone been able to install MT4 on Win98 successfully? I've got an extra computer here and I want to do some backtesting on it, but after I installed MT4 on it, I can't load the program. I might need to download something from Microsoft (eg. MDAC), but I don't know what I need.
Is there an easy way to get over 5 years of 15-minute chart data? I keep having to use the left arrow on the chart to go further into the past, but I grab maybe a day's worth, and it resets to today.
I would like to use the optimization feature in the backtesting, but I don't know how to do it. What code do I need in my Expert Advisor to turn that feature ON? Let's say for example, that I want to test for the best EMA: double emastuff = iMA(NULL,Period(),xxxxx,0,MODE_EMA,PRICE_CLOSE,0); where...
Hi all, Could somebody explain how I would write the code to place the value of say, the CCI or RSI, into an array. I'm thinking more along the lines of per bar, not per tick. I want to be able to use iMAOnArray() in an EA, but I need to place the values of the indicators into an array first...
Dear all, I’m using MT3 need some advise… does anybody knows how to get value OHLC from the previous bars? regards, Andy
Congratulations to the MetaTrader Development Team. You all did an excellent job on this program. I've been playing with MT4 for 2 weeks (started with build 173) and the improvements in build 175 are amazing. I've been fooling with the backtester for a few hours now and it looks very promising....
The MT4 backtester is looking GREAT!!!! Havent checked it for bugs yet, but so far it's been very impressive. Million thanks!
I have a little problem with DDE in MT4. When i open a spreadsheet, it sometimes takes a long time before values are updated (i get a bunch of N/As) and during week-ends they never get updated. This was not the case with MT3.8 which always instantly updated DDE fields, even during week-ends. I...

to get more you have to manually type in 9999999999999999999 and hit enter. It will change to the max which is a billion looks like.
Finally, my first working system in MT4. Results are very nice. But there are a few problems. a] Large drawdown. Not due the nature of the system but because of some bug. b] Less than 50% of the trading opportunities are taken. (partly causes a) c] Pyramiding seems to be flawed; but that could also...
