I'm writing on behalf of the Yahoo MetaTrader Expert & Custom Indicator group. We currently serve 1500+ growing international members and also host an extensive collection of MT Indicators and Experts for MT version 3 and 4. During the last few weeks, we notice that the discussion topics in our...
It may be too late for this suggestion, but it would be nice if MQL4 provided specified functions that if a programmer defined, would be called by MT4 on certain events. Instead of the Start() function that only responds to ticks (ie, a tick event triggers a call to Start()) and then requires the...
It would be handy to have the ability to "look inside" a bar quickly using the context menu.
In other words, if I were looking at a 4H chart I could click on a bar that would bring up a 1H chart of only that bar I clicked on; and clicking on a bar on a Daily chart would bring up a 4H or 1H chart of...
It says in the Knowledge Base that the DDE items below are available :
— request ACCOUNT: =MT|STATUS!ACCOUNT
— request BALANCE: =MT|STATUS!BALANCE
— request CONNECT: =MT|STATUS!CONNECT
They don't seem to work though.
Is it normal or is it just me ?
Firstly thank you very much for answering my question about error codes ("Error Numbers").
Subsequently I have been receiving many 130 and 138 errors and have not found a good explanation of the process (step by step) execution process of the SendOrder() command. Thus I have a few additional...
I know this is probably a minor thing but would really free up desktop space at time if you were able to lower the trading platform into the system tray. Or have a check box that give the option of where you want it to lower to. I know I know small thing and unimportant.
I want to get the retracements values for a fibonacci retracement object.
let's say the chart shows a downtrend, with higher high at bar 5, and lower low at bar 0.
I coded an expert with the following code:
The code below is supposed to indicate a MA Cross but it does not. Maybe I am wrong.
I'm afraid I don't have much information on this bug or able to produce it consistantly but if I have an expert loaded on a chart and then change the period of the chart, the "Period()" function sometimes returns the period of the previous chart, rather than the current chart. I've experienced this...
MetaTrader 4. Build 152.
1. Added investor password for an entrance on account without trading. Unfortunately, the accounts list in "Navigator" window will be lost. Accounts are not deleted on the server side and they can be added again to the accounts list of "Navigator" window, using logins and...
Hello everyone, I just wanted to announce that I made a folder for FXFisherman members to save the bandwidth for scorpion. I suggest to use it for any screenshots, avatars, profile pictures, mql, exp files you have (sorry txt or html won't work). Basically anythuing you can think about. I have a...
Thank you very much for Jurgen, Chang Kong and Mazhit to help me solve connection problem. I download mt4 and install it again, so it can be connected well.
Hi, Jurgen and Chang Kong
Keep in touch and Happy everyday and everytime.
Good luck in trading
Thank you for your kind attention. I read your suggestion. I have tried many diffrent ways to connect internet(ADSL, Phone Dial and Ethernet), however, metatrader 4 cannot be connected UP TO NOW. I don't know why??? I have no firewall and other limitations. Furthermore, metatrader4 can...
The security hole in MetaTrader 4 is nothing but its new MQ4 Expert Language. The new language allows external API calls to any MQ4 and DLL files, which introduce many posibilties on expert developments: close-source expert, for example, since some developers don't want to expose their creations to...
Sometime in MT4 I receive error numbers 130 and 138 when I've tried to use SendOrder(...). Are these listed somewhere? I suspect one is returned when a requote is issued. I would be interested in some sample code on how to deal with requotes if anybody has a link handy.
Also a bug . . ....
Can I code my custom indicator to apply preset 'levels' to the seperate window when the indicator is applied to the chart?
For instance in the indicator properties dialog, I can pre-define the 'Input parameters' and 'color'. How can I code and pre-define the 'levels'.
I would like to propose a change to MQL which I hope you will consider.
When defining an array, it is often not possible beforehand to know the number of elements that an Array may require. An example of this would be if you attempt to load a quote file but don't know the number of...
I have been using metatrader for about 20 days. I thinks it is the best trader software, and it is never disconnected. However, metatrader4 cannot be connected for several times recently. The server is never beta testing ago? Could you tell me the reason. Thanks!
I was wondering if you would consider creating a FileAppend() function? Unless I'm doing something incorrectly, the "FILE_WRITE" option (used with the "FileOpen()" function) basically seems to totally delete the contents of the file being written to, meaning that the total file has...
I've noticed that in MetaTrader 4, the format of the "export" data date field has changed. In MetaTrader 3, this used to be dd.mm.yy but MetaTrader 4 now exports this field as yy.mm.dd.
Could you please confirm that this is either a bug or that this is going to be the standard from...
