within a chart, when you point a line with the mouse, after a few seconds, an instant box is opened, and the name & value for that line is shown.
If you move the mouse a few pixels below/upside, you can still get the instant box, but it will show a different value for the line.
I think that if...
I am using the MetaTrader API. From what I understand, on a MtSendOrder API call, even if the return value is RET_OK, I am not guaranteed that the order has gone through. Presumably, if/when my order appears on the list from MtGetTradeRecords, I know that my order was successfuly. However, how do...
First I would like to say what a great trading platform MT is. I have tried many other trading platforms but they are all full of unnecessary and useless bloat. I find that MT is a very practical trading platform.
Anyway... It appears as though you cannot set the size of normal...
Dear Ladies and gentlemen
I tried to get the API sample #2 working. I use a demo account. My username and login are correct. The port 443 and 1950 are enabled. In case I use the ip-address from my computer I can connect but not login. The data server “mtdcsrv” is running and tells also “running”...
I have built a speech alert system that runs once every new bar. The alert uses iCustom(). It worked fine even after I recompiled it up to build 167. After I upgraded the MT4 into 168, my signals got reversed. Long signals become short signals, and vice versa. Pls look into this.
I think this is a...
Currently I plot some long-term trendlines which I require to move, though I need to keep the same angles - this is important. And I need to move and see them across differing timeframes.
The problem I have at the moment is to move a trendline, you need to double click it and move it by the...

MT4 expert closes orders without a reason. Here is a ticket number:503690
I have an expert running for a month but this week it closed several times without any reason.
OrderClose is based on time, maybe you are playing with the time this week:
I have built a strategy to check for the cross-over of the Ichimoku clouds,i.e., MODE_SENKOUSPANA & MODE_SENKOUSPANB. On the MT3, gave me only 1% return over 7 months. Not so good, but I feel good about the Expert MT4 so far. Only time will tell!
Wonder anyone working with the Ichimoku clouds...

I was wondering whether it's possible to code an alert based on an simple moving average crossing a trendline ?
There would be 2 trendlines (triangle). Is it possible for mq4 and/or mql language to identify a generic trendline?
Ideally I'd like the same script on a number of currency pairs,...
It would be nice if an MT4 user had the ability to select any time period. However, until that is possible it would be extremely helpful if Metatrader added both the 10 Minute period and the 2 Hour period.

How do you calculate OHLC with MT3 api ? Is it consistent across all MT3 servers or a broker based setting ?
For example, I got tick data :
with the in between ticks being one of those 2.
When I got the server data for that same period it gave me :
I have an expert advisor running with just one line of code: OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,1,Ask,3,Ask-20*Point,Ask+2*Point, NULL, 0, 0, Aqua); What's suppose to happen is that it should keep buying until I'm broke. I'm just testing it this way because this function is not being executed by MetaTrader4...
I keep getting this error in my experts log continually..
ArrayInitialize function internal error
The funny thing is the code works fine and does exactly what I want it to do, it is just these errors in the log.
This is an extract from the code I am using.
I have a demo mini-forex $3000 account with the following lots allocation logic:
vLots= Ceil(Balance * 3.0/10000)/10;
if vLots < 0.1 then vLots=lots;
if vLots > 1 then vLots=Ceil(vlots);
if vLots > 5 then vLots=5;
Keep getting this error in the journal:
05:05:33 '69451': order buy stop 0.10...
- what time does the time field in TickInfo struct represent ?
- is it possible to turn off pump so I can get historical data, then turn pump back on ?
- will MT4 servers be backward compatible w/ MT3 client ?
I am developing using the metatrader 3 api
Here's my question:
Say I have 10 1 unit buy positions. Then, say I want to perform 1 10 unit sell order.
Now, I need to enact 10 CloseByOrder(..,..) calls. How long do I need to wait between API calls, to avoid "too frequent requests" error...
