I am looking for a simple system to trade the Dow Jones. I have been using candle stick analysis but would like something more mechanical. For example, FIBS and/or MA combos would be more suited for my style of trading.
I have searched the net but as yet have not come across a FREE system....
After much deliberation i decided to jump in and get to grips with the mt4L.
Whilst trying to go through some code and 'whipping' something up i was left with the following (initial) questions.
1. When i pull up a chart on EUR\USD and set it to 1H, how do i (using
an indicator\ expert) put in a...
Is there an indicator available to draw a vertical line at a given time throughout the chart e.g. input 0800 and a vertical line would appear at 0800 throughout the chart?
Would be very helpful to identify the start/finish of different sessions, particularly backtesting breakouts etc.
I do not...

After I updated MT4 from build 166 to build 169, the DDE in my excel spreadsheet only works around 1-2 minutes after the spreadsheet is open, after that stop working, with no more updates. I installed again the build 166 and now is working properly as usual.
Is this a bug, or something that I need...
Here is a FIRST version of a script to place buy orders every GridSize ticks for GridSteps/2 below and above current price.
It will not put buy orders if there is already one or if there is a position open. Running it every 30 mins to 1 hour fills all the holes in the grid created by orders being...

I seek how to modify the indicator "Average True Range" of Metatrader 4 so that it indicates the difference between the open and the close and not between highest and low.
I thank you for your answers.

Anyone have a method for returning the current color of the Awesome Oscillator within Meta-Trader? Both MT3 and MT4 have a function for returning the value of AO, but not the color.
Is it possible to copy MT4 onto a cd/dvd in order to be able to trade from computers in public places such as Libraries etc. The reason for this question is that I am on the move with my job all day but can find an hour or two during my work break to trade, providing I can gain access to my...

Hi MetaQuotes Guys,
Someone on the Yahoo site was suggesting MT4 is scheduled to be released within the next month or so.
I was wondering whether you can confirm or at least least on the current anticipated release date for MT4 ?
Can somebody supply me with the following programming:
I use an hourly chart and I get to the point where mt4 send me an email when certain conditions are true, but
how do I stop the emails until the next hour?
Quelqu'un pourrait-il m'aider s'il vous plaît?
Je cherche comment modifier l'indicateur "Average True Range" de Metatrader 4 pour qu'il indique l'écart entre l'ouverture et la clôture et non pas entre le plus haut et plus bas.
Je vous remercie pour vos...
in my init() function , i have a call to ArrayResize that works on intial call, but when the indicator is selected in the Indicator List and a input parameter changed, ArrayResize will fail. Is this expected behavior or a bug ? Thanks, Chris
I keep getting this error - symbol is in instant execution mode but not selected
when trying to close an order, but I have no idea what it means or how to fix it.
Could you shed some light please ?
Hi, I have seen a cople of threads and have asked myself for the possibility to use an offset local time instead of a server time. This is important when designing indicators that rely on the end of day pricing in particular markets. Having a server End-of-day as GMT-1h gives false results for...
Is there a special reason why the minimum trailing stop is 15 pips? Like a stop, a trailing stop is not garanteed.. so why limit the minimum?
Some of my trading strategies use rather small trailing stops (4 pips!) so the ability to set it to this would be welcome. Certain currencies move very very...
I have code that implements the following two statements from the example code supplied:
If TotalTrades < 1 then (no outstanding positions or orders)
for cnt=1 to TotalTrades (should drop in here if there are any open orders or positions)
However, I'm never seeing 'TotalTrades' getting a...
I have a piece of good news everyone. Oanda recently changed the policy about their API. The change will benifit us with: Free API usage for the first two months. That is GREAT! I can spend that time to port the API for FXFisherman. Sample codes and documents about their API are now opened to...
Has someone developed an external program, expert advisor or script to trade a 'grid' or 'net' trading system?
If so, I would be interested in the code and helping to develop it further.
Thanks for any leads,
Great work on Metatrader BTW.
I'd like to see Metatrader with a multi-level 'Undo' feature.
As has happened in the past, I've set up long term trendlines and the like and have forgotten to unclick them, for one reason or another. Selecting another to delete essentially blows them all...
