I've been forward testing an EA from August 08 until now. The results from this six month timeframe are recorded in MetaTrader's Account History. When I run the strategy tester for the same six month period, I receive a different result. That is to say the backtest results do not match the...
How do I place a watermark that it shows on the chart when the EA is attached??? Where do I put it in the code?

Hi, Do the open-positions opened by an EA close when MT4 platform goes down? It seems the MetaQuotes MT4 platform keeps the positions even after shutting down. But I am not sure how the EA will manage this position now, since EA runs on the client(my computer). So basically, is it that its a...
