Got a problem here. I'm working on an EA, obviously, but I discovered a problem when trying to create orders. I have the lotsize increase by 2x on each reversal. Well, on small lot sizes (0.03, 0.06, etc.) it's fine. The problem is when it gets to lot sizes above 2.5 For some reason the program will...

I have downloaded these indicators and they seem to be very effective...Does anyone have any suggestions for settings/uses? Any comments are very welcome! Time frame suggestions/settings welcome also!

Hi Slawa, In MT4 will a local non-static variable (that has not been initializated explicitly using init() function) "always" start off as having a value of zero? Can I always **safely rely** on all of my non-static local variables starting off at zero? The second question I had is: If I assign...

The non-deal-desk system is the really the beginning step of the process of making...
