Running an EA on MT4 which requires a very heavy workload (computing large amount of orders).

This has led me to think that the EA workload can be too much...

I'm sure this has been raised many times before, but I can't find a discussion of the topic. When you 'save' a Profile, I would expect it to be SAVED. However, when a different chart or template is selected, it overwrites the Profile you have just been viewing. When you go back and select that same...

Hi guys, I'm testing out on this new chart operation ChartXYToTimePrice() on a custom indicator for the new Mql4. But the price converted from CHARTEVENT_CLICK (x, y coordinates) behaves weirdly.

I have noticed that Rectangle Labels receive click priority over Labels, irrespective to the z-order assignment. Is this behavior deliberate? This can be seen by creating a rectangle label with z-order 0, which partially overlaps a label with z-order 100. When clicking on the "So" text not over the...

Hi everyone!. I came across this article https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/2503. It is a pretty good way to create tabs on a gui panel. Is there a way to achieve the same results with using only standard libraries. Thanks in advance.

So I have a template file attached, where I have a stochastic and MA loaded in the same indicator window.
