Hi, How often should an EA be re-optimized ? Say I'm aiming H4 or H1 charts... How often should I re-optimize it ? Is there a common sense or rule for that ? Thanks.

I was working on an EA for sometime now, constantly changing things and adding new settings. Here is the latest version for you to try out. It's free and is still a work in progress. It works best on a 5 digit broker, wouldn't recommend on a 4 digit broker. In all of august there is not 1 losing...
Has anyone had any experience with counting periods. I am trying to write code which will count the number of 1 minute periods. Can get the count of the first period, but not subsequent periods. Seem to be just swimming in circles. int LTM=0,AB,AC,AD; AB = LTM; //------ Past...

I'm not sure why, but my EA is acting a little funny. I back test it, it executes the orders, and gernerates the "Pending Order Alert". However, when it is live, all it does is generate the alert, saying, "Pending order Alert". I checked in the properties and along the program bar that the EA...

I have some code which creates a little symbol indicator with buy/sell values. In this example the chinkou green line is above the price so it should be displaying an up arrow but it does not. Any ideas on what I have set incorrectly? The chinkou is always 26 periods behind so that is why I checkk...
