The mystery is that on another broker's hitorical data (that looks the same) (FXCM in the case) it performs utterly different, even with loss. How can 2 different broker's...

Hi, I have been trading forex for like a month (not long enough to make any assessment of my trading ability) and I have been messing around with EA's and doing stratagy tester on them and some of them get unrealistic gains in the stratagy tester for backtesting (like turning 10k into 100k in a...
Do banks control modeling quality? Or is it the MT4 finction? I used M5 frame and the EA was pretty successful on the old data (25% quality). But it stops being successful and begins to lose when I test it closer to modern data. Long research, but I found the dates of switch. In February 2009, the...

Is there a way to have an EA look at the last trade and see whether or not it was profitable? If it was profitable, I'd like it to take one action, and if it lost money because it hit its stop loss, I'd like it to take another action. Any ideas on how to do this? Perhaps one global variable that...

I've got a Braintrend indicator that is set to alert whenever a braintrend dot is drawn, however, the dot repaints during the course of a candle and I only want alerts when the Braintrend is set, so the candle after. How can this be done?...

My Forex Monster demo account started with $3,000 in it but has now got down to just $352.71.

I want to calculate the slope of a line that is Perpendicular to a known line: Line A is Perpendicular to line B; Slope of Line A: SlopeA = (Price1-Price2)/(bar2-bar1); Because Line A is vertical to line B, So: SlopeA*SlopeB = -1; Therefore: SlopeB = - 1/SlopeA = - (bar2-bar1)/(Price1-Price2);...

Hello How can someone protect an EA? For example: If I have an EA I want to sell but don't want people to be able to see what it is made from and / or change anything in it. Thanks!
I wrote an EA to place orders from an email signal service and subsequently manage the orders afterwards. However any attempts to partially close orders and take profit at predefined levels have so far been impossible. Iam using the OrdersSuite.mqh file available here which includes all error...

I need to do a lot of regression. My regression functions would benefit hugely from being able to return multiple values somehow. Returning an array (or structure) would be acceptable but I can't find a way to do that. Is there a recommended way to return two (or more) values from a function?
