In the following snippet of code e1 is not initialised with any value simply set up as "double e1". If this is the case how can this calculation work since e1 is dependent on a value of e1 already...

Does .CSV File Read work in back-test?  I've created a News EA which reads .csv files and places orders. It works fine in forward tests but does not place a single order in back-test. All the resources on this forum talks about writing files in back-test to .csv. I just want to know if its possible.

Colleagues, Please advise why two indicators with identical mq4 code produce different picture on the chart? More precisely, what is the methodolody of indicator development, for two lines (one drawn in real-time and one produced by calculating completed bars) would be the same? Here is the...
Hi, I'm trying to add a time condition to a custom indicator (essentially to only generate the alert during certain times of the day). I've had a read through some documentation and I understand that the time functions relate to seconds elapsed since 1/1/70. However, I can't seem to find an elegant...

Hello and thank you. I'm new to the forum, so I'll try to make this compact and as tight as I can the first time around. I'd like to create an EA that uses Indicators in multiple time-intervals (M1, M5, M15, M30, H1 and H4). Can MT4 handle plotting something like a PSAR array in each chart?...
Hello. I've been coding EAs for almost a year now, but all of them have used my original code to check closing prices and indicator values of the last closed bar. I am going to start from scratch on a volatility breakout EA and I "think" that I want/need to check "intrabar" prices and indicator...
