I rarely use Global Variables - https://docs.mql4.com/globals - and recently became interested in them for their ability to persist across optimization runs in Strategy Tester.

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 all, I mentioned my system in the free section and decided to try my hand at coding. I wasn't sure how to program the start, but one of the EA's called MasterMartingale here gave me an idea. So I started to program and what I have so far seems pretty interesting. Keep in mind, I haven't...
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...
Hi All, According to the manual, after downloading the history with the download button, all the time frames are being recalculated accordingly (If I download all the minutes from 1999 than also the 5,15,..... 1w time frames database is recalculated and synced).

Hello, Sorry for asking one more question about Open Price, but my search in the forum didn't bring me a clear answer. I added this line to the start() of my EA: if (High[0] != Low[0] || Volume[0] > 1) return; The result, as expected, is that the backtesting is giving very close results on the...
Is it possible to have two charts of the same currency pair and same timeframe and on each chart to have a differnet ea running? Ofcourse, all on same platform. Thanks
On answering a question on IndexBuffer I realize I myself still don't have full grasp on the nature of regular arrays used in Indicators, So, I made a test to achieve that, and have the followings : - If I use a regular array (let's call it RegArray[]) to calculate on prices then an IndexBuffer...
Is there any way to add user-defined parameters to the list of optimization parameters?

I searched extensively for this and found lots with much more complicated issues than this, but I can't find and nor understand how and why dividing and array in half correctly 'resizes' it when I have just entered the count into the Array with OrdersTotal()
