I figured I would make as simple an EA as possible, after making hundreds of unprofitable EAs over the past year. The Buy and Sell Conditions are simple as can be: if(LastCandleUp == True && ThisCandleUp == True && LastCandleDown == False && ThisCandleDown == False) Order = SIGNAL_BUY;...
Hi, can anyone show me the code how to limit the total of transactions per day? I see most of the EA only limits open position per execution. Let say I need to limit the transaction only 2 transaction per day, because if more than two, the risk of trade will increase. thanks for helping. ariston

  Split orders (5)
Hello folks! Today's question is: is it possible to split an open position in two different ones? You may say: "dude... why do u need such thing?!?!??" ...and here it comes why.... Suppose you have an open position, say 1.00 lot. Suppose you want to close it when it reaches a certain price. The...
Hi I am experiencing some difficulties with a home-made EA Are there any known occurences that would cause a requote from the platform directly or from the EA setup on mt4 I receive requote message though the brokers logs show no requotes, only a single request reaching them which the price had...
Anyone read anything about this: http://www.nfa.futures.org/news/newsNotice.asp?ArticleID=2273 ? Am I right in thinking that US-based brokers are now going to be required to treat a long order for e.g. 1 lot followed by a short order for 1 lot as a close? In other words, you could do two...
Why is symbol change and timeframe change both bunched up in REASON_CHARTCHANGE? One may require a lot of extra processing time and the other typically should not. Please create new constants to distinguish the two. Regards, JT
I am considering writing an EA that uses multiple entry criterion. The exit criterion will be different for each entry criterion. Is there a way to identify an open position so that the entry method can be known and used to determine the correct exit criterion?

Any one know if this is possible? I want to create EA with only partial data. The rest of the EA's data will be imported using includes of file located on web site. The idea is to try and protect the EA source code. Thanks, Jon
I WONDER IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO CODE FOR A TRAILING STOP THAT CAN MOVE IN OPPOSITE DIRECTION UNTIL A CERTAIN CONDITION BECOMES FULFILED
I am trying to set an Alert to notify me at a particular time. What is the proper syntax for the Time value? For example, if I want to set an alert for 2:00p.m. should I enter 16:00? When I do so, the time comes and goes with no alert. Can anyone set me straight?
I understand we can launch a script directly on the security window but how can we do it automatically from EA ? Or, should I set it at the same time as the EA on the screen but in this case how can I have it coming back periodically ? (once a month) and I suppose that will not show in back testing...

Let's say you want to know how responsive your oscillator is to cyclic market movement, wouldn't it be great if some standard data set existed that consists of two parts: first a cyclic part (e.g. a sine wave) with a constant dominant cycle length (e.g. 200 bars) and second a trending part. Could...
