Hi, The subject listing pretty well sums it up. I’m new to ForEx and am using this commercial EA (FapTurbo v47 b225) on the MT4 platform while I am learning. With the default settings I was losing money. I’ve managed to tweak it so that it is slowly but surely gaining a little now but obviously...
When closing orders, do I have to reset or clear the value for " OrderTicket() "? I've noticed that when closing one order and opening another, the ticket number for the order being closed is the same number as the order being opened. And often the order to be opened doesn't.

so if you want to use the average range of the last 1000 bars of the current chart: sum(high-low)/n, how would you code this to use as a variable in your code? This would need to be adapted somehow.. for(int i=0; i<limit; i++) { CurrentHigh = iHigh(NULL,0,i); CurrentLow = iLow(NULL...

I'm trying to create an EA that will place a pending order X pips above the ask price. For example, on the daily EURUSD chart it checks when the price moves above the bar moves above a moving average and then sends the pending order 20 pips below the MA, i.e.; Ask: 1.42211, Buy would be 1.42231. Now...
Hi, I've been customizing a Pivot Points indicator and I think I need to get the calculations in a different way. The indicator uses a variable to set a "hours shift" from the server. For example: I use a server that show me the charts in GMT hour, so I set the indicator to calculate the pivot...
Hi All, Firstly, I would like to thank all the people who have helped others such as me.... Complete newbies! I have spent the last month or so using the forum to teach myself this MQL malarky but have now encountered an issue which is confusing me no end; MagicNumbers. I'm not looking for the code...
I developped an EA that out of 40 months historical data, tested month for month, on one broker (FXDD) shows 50+% profit/month. 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...
Hi, Im working on an EA (really just leaning how to program in MT4 ) And I had an idea and I want to know if its possible. First let there be a condition and the EA opens an order With no SL or TP (I know this is not practical, but bare with me) OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,1,Ask,3,0,0,"Well Placed...

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...
Hello, What I'm trying to do, is calculating the average price change in lets say the 10 last ticks. Does anyone know how this could be realized? Thanks in advance, Eggat
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?...
Hi, I'm trying to have the same history data on EURUSD on two different computer. The 2 platforms are from the same broker.

Is there a way to check when an order closes whether it hit it's stop loss or take profit? How do youm know when it has closed to trigger some code?
My Forex Monster demo account started with $3,000 in it but has now got down to just $352.71. I think it is no longer tradeing in sim for me because the funds are so low in my account as I can see arrows for trades being taken but no trading occuring in my trade area.

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);...
