Hey, I'm drafting this litle EA of mine and I've been banging my head against the wall trying to force a decimal (1.5) in the deviation value, that is used in calculating the upper and lower BB bands.

Does anyone know how to use alert feature to have an alert sound at the close of each 4 hour bar?
seems like that indicators do not model bars of a different time frame than period(). what I notice is that the EA is indeed modelling the bar[0]. exactly asthis article, Tester in the Terminal MetaTrader 4: It Should Be Known, describes it. however the same is not occurring forthe indicator. I...
