I need some help in writing the code to open multiple orders in an ea I wrote. It should be able to open another buy, or sell order whenever conditions in the ea are met. Also, how do I place it in order to continue searching through conditions. Thanks in advance.
I'm trying to write a subroutine that accepts 2 parameters(Percent, Lots) and return the number of lots to close based on a percentage of the current trades lots size (CloseLots). The issues are as I see it, the simple (Percent x Lots ) calculation can return values that are not valid when divided...
  Over trading (1)
I have back tested many EA's over the years and one problem i find in alot of EA's is that they can "over trade". I say this because i have often back tested an EA and found that it would make 1,2 or even 3 profitable trades in a row and then create a losing trade or maybe even two. For this reason...
I'm somewhat new to plotting graphs, but have learned how to use the buffer and setting the parameters to draw a line, so please keep your answers on the elementary side. What I'm looking for is an indicator that will let me know when one graph line crosses another, and to create an object on the...
So in the last few weeks we've had:  - Live servers running on the wrong time for over a week as it took them a week to adjust to DST (again!!)  - Demo accounts being unavailable for 4 days Both of these caused considerable pain to EA developers & their customers, however, did "a certain broker"...
I've tried to set up an email alert and I keep getting a message saying,"Message was successfully queued! Look at journal for more information."

I have an EA that closes off half the lot of a trade once a target profit is reached. I would like the EA to remember which order it has already closed so it doesn't close it again. I think the only way I can do this is to save the data in a database (ticket number) and have it check the table first...
Let's face it, virtualization software is no fun. I am happily using MetaTrader on my Mac using a program called Crossover: http://www.codeweavers.com/ Everything works fantastic and quickly and it is MUCH faster than running in an emulated environment in Parallels. However, a problem has recently...

Trying to write some easy code that will draw vertical lines each day at the London open and NY close. I would like it to be just on the current trading day. Any ideas? Obviously, I’m new to MT4. Any help is appreciated.

I'm absolutely stunned by the behaviour of my EA during strategy testing. Why in the world are there two different outputs. How could Ask be perfectly divisible by CurrentProfitTarget and not equal to CurrentProfitTarget? Here is the relevant code: Print("LookForClose()");...
What is the difference between OrderMagicNumber and OrderTicket? Seem the same to me.

Hi, How can I terminate an EA if certain inputs are incorrect? I do not want to put a conditional return in start() because its still running and catching the error on every tick.
