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...
