I am working on an EA and one problem I have come across is that sometimes, a tradewill open, and quickly hit it's limit and I will get the profit. However, new tradeswill open in the same bar and I will lose money on those. How can I limit one tradeper bar posted on the chart? For example, if a...
Good Afternoon, I am sure this is a rookie question... I placed an S/L marker on 1.05 and the sell/bid price never touched that, but the system took the loss at 1.06 Is there a reason this would have taken place? Also it says Swap 7.75 not sure what that means. Any help is really appreciated....

Hello there! First of all, I'm a newbie in this field! Now when that is said, the thing I'm trying to figure out here is how I could setan alert to play inside the ZigZag indicator. The alert should play when a new ZigZag line has just been created. The thing is that I don't understand when to...

I'm about to commit what I assume to be a huge programming faux pas. Can someone out there direct me to a more layman's explanation of exactly what each function, operator, etc means? I am doing my best to learn on my own, but it's like reading in another language to me. Can someone show me a...
Hello, I am completing my first EA on a simple RSI strat. My problem however is that when testing i want to be able to limit the number of open positions to a maximum of 1 (eg 1 lot) at a time. This is obviously to avoid for example the RSI dipping bellow a certain level and triggering 1 lot then...

Hi all, I downloaded an indicator and try to convert it to EA since some features i would like to use. However the result is not the same as i expected. As you can see in the picture above, the High and Low position with EA are 0. I basically copy the entire code (indicator) to a new EA but it...
I find MetaTrader the most advanced FX trading platform available, the automating and advisor features are simply unique. It is a pity that the English documentation does not keep up with the program's excellence, as it contains many syntactical and grammatical errors which are distracting at best,...

Forum is good, but it is slow :) if (chatroom) { community++; faster_help=true; } What do you think?
This looks like a great Custom Indicator for no-lag marking of price reversal. I have been using TRIX with 4,4 settings to accomplish this. I am now comparing this 5_34_5 indicator to TRIX, and time will tell if 5_34_5 proves out to be a more reliable "predictor". The one and only problem with the...
The author of this indicator says created charts will automatically be active whenever MT4 is restarted, so long as the "breeder" chart is also still open. This is incorrect. When MT4 is restarted with the "breeder" chart still open/active, all special timeframe charts created from it are as dead...

I tried posting this to the code base but received page not found error 404. So it's here instead. This indicator shows either Tema, Dema or Ema based on a tick count per candle rather than a fixed candle time. It shows up and down arrows for trading the ma crosses. Using ticks for candles means if...
