Hi, after i've searched an error for hours, i realized that the failure is not at my code. I had some real crazy behavior; calculations for ALL of my traded symbols are correct, but only not for EURUSD. and only on DemoAccount. If anybody of you uses a AFX-Capital (SuperTradingOnline) Account,...
Hi there, when I move a SL or TP manually, it takes less than a second until it´s confirmed and the SL or TP is at its new price. When I do the same by OrderModify(), it takes 5-10x more time. How can this be? In my log I can see, that the function is called only one time, not several times, so this...

I have my EA protected for a crash by means of a file (crash.bin). While running the EA it writes the crash.bin file every 30s, and it holds important data for when having to recover. If the EA is removed on purpose then the crash.bin file is deleted as part of the OnDeInit() routine, if MT4 crashes...

Hi, I tried to run latest version MT4 on XP and Win7 in VirtualBox, it crashes on startup. Can MT4 run in VirtualBox? Or it "detects" the virtual machine and kill itself for anti-debug purpose? I need to run MT4 in virtual machine to do some test. Thanks

When using indicators in an expert agent what is the best/most efficient way to do so? Say for example I want to see if a moving average is increasing is: ma[0] = iMA(Symbol(), 0, maPeriod, 0, 1, 0, 0); ma[1] =  iMA(Symbol(), 0, maPeriod, 0, 1, 0, 1); increasing = ma[0] > ma[1]; the right /best way?...

I am trying to get the value (price for last bar) of a horizontal line (added manually to a graph) by the function ObjectGetValueByShift( after renaming it from object properties as "MyLine)"  ,  but the value returned is always zero.

I can only imagine that this forum is getting a reputation for being mostly un-moderated. The amount of topics started by  spammers is now exceeding legitimate threads.
