I see that the horizontal scale does not sync with the candlesticks when zoomed fully in. It syncs with all other zoom settings. Is there a setting I should change to sync full zoom?
Hi, I need help to fix my code. My intention is to identify trend with alert or some object text based on Moving Averages for several bars (TrendMinDurationBars).

It's seems that on build 940 there is a bug using Global Variables: when you add manually a GV all is ok, and you can perform normally other functions (modify and delete). But if you close the platform and reopen it you loose all changes. Probably there is some problem with the copy of changes on...
Hi, I try to fix one EA, and make and indicator that shows OrdersTotal(), but when I do backtest and attach the indicator that shows total orders, the indicator shows NOT THE BACKTESTED EA's total orders, it shows the actual MT4 account orders. So, what the problem and solution?
Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. I have an EA already designed, but wanted to refine it a bit and experiment more around it. Does anyone know how I can calculate the running win rate of the trades my EA is placing? Is there no reference to this within MQL4? I already know what the win rate should...

I need a help, since I am not a programmer, I relied to a website to create my EA, unfortunately all is not well. The first thing I ask is the following: extern int MagicNumber = 10001; extern double Lots = 0.1; extern double StopLoss = 50; extern double TakeProfit = 50; TrailingStop extern...

Hello! For Christmas, my parents purchased an Ipad Mini 2 for me. I downloaded the MT4 app and have enjoyed it thus far. For my trading profile, I need the Forex MTN indicator to be applied for a good entry point. I can do it without the indicator, but I believe it is a great tool to utilize for...

Hi there,   Its mostly a theoretical question (but example code is always welcome).   The real question is: how to correctly code the 'frame' of an EA that tests multiple scenarios from multiple custom indicators? The way I'm (busy) building an EA, is not very much focused on 1 strategy, but is...

Hi 1. In MQ4, I understand that there is no concept ofclasses and structs. The only way I found for holding lot of data is arrays(buffer) or save to a file. Is there any other way? 2. It doesn’t say anywhere but I wasn’t able toreturn an array from a function. Is it the right behavior?...
I remember mql4 community was closed in favor of mql5. Didn't know they have re-activated it again! So I posted my question on mql5 forums : MQL4: Sharing file between two MT4 on the same PC I checked a couple of topics for the same issue, but they didn't solve my problem. Any help would be...
It's not easy to see the used Margin of an order if there are a few orders opened.  1.  Is there a simple way to get the used Margin of an order? 2. If there is a short order of "Eur/Gbp" and my account money is "Usd", should I use the bid or ask price of "Eur/Usd" to calculate the used margin? 3....
I've written a large number of indicators and they are fairly robust. I have always followed a pattern to display all but one of the buffers in the main chart window and reserving 1 buffer not to plot but to store measures that are calculated for and retrieved by a given EA. These measures aren't...
Hello! In a loop I want to assaign the values of the operator to specific arrays depending on the loop-variable. This is a simplified example:  ---------------------------------------------------------------   double Array1[1], Array2[1], Array3[1], Array4[1],...;  for (int i=0;i<=100;i++)...
Hi, I've come across on something weird. Having an extern input variable followed by comment changes the name of the variable in the EA's/script's Inputs Window. The following code: extern string myVar = "abc"; // This is a commentextern double d = 2.5; /* Another comment */  compiles fine and...
