Hi All, hope you can help me. I have found that if my terminal is shut down by way of power crash or accidental click on the terminal x button, the EA that I was running at the time continues to run when I reopen the terminal, probably due to the incorrect removal proceedure. This nearly always...

Hi all, every morning I start the terminal I get many wrong signals because it takes a couple of seconds until all of my 20 chart windows are refreshed. So my indicators work during the refresh-process what they shouldn't do. I know that indicators can't wait but is there a possibility to check if
Hi guys,  I'm trying to make the OrderSend function work for my first EA, but for some reason it's not executed,  can anyone tell me what I need to change? Update: I can see that it works on forex, but I need it to work in stock indexes through spreadbetting.  For some reason it works in GBPUSD, but...
I've been attempting to average the High/Low range for a predefined number of previous price bars but cannot even get the array to compile without the error "struct member undefined" Can someone inform me of what I am doing wrong here? double candle_body[];ArrayResize(candle_body,num_quiet_bars);for...
Hi i would like to calculate lots such that if say account balance is $1000 to open trades with $100 in other words 10% and when the balance grows to $2000 to open trades with $200. This is some sort of incremental system that should maintain lot size of new trades at 10% of balance. How do i go...
  Trading on tick charts with MT4 !  (143   1 2 3 4 5 ... 14 15)
Hello short term (scalp)traders, I finally found out how to trade with MetaTrader(4) based on tick charts. This gives a much smoother price evolution over time in comparison with bar charts like M1 or M5. Indicators acts much better (faster) this way, at least in my opinion... I am a fan of Woodies...
I am having a problem I haven't seen before. Can someone advise me? Thank you.
Hello, I would like to have something (I don't know if it should be called na EA or a script) that automatically opens a position if the timeframe candle (that the ea is running on) closes beyound a certain level that we define. Note that it is not when price reaches that level, it would be when...

Attached indicator shows buffer signal such as Buffer1 =BUY BUffer2 =SELL I can order if buffer1 or buffer2 is not EMPTY_VALUE. However,if I do this, so many BUY/SELL orders are...
Hi guys, So yeah, the question is in the title. I have an indicator which uses IndicatorCounted() to find out how many candles have not yet been calculated since "last time", but when i switch back and forth between two timeframes, IndicatorCounted() is always zero and thus the whole thing gets...

Is it possible to have access to a txt file while an EA is writing on it ( for example opening it with Notepad )? Actually i'm using the FILE_WRITE flag in FileOpen function. Tried with "FILE_WHARE_WRITE" but returns 5008 error constantly
Hi there, I have the original code of COG for Mt4, wich is available everywere, but it is a linear poyection and I'm trying to make it look like the original Hurst channel. wich is not linear, is it possible?. Thank you!.
I'm attempting to solve an issue but I'd like to have an opinion which solution is more efficient/appropriate in the MQL4 way of thinking. I wrote an indicator that, once a minute, reads a website and extracts a certain value. It will then write that value and the time into a .csv file. Another...
I built this EA and I thought I put in the code to only make one trade per bar but it dont seem to be working. Sometimes it places more than one trade per bar. Could someone please help me figure out why? I'm checking with datetime and storing it in time

"I know very little about coding. Is there any kind person out there that could possibly show me how to add an alert to this indicator?" Help to add an email alert and mt4 app alert to this rsi indicator
I understand little bit why define the MAFIC_NUMBER as an integer, not a string? I think define it as a string is much better than as an integer since you can transform an integer to a string but nit vise verse, right? Besides a string can tell much more than an integer. Right?
Hi there, I have multiple accounts running different EAs. I login into one account  under MT4, and drag the EA onto the charts and its running. That's fine. Then I want to switch to another account to test another EA but the charts with the EA from the first account are still there. How can I...
Could someone please help point out why this EA I have been working on will not place trades live. It seems to place them in the strategy tester fine.
Hi, I am trying to convert a my custom indicator, perfectly working, into an EA. I have set the iCustom function as follows: double vwp_up=iCustom(_Symbol,0,"VWP - Price",1,0);double vwp_down=iCustom(_Symbol,0,"VWP - Price",0,0); Commenting the those variables, to see their value, I get only...
Hi all, It's been a long time, suddenly I find everything automatically turned into MQL5? The following code is a three MA indicator I've been using for a long time.(In MT5 first bar is 0? but this indicator still runs fine. MQL5 running in MT4 is really confusing.) Today I'm trying to add a MA...

Hi guys, I have a forex vps server running an EA. Whenever I check my MT4 trading account on my phone I am getting the notification that another sign in has occurred. That’s fine but my question is does the EA on my VPS keeps running when signing in from another location/device ? Cheers DrTom

Hello, I am looking for the source code of the indicator of "Dow Theory". I'm only interested in drawing a line between the highest and lowest prices. Not all of Dow theory. Thank you,
