Hello. I noticed that the last visible bar is not fully visible sometimes.
  Forum rules (6)

All, I have successfully traded forex with MetaTrader for a few years now. I would like to try to apply some of my strategies to the S&P 500. I'm curious if anyone can give me any pointers or links on how I can do this. If possible I would like to maintain the MT4 platform since I'm already used...

  Spam (6)
Is there anything that can be done to reduce the amount of spam (advertising mostly illegal activities)? I never remember it being such a problem until a few months back. I know that moderators can't be online 24x7, but perhaps instigate a vetting process for new members for their first 'x' posts?

Please let me create a new thread for this topic as there are too many versions of code in the old thread. I've updated the code files as the latest versions as enclosed.    1. According to the EA, an old order should be closed and a new order should be open just 1 bar later than the signal....

I read through the post/article at https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/1402 but one thing I am wondering which I am not sure about, even given the guidelines there.  What if the person publishing the article here already published it somewhere else, like on their own website, before submitting it to...

In build 840 MT4 the pending order expiry function does not delete the order when the time expires. edit - posted in mq5 forum under New MetaTrader 4 Build 840: Improvements and Fixes

I have read several posts in other threads about Moderators being selective in certain things. And I constantly see regular Contributors bashing those who are new, albeit some of it deserved in my opinion. I have also seen some regular Contributors just disappear because of all this, I assume.
